Marty has been a superstar in foster care, but he needs a furever home! He’s a heeler or cattle dog mix and weighs about 55 pounds. Marty spent more than 5 months of his young life in a shelter because of a previously diagnosed medical condition, but according to a veterinarian who recently viewed new x-rays, Marty appears to have grown out of it. This is GREAT NEWS and should dramatically improve his adoptability!
Since moving into foster care, we have learned more about his behavior as well. First, he’s as curious as he is sweet. Second, he loves to play with a ball. Marty already knows a few commands, including: Sit, Wait, Down and Leave it. He likes other dogs as long as they don’t try to bully him. Marty does well with people and older kids, but he will chase a cat if it runs. He’s active during the day, but sleeps great at night. And once he’s asleep, he’s out like a light. Marty is house trained, but dislikes being in a kennel.
So, who wants to meet Marty? Since he’s in a foster home, our screening process starts by completing our online adoption application. If you can’t adopt him, but you want to help his chances, please share Marty on social media and/or contact us about sponsoring his adoption fees. Thank you!
