Adoption Pending!
9 years

Hi there! I'm Marty, a very sweet little guy who is so happy to have a second chance! My life before coming to Young at Heart was an isolated one. I have a very hard time adjusting to new friends, both two- and four-legged, but live successfully with my foster parents and their dog. My foster home is working hard to help me learn that the world can be a kind place, and I am working with a dog trainer as well, but it will take a very special someone to help me continue this education once I'm in a new home. I am fearful of new people and new dogs, so a home that has experience with dogs is a must. I am an adorable pom/long-haired chihuahua mix. Like many little dogs, I know what I want out of life and can be a bit bossy about it, so a home without kids is a must for me as well. I would be absolutely fine with another laid back dog, and I'm totally okay with kitties. When I want attention, I'll nudge you and wiggle across your lap. I also like to sit under your desk at your feet when you're working or sit beside you on the couch. I'd love to find a home of my own, one that likes to love on and work with an underdog like me. I need a special someone with time and patience, lots of routine, and a very quiet home. I know that's a tall order, but I know my special someone is out there! Is it you?
