Marlee is a charming, 7 year old Chocolate Lab who loves affection. She has spent several months in the care of Misfit Manor and has had many an issue addressed during that time. Most notably would be the diagnosis of Diabetes Insipidis and double TLPO surgeries. Marlee spent most of her time crated prior to her arrival at Misfit Manor, but once shown plenty of love and attention, access to a healthy diet and regular exercise Marlee has blossomed into a joyful soul who is easy to be around. She LIVES for belly rubs and, like many labs, she also loves snacks. To maintain the long term health of those recently repaired legs, keeping her at an ideal weight is imperative so be prepared to ration those snacks no matter how convincing her dramatic attempts at feigned starvation may be. Diabetes Insipidus is a rare condition that causes great thirst, frequent water drinking and subsequently lots of peeing. Luckily it is easily treated with medication twice a day ($60/month) and Marlee is a champ when it comes to taking her pill. In fact, she is easy going with any grooming and handling that may need to be done and welcomes the added attention. Daily walks are another important part of maintaining good physical and emotional health. Marlee has not had a lot of experience meeting other dogs so on leash meetings often cause her to become one exuberant girl. With her strength she could potentially pull you off your feet, so a harness is essential along with the knowledge to continue leash training or working with a professional.
