Name: Martin
Age: 6 months
Breed: Aussie
Gender: Male

Martin is a 6 month old, deaf Aussie boy with a small amount of vision impairment–but he doesn’t let any of that slow him down! He’s just about the happiest little guy ever.

He adores people and loves climbing into your lap for snuggles and belly rubs. Martin is very smart and has learned the signs for sit, come, stay, and lay down. He is house trained and crate trained. He’s learning to walk well on the leash and loves going for walks, especially with his foster siblings.

Due to his slight vision impairment, he occasionally gets nervous when he sees movement/objects far away and cannot distinguish what they are. But he loves meeting new people and will snuggle right up against their legs and flop over to get belly rubs immediately. He enjoys adventures and going new places, including trips to the beach, walks downtown, and hanging out having coffee or lunch at outdoor restaurants with his people.

Martin is a little unsure of dogs he doesn’t know upon first meeting, and will bark a little bit until he gets used to them. After that, he just wants to be best friends with them! He absolutely adores playing with his two foster siblings and gives his big foster brother kisses on the nose. As he meets more dogs, he’s getting better at greeting them without barking and will continue to improve with future practice. It would be great for Martin to have a playful, easy-going dog in his future household to “show him the ropes” as he loves to play all the time and he’s much more confident about going new places when his foster siblings are there. He just needs a few minutes to adjust to his new sibling and then he will love them forever!

Martin is the sweetest dog and has already become attached to his foster parents, following them around and snuggling every chance he can get. He is very attuned to his humans and will definitely attach to a new family just as quickly. He is very active and enjoys walking, playing, and going places, but will also snuggle up with his humans in the house. He is also very gentle and great with kids. Someone will be lucky to have this little cuddle bug as a part of their family!

Martin is neutered, UTD on vaccines, and microchipped. He is currently fostered in Raleigh, North Carolina and his adoption fee is $300.
