Marco's Story...
To know our little Marco is to love him, and you can bet you will fall in love with him instantly! Marco is a 1 1/2 year old little hound mix that came to us from down south in search of a great new life. Marco was a stray and whoever let this little guy go just doesn't know what they are missing. Marco is the sweetest, most lovable little guy and although he is completely blind, you would never know it by looking at him. Marco is truly amazing. Our veterinarian evaluated his eyesight situation and she was astounded at his incredible sense of smell and his unbelievable memory. Marco compensates for his lack of vision by memorizing his surroundings, and following scents. Marco can explore our giant exercise yard without bumping into anything. He can take a walk on our path through the woods and navigate his way perfectly. Marco is just so smart, and is also so loving, outgoing, super friendly and very well behaved too. Marco just loves everyone he meets. He just loves all of the new friends he has made and looks forward to getting walks and lots of attention every day. Marco seems to like other dogs but is playful with them, so would need to go to a home with a dog of similar energy. He would do best with no cats, but he would do great in any loving home with a caring family that would welcome him and love him forever! 2/4/13 File#22260

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marco, a Forked River Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Forked River, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Forked River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Forked River already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Forked River breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Forked River paves the way for another one to be saved.
