Editor's Note: This article was updated at 3:41 p.m. Sunday because the family that adopted Marla had changed its mind.
Marla, a Patch "Pet of the Week," was almost adopted by a local family who saw her profile on sister site . Can you help her find a home?
Marla is a 1-year-old shepherd-greyhound mix who knows lots of tricks—not only will she sit and lie down, but she will also offer her paw to shake or roll over when asked.
A sweet and loving dog with lots of energy, she also loves to play Frisbee.
She would be best in a home with kids older than 12. If her new family has other dogs, they should be bigger dogs that she can play with.
Marla is spayed and up-to-date on all her shots.
Each week Hermosa Beach Patch's "Pet of the Week" column features animals like Marla who are available to adopt.
For more information on Marla and others, call the Lovejoy Foundation at 310-350-0980. The organization holds every Saturday and Sunday at on Aviation Boulevard.
