Meet Marvin! Marvin is approximately 3-4 years old and is a pit bull terrier mix.
Marvin was a stray that came to our wonderful foster mom’s house on 2/1/12. He had a rope tied around his neck. He was in really bad shape when he found our foster mom and was extremely skinny and had several old wounds on his neck. His coat was in such bad shape that his black hair had turned orange from being left outside with no shelter. Marvin has been receiving lots of love and good care in his foster home. He is healed and healthy now.
He does well with most dogs and he really enjoys all the attention he can get. He is great with his foster mom’s child. Marvin is microchipped, neutered, up to date on all vaccines and heartworm negative. He is house crated and crate trained. While Marvin is in a wonderful foster home, he very much would love a home of his own, where he will be spoiled rotten, as he should be. Please consider adding him to your family, and giving him a loving home.
