Marcel - ADOPTED!

Age:7 years
Weight: 60 lbs
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Nicknames: Mr. Magoo, Goo-Goo
Good with other dogs?: Some. Some not. Must be the only dog.
Good with cats? Marcel met his foster feline sibling. It went well but we would like to see more interaction to be totally sure he can safely live with a cat.  Sometimes he ignores the cat and sometimes he chases.
Good with children? unknown, will not be adopted to a home with kids under 10
Activity Preference: Will go with the flow, Champion couch potato, “Energy, do you mean like walking to my food bowl?”
IQ: Smart
Marcel’s favorite things: Snacks! Squeeky toys! Lots of hugs and kisses!
Marcel is good at: meeting people, staying in a crate, behaving in the house, going for car rides, walking on a leash, cuddling, playing
Ideal home: a fenced yard, a quiet home
Training Needs:
Health issues: Marcel will need daily cleaning of his face folds and his tail pocket. Just a quick wipe will do. This is not unusual daily care for an English Bulldog.

Meet Marcel

Marcel! Marcel! Marcel! When you sing the Marcel song at meal time he sometimes will do the Marcel dance! He’s as cute as can be! He’s a low-key boy who goes with the flow of things. He’s a pretty quiet gentleman who is crate trained, house-trained, is good on a leash, doesn’t destroy things and sort of listens when told what to do. 🙂 . He is a bulldog after all. He’s surprisingly quick on his feet! His usual speed is slow or slower but when he’s excited to see you or when chasing after a ball he’s got wings on his adorable, wrinkled feet! His face is just a delicious mush of wrinkles that needs to be covered in kisses several times a day! His adorable brindle body requires many scratches throughout the day too!  He’s the funniest!  He will “hide” when he doesn’t want to do what you are asking him to do!  What he doesn’t realize is that he’s not good at hiding! LOL. He’s full of silly and quirky that is typical of English Bulldogs.  He makes us laugh without even trying.  Goo-Goo is a champion cuddler!

We do not know his history with small children so we cannot place him in a home with kids under about 10. A fenced back yard would be preferred for Marcel to have a safe space of his own to explore outside.
