Please meet MARRON – it may take a little while for him to be adopt-ready but who knows!  The progress he has made in just ten days is incredible – so here we are putting him on our map!

MARRON is a tiny boy (weighing well less than 5 kg), with what appeared to be a tiny character.  This is now blossoming into a big one thanks to the love, understanding and patience being given to him by his fosterer.

His experience of the world is nil; his past experience, presumably, of humans is horrendous – and so he is in need of space, time and consistency for him to be able to find out who he is, what the world is like, and most of all to build trust again.  At the moment we have gone from a snarling, fearful dog when approached, to one that just loves to be cuddled and feel that he is safe.  Noises, new experiences, (including cameras as you can see) – indeed many things still frighten him, but progress is huge.

MARRON had a bit of a hair-cut and freshen up and he was as good as gold with his groomer too.  So this little one is certainly full of potential.

He is currently in foster in Department 23 (Creuse).  When eventually he is ready, he will go to the most understanding, patient and loving home we can find for him.  If you would like to register your interest in him, then please either click on the link to our online application form on this page, or, if you are already known to us, drop us a line at
