Marvel, Australian kelpie and Australian cattle dog mix
Marvel is a female Australian kelpie and Australian cattle dog mix in the care of Pet Matchmaker Rescue.
Marvel will get along great with other dogs. She is already spayed and vaccinated. She has mastered her house-training etiquette.
Marvel's current caretakers say:
She loves people and children and she’s great with other dogs. She is a wonderful mother and she even took in a loan puppy who had no family and made it her own. She would be a fantastic pet for a person or family that likes to go for walks and knows how to challenge the intelligent mind of a working breed.

Sushi, white German shepherd mix
Sushi is a winsome female white German shepherd mix currently residing at Pet Matchmaker Rescue.
Sushi is the perfect family dog, and children will love her. She is already house-trained. She is spayed and vaccinated.
Notes from Sushi's caretakers:
Sushi is very sweet, and a tiny bit timid at first, but she adores attention from people and being loved on. She's good with other dogs, but will try to guard her food from other animals, but not people. We feel this will go away with time and with a consistent meal plan. Sushi will be a great companion for someone that will give her the opportunity to acclimate into her new home with a little bit of time and patience.

From Olive's current caretaker:
Olive is such a sweetheart and always willing to please. She would be best in a home with another playful dog and or kids. With a little love, consistency and training she will be a phenomenal dog.
