My Story

Date into Rescue: 3/4/2018

Reason for being in rescue: Martin was pulled from a shelter in KY. He was surrendered to the shelter as part of a hoarding case.

Special Needs: Senior- mouth infection and bone loss in jaws. Cataracts

What kind of home would be best for me: Martin can be shy at first, but really just wants a lap to sit with. He's had a hard life in his first 10 years and is looking for a quiet home where he can sit with his owners. Martin will be a great pet for a retiree looking for a companion.

What is my personality like: Martin is a gentle old man that needs a calm quiet place to retire.  He seems a little unsure of people at first but a gentle hand goes a long way.  He loves to have his back scratched.  Martin is just a quiet guy that deserves some TLC because he has had a rough life up to this point, being found as a stray.  He walks fine on a leash but prefers to curl up in the most comfortable place he can find and snooze away.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy, but friendly.

Tips and Tidbits: Martin has cataracts that impair his vision. He also has some bone loss in his jaws. He needs a quiet home and softened food.

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
