Greetings, humans! My name is Martian and I am an out of this world dude who would love to love you! I am a friendly fella who adores other dogs - I would do best in a home with another dog who will be my best furry friend - and enjoys being petted and snuggled by my family. I have a medium energy level: I like a good romp around outside with my doggie pals and would like a fenced yard at my forever home where I can get my zoomies out. I am cat friendly and get along with human kiddos, too, though I should be supervised around young children because I sometimes can be silly and jump up to give hugs. As a young guy, I am learning a lot and would thrive with patient humans who will help me continue to blossom and grow. Potty training is a work in progress and I need some reminders not to mark in the house, and I am working on my leash-walking skills as well. I have learned a couple commands including sit and give paw; I would love a family devoted to my scholarly pursuits and who will take me to training classes so I can continue to work my brain. I am a super sweet boy who would love for you to fill out an adoption application today!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
