Marvel is a  Golden Retriever X, just over a year old.  He started his life in Spain and arrived in England when he was 3 months.  Unfortunately, since then, he has had little to no socialisation, therefore he displays some reactive behaviours.  Marvel is not good with new people, he will need a family who are willing to visit the shelter multiple times prior to to adoption to make him feel at ease.  If he is pushed too far too fast he will react.  Due to these behaviours he needs an active adult-only home where he will not be left for long hours.  His new home needs to be one with few visitors and have a safe space that he can go to when required.  Outside of the home Marvel can be reactive to vehicles, people and other animals.  Therefore he is looking for confident handlers with large-breed experience.  Previous experience with reactive dogs will also be preferable as he will need ongoing training with this.  Marvel cannot live with other animals or children.  Once he knows you, he is a truly loving, goofy boy, who loves to play and cuddle.
