Marybell is one of those dogs that proves that a hard life doesn't make you hard. Though APA! suspects Marybell spent the first few years of her life not getting the love or treatment she deserves, it hasn't fazed her in the least. Look at the smile on that face! So what else do we know about this snuggle bug?

Adult size: Large

How APA! describes Marybell:

Happy, snuggly and exuberant.

What APA! says about Marybell:

One of the most affectionate girls you'll ever meet, Marybell will gingerly put her front half onto your lap and bury her head into your body for petting.

Marybell is working hard to become a good walking partner and her leash manners are improving every day. She is very happy to meet new people. Though she can be a bit exuberant, Marybell is working on her manners.

Why APA! says Marybell deserves your love:

Marybell had a rough life before landing at APA!. Her body looks like she has been bred repeatedly, and her skin and coat are in poor condition from a case of non-contagious mange. (It will clear up eventually and she'll be one handsome dog.) One look at her enormous ear-to-ear grin and you won't see anything but a happy pup looking for a new start.
