Marty was adopted in February of 2012. Marty's new owners say: "We adopted Marty four weeks ago and if feels like he's been in our family forever. He is the sweetest dog, he loves to play outside and with my 3-year-old daughter. He is very protective of us, too. Thank you so much for letting us have him."
