Marty, a Great Pyrenees, was found running in the fields and had to be shaved to remove the dangerous foxtails and mats in his long, thick coat. His fur will grow back, but in the meanwhile, Marty just wants to be loved and hang out with people. He’d sit on your lap if you let him. Sensitive, quiet and calm, he gets along well with other dogs, and he is crate trained and leash trained. People can meet Marty at PetSmart, 2477 N. Naglee Road, between 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. To learn more, call People for Pets at 933-6274 or email email@example.com.
