More from Marshall:
I'm a very energetic and spunky kind of dude. Tasty treats and squeaky toys really get me amped up! Once I get some energy out, I enjoy chilling out on the couch. I'm still learning a lot of life's little lessons so I can become a true southern gentleman. I'm currently being leash trained but moving vehicles get me a little riled up.
