Pet of the Week 

Hello, I'm Marty and I'm a young Beagle/Terrier mix that was rescued along with some other pals of mine. I'm a friendly little guy and would like a forever home with a family that loves little characters like me. I have a sweet personality and I can't wait to share it with you. I like other dogs, but if you could bring in your furry friend to meet me first, that would be great. I will need a fenced in yard, however, so I don't go roaming. Read more about me here.
