A volunteer writes: Did someone call for a detective? Never fear, Marcelo and his superior nose are already on the case, the ground, the bench and anywhere else exciting scents abound! Already a fair way into his career as a pet, like a fine wine Marcelo has matured into a robust yet mellow boy with a friendly nature and plenty of independent opinions about just how long one should spend sniffing each and every tree on the block. Hint: it's a lot longer than you think! Marcelo does pull a bit on leash but he seems to be extremely house trained and has already done well his behavior evaluation with near perfect scores on everything from handling to resource sharing to canine socialization. In playgroup he enjoys the company of other dogs and will briefly engage in play, though his main focus as always is on exploring his surroundings, and when we pass fellow pups in the street he politely acknowledges them with a glance before getting right back to his investigations. Boxers have been described as the George Clooney of the dog world, 'a hunk with a sense of humor and an underlying sweetness' and this handsome Boxer-mix boy is no exception. Equal parts adventurous and mellow, Marcelo is looking for a partner as loyal and steadfast as he is. . . could it be you?

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs Marcelo is initially a bit unsure but will eventually engage in brief bouts of play. He is more interested in exploring his surroundings.

*Marcelo was originally adopted from the Care Center in early August but was returned after an incident with another dog, it is not clear whether he bit or was bitten by the other dog. He has seemed alright with other dogs prior to this incident.
