T&D Dog of the Week: Marin


Great news! Almost ALL of the dogs we have featured on the show have been adopted! Thanks to everyone who has pitched in, shared bios and adopted these lovable pups! Only one dog of the week remains, and her name is Marin. Honestly, I love giant horse sized dogs, and if was able to be around other dogs I would have adopted her yesterday. The good news is...she's great with kids. Check out her info...

Marin is a big hunk of Mastiff/Shepard mix! She is 97 lbs and 5 years old.  Marin originally came from Texas, where she lived her first 4 years with a military family who had to rehome her when they were deployed overseas. Now the people who took her in are making a big move, too, and can’t take her along so we’re working to find her a new home-hopefully this time forever!

Marin loves her people! AND she lived in harmony with a 5 and 7 year old, so she’s good with kiddos.  That said, she does need to go to a home with no other animals. She’s nervous about most other dogs, so she’d definitely be more comfortable being an only dog. We don’t know if she’s ever been around cats before, but we do know she once killed a chicken (oops!) so that tells us she has a pretty high prey drive and is not to be trusted with cats.

She’s a bit of an escape artist and dug under a gap in her owners’ fence three different times, so she’ll need to be supervised if she’s in the yard, or taken on leashed walks instead. Her favorite thing to do is RUN, so having a secured fenced yard (with supervision, of course!) would be ideal for her. She has a stuffed toy that came with her from her original home that she loves very much. It will go home with her. She’s affectionate, playful, friendly with visitors, and even though she’s nearly 100 lbs, she thinks of herself as a lap dog! She know sit, down, come, stay, wait and off. Does Marin sound like the dog for you? If so, please fill out the questionnaire and someone from Oregon Humane will call to talk more about her.
