Marty was the cause of the slight loss in all accounts. The lost puppy was found by a Richardson police officer wandering the street in the middle of the night.
“He was very frosted, especially on the back, face, chest and ears,” said Mary Ravel of Richardson’s Animal Services. “He had hair loss along his back and was infested with fleas. He had curled claws on his legs.”
According to Lovell, a scan of the dog’s microchip in the shelter revealed that he was not only holding the microchip, but was previously detained, and was warned to fix all of these issues. ..
“I contacted the owner who didn’t want the dog back. He said he was 16 years old and had him because he was a puppy. The dog was completely deaf and lived for the rest of his life. I was pretty timid to take care of us because I knew only the garden I was in, “Ravel said.
The shelter staff shaved him, gave him a good bath and a fluffy bed, and prepared Marty for his eternal home.
“The staff blew up a social media page with him wearing a cute little bandana and sweater. He caught the eye of a lovely woman who was as passionate about adopting dogs as he was.” Said.
The rest was history. They said Marty was known for his “moody face at rest,” but they know they’re grateful that the little guy has a place to call home.
