Facts about MARTY

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Marty is a two year old, male Chihuahua mix that weighs around 12 pounds. He was listed at the Animal Shelter as rescue only because he was SO scared that he would snap at everyone. He is a super cute guy, but he was either teased quite a bit or spoiled by his previous owner. I have been able to get him to trust me in a short amount of time, but he is still "Cujo" to others right now. He will sit on the sofa with me and paw at my hand so that I will let him in my lap. Then he paws at my hand for me to pet him and love on him. He is just a cutie pie once you get past that front he puts on to scare people away. Marty is current on his shots, has been de-wormed, neutered and tested negative for heartworms. The right family for Marty would be one without small children and without lots of wild activity. An older couple that are Chihuahua savvy would be his ideal home. He needs to trust first and then he can be taught that other people are really very friendly. Please let us know if you think you fit the bill for this little devilish boy.

In the picture where he is sitting on the steps, he is sad because I made him "sit" for the camera, so he made his decision that he was NOT going to look at me so that I could take his picture. Yes he is spoiled.

About Coastal Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of people that work full time at "normal" jobs, but we also feel in our hearts that we want to make a difference. Each of us have multiple pets and we just want to share our love with the pets that other people discard for one reason or another. We want to show that abandoned, lost or hurt dog that there is still love in the world and we can find it for them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do most of our adoptions on line, but do attend Petsmart on Saturdays. Not all of our pets are ready to come to Petsmart so even if our pets are not there, we will be there to take applications or to show you our book of pets that are available.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is similar to other Rescue groups. You will need to fill out an adoption application, provide a vet reference and tell us a little about yourself and why you want to adopt a rescue dog. Our adoption fees are $200 which includes all age appropriate vaccines, heartworm testing/heartworm free, wormings and spay or neutering of the dog. Senior dog adoption fees may be waived depending on the age and health of the dog.
