LI’s Adorable Adoptable Pets: For a Pet-Friendly Pup, Marvin’s Your Man

Now that Adopt-a-Cat Month is over, our Adorable Adoptable Pet feature has gone to the dogs, and first up is Marvin, a deaf purebred boxer from A Home Fur Now Rescue.

Marvin has been living with his foster family for a long time, which surprises the volunteers at A Home Fur Now, since Marvin gets along with all people – adults and kids – as well as animals, including other dogs and cats, which makes him a great fit for all different kinds of families.

He is housetrained, neutered, and up-to-date with all of his routine shots. This spunky boxer would prefer a home with a yard for him to run around in.

Marvin is a smart dog who is particularly special in that he is deaf, but that does not change the fact that he is an adorable and all-around loving dog.  Even though he cannot hear, Marvin is trained and knows exactly what is expected of him in the house and around children, and he would love to meet his forever family to show off his great behavior and adorable mug.

If you are interested in adopting Marvin, contact A Home Fur Now via email or through their Facebook page here.

A Home Fur Now is a not-for-profit rescue that relies solely on foster homes to care for their animals.  Their mission is to save the strays, throwaways, and shelter animals and to improve their lives through medical care, spaying and neutering, and finding families that would be compatible with these pets.
