A little of Marmalade’s story below,

Marmalade first came into GBSR with her daughter Sky. She was stressed in her first foster home so we made the decision to move her. She settled amazingly with Wayne and fs Bab’s the pug. It didn’t take too long to find her a family and she was adopted. Unfortunately, the family’s resident dog also a GBSR Willow didn’t take well to having a new sister and poor Marmalade was returned to our care.

Our wonderful Marmalade is a loving and affectionate lady. She has the sweetest temperament and is independent and has the typical Bullie deaf ear at times.

She loves a good cuddle and a fuss her favourite being a good bum scratch and will go off to her own space when she has had enough. Her favourite hobby is having a good nap. She is coming around to play but can be wary.

Marmalade likes a walk and enjoying having the company of the resident dog. She shows very little interest in other dogs while out. She loves getting affection and attention from children.
