Martin Is the Sweetest Fellow You’ll Find
10-year old, large, black and tan, male German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: Yes
Good with children: Unknown
Good with cats: Unknown
This fellow is the bomb! As soon as he arrived at the rescue from Maricopa County Animal Care
and Control, the volunteers were all fawning over him. He is as sweet as can be. This guy is such
a lover boy! He just eats up the attention.
We don’t know much about Martin’s history, but we think it may not have been pleasant. We
suspect that Martin has been debarked, which we definitely DO NOT recommend. But it doesn’t
seem to affect this guy’s sweet nature and gentle soul.
As a senior, Martin's hips are not so great, but we are hoping the proper medication and well-
balanced diet and activity will help his mobility. We have also learned that Martin is a resource
guarder, so he will need to be fed separately. Otherwise, this guy is about as easy as you can
get. While we don’t know for sure that he’s good with children, we suspect he’d be fine with
gentle kids. He walks well on a leash and really, he just wants to be loved. That’s certainly not
too much ask, right?
If you can give Martin a loving, indoor home, please fill out our
to get the
approval process started. We will only schedule meet and greets with an approved application.
All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Many
juggle family and full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. Please be patient, as
sometimes it takes up to 5 days to process an application.
