Pet of the Week – Martin

Did I hear you right? I am not sure if my ears are playing tricks on me but I think I heard you say you’re looking for a diamond in the ruff.

Well, I fit that bill. I may be a little rough around the edges but I sure do have a heart of gold. My name is Martin and I am an 8-year-old neutered Chihuahua.

If I heard correctly and you are looking for a forever friend, please come check me out. My adoption fee is $35 and includes vaccinations, microchip and a free veterinary examination.

I’ll keep an ear out for you at the shelter at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. Just ask for me by name or my identification number A1569733. For more information, call (619) 767-2675 or
