This week we met Morcilla the dog...

Here's some information on Morcilla from the Humane Society of Ocean City...

"Morcilla (pronounced mor-thee-ya) is a 1-year old lab mix from Puerto Rico. He is a very happy dog that loves walks and loves laying in the sun with his people. He does not have a lot of experience with other dogs so he either needs a home without other dogs or a dog with some patience.

Morcilla just doesn’t play very appropriately. He was adopted from us in July and did great with the child in the home. He was returned to us for some signs of separation anxiety. Morcilla will need a home where his people are home the majority of the day and are willing to work with his insecurities."
