There's no denying that Marvin is about as handsome as they come, look at that big smooshy face! Marvin is a Big ham, around 7 - 8 years old,  who loves belly rubs and meeting new friends everywhere he goes. If you meet Marvin, he will likely sit on your feet to prevent you from walking away as he would prefer you stay and pet him for all of eternity.

Marvin's life wasn't always belly rubs and chicken snacks, he was found by KCK animal control severely emaciated, absolutely skin and bone. He had sores all over his ears from fly strikes and was heartworm positive. 

But Marvin is a trooper, he butt wiggled his way through all of his medical treatment and is now a whopping 75 lbs of love and cuddles. Unfortunately, He's still been waiting for a forever home for about 3 years!

Marvin loves toys and loves to burrow in his soft blankets. He will do just about anything for a snack and really loves to go for walks.

Marvin gets along well with dogs around his size as long as they are pretty respectful, he doesn't appreciate dogs that like to jump all over him right off the bat. 

Marvin is potty trained from what we can tell as he keeps his room here at the shelter very clean!

We hope Marvin can find his forever home soon, he's been waiting so long and is so very deserving!
