My name is Marty! I am an approximately 2 year-old male Catahoula-pit mix and people rave about how cute I am.  I am a friendly, energetic dog seeking a family with no other pets and  no small children.  I love going for walks and playing, but also have a calm, snuggly side.  I have been at Speranza since January of 2017 and would love to find a family of my own soon.


I was saved by Speranza from a high-kill shelter in New York. I was seized in some sort of neglect case, but not many details are known.  I have really calmed down and am enjoying life on the farm for now!

Check out my report card!

I am very, very food and toy motivated.  Although I only know how to sit right now, I will learn quickly if you are willing to teach me.  I walk nicely on a leash, but do pull strongly when I am excited.  I am getting better, but will need to be on a regular potty scheduled until I ace crate training.  You can see my complete report card here.
