Marzipan is a medium sized 7 year old female Cross-Breed. She has been with us since July 2018. Prior to that she spent three years in the Radauti public shelter in Romania. Marzipan is not a bad dog, she is a quirky dog and an unlucky dog.
Marzipan suffers from some anxieties that do not make her difficult to manage but make her difficult to understand. She has been rehomed twice in the time she has been with us and both times returned for her quirkiness.
The majority of the time Marzipan is a playful, lovable, sweet dog and perfectly normal. However if a plane goes over she can become tense and panicky and will look for a place to hide for a while. We are used to it we just let her do her thing and come out when she’s ready it’s really not a big deal it’s just her. Other times a plane will go over and she won’t bat an eyelid.
If she’s out and something spooks her she will hide in a bush but if you keep walking she will follow and find another bush ahead of you until you catch up. Another time she might decide she’s scared of joggers, or traffic, or a piece of litter on the floor or a leaf! She’s odd, we like odd, maybe you do too but she cannot be rehomed and returned again for being odd because we are making it very clear, she’s odd!
Marzipan is also very travel sick, probably also due to anxiety. Marzipan gets on well with other dogs but has not been introduced to cats. She will need an adult home with someone who doesn’t stress when she’s hiding or when she doesn’t want to go for a walk but allows her to be odd and embraces it. She needs a quiet home away from heavy traffic and crowds and airports.
All dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).
