Martie is available for adoption
Sponsored by Roz B. In honour of Jordan Y’s birthday
Martie is a 14 year old male mixed breed who weighs about 18lbs.
Martie is fine with other dogs and coexists well with them. He prefers to be left alone and he doesn’t bother much with other animals. He would do well in a home with or without other calm pets.
He is a calm and mostly quiet dog. He enjoys napping on the couch or on one of his dog beds, and taking short walks around the kitchen.
He is mostly house trained but does have the occasional accident, and is a medium-high shedding dog. He prefers his freedom and does not like being crated.
He does experience limited mobility due to a leg deformity and arthritis. He walks with a limp and not very fast, but he still enjoys his short outings to explore. Stairs are very difficult for him, so he would be looking for a one level home, or a home where his people could help him (carry) up and down stairs.
He is not overly affectionate and will walk away once he has had enough attention. He is independent yet also likes to be near his people. Because of his age and his ability to be a little grumpy sometimes, a home without children is required. He is looking for family or person that has patience and understanding and who will be respectful of his needs and wants.
He is a very sweet boy that is just looking for someone to love him!
