Marty is an endearing but STRONG Dobie boy who came to us from an upstate shelter. Now the honest truth is that he is quite the handful but in the right environment and with the right owner, he could be a really amazing addition to a family. The good news is that Marty LOVES people. He is playful, fun, and full of zest so runners and hikers pay attention! Marty also loves water and takes any opportunity to take a quick dip. He has some obedience training and he is very smart but focus work will need to be worked on so he won't be so distracted when out in public. The bad news is that Marty's excitement gets the best of him sometimes and we can't recommend him for a home with another dog. In the right hands, he may be able to share a home with a female but absolutely no male dogs or cats please. Marty is sweet enough for a home with kids but younger kids would be bowled over by his size and strength so teenagers would be preferable. Marty is not at the rescue in Fillmore, ca unless requested so if you want to meet him then please contact us.
