Oh my where do I start…..let’s start with my name, they call me Marty. I love my name; when called, I respond very quickly as I am curious to see what I can help you with!  I am a young St Bernard mix who was born in April 2016.  My foster family is head over heels in love with me but hey look at me, I am handsome and who wouldn’t fall in love with me at first glance! And beyond these handsome markings I have the lovable gentlemanly approach which will certainly steal your heart. I stare into your eyes and then lean in for a kiss or two!  I also have lots of playful energy and will keep you on your toes all day long!

My foster mom says I am very smart for my age. I know how to sit, lay down and sometimes roll over. She doesn't like it when I jump on people, so we're working on that.  I just want to get your attention because, well, I love people.  I really don’t like the kennel so I need a little coaxing to go in there.  I have to admit I whine a little at first, but I realize that it’s a safe place for me when everyone is gone.  I am not a big chewer but when I don’t burn off enough energy I have been known to relieve stress on things that I shouldn’t.

From foster mom: First let me say how amazed I am Marty, he is such a joy to have around! We are told he is a St Bernard mix but I see very little of that in him. I believe he may also have a mix of Australian Shepherd along with the St Bernard. I anticipate he will not be as big as a typical St Bernard but more the size of a Retriever or Lab.

Marty is very lovable and definitely loves his human! He doesn’t seem to want to hang with kids as much as he does adults therefore he isn’t what I would call the typical family dog. Marty prefers to be the only one getting attention so this might be an issue with younger children (as is the energy level and jumping, he could easily knock a young child down).

Due to his energy level I would recommend a fenced in yard along with daily walks so that he gets plenty of exercise on and off leash. Marty seems to be more of what I would call a “working dog”. He needs a lot of mental stimulation to keep him occupied. Someone experienced with training dogs or willing to take him to dog training classes would be an ideal adopter.

Marty currently lives with 4 other dogs. He seems to pick and choose which dogs he likes and therefore would need to work on proper socializing with other dogs. He has been curious about our resident cat but hasn’t chased her, just sniffs and walks away when told. We are working on potty training; he is doing well but still has some work to do.

Don’t hesitate!  Get that application in today and come meet this handsome young man!
