Pet of the Week: Marlow, a snuggly retiree with RBF (Resting Boxer Face)

Meet Marlow, a laid-back senior dog in search of a buddy to watch “Wheel of Fortune” with in his golden years.

Marlow’s friends at Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation told us a little bit about him:

Marlow is the boxer you want in your corner!

Handsome and affectionate, Marlow is ready to embrace his retirement. He is a master relaxer who likes snoring during conference calls, daintily sampling new treats and arranging the pillows to his exact specifications. He’s got velvety soft jowls and a fabulously expressive RBF (that’s “Resting Boxer Face,” of course).

A gentle and tolerant guy, Marlow likes to snuggle up with humans of all ages. He’s calm and unreactive around other dogs and politely sniffs every new person that he meets. He has completely charmed his foster family’s friends and neighbors, not to mention their mail carrier and a repairman or two. Marlow is a low-energy homebody who doesn’t need (or want) a lot of exercise — no yard or long walks required! He’s a pro at getting his business done quickly and coming right back inside.

Marlow likes having his people around, and he’s looking for a family where someone is usually home during the day, though he’s fine alone in the house for a few hours. He is housetrained but does have some urinary incontinence — that is, sometimes he drips. (What can I say? It happens to the best of us.) However, he is happy to wear a belly band, especially if that means he can jump up on the couch to put his head in your lap and gaze soulfully into your eyes. He also has some skin growths that we’ve been keeping an eye on.

If you want a loving, low-maintenance work-from-home companion, Marlow might be the one for you!

He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy.
