Note about the breed: The indicated breed is our best guess estimate based on visual characteristics, but without a DNA test, we cannot guarantee its accuracy. However, mixed-breed dogs, lovingly known as mutts, encompass a wonderful variety of traits and are often some of the most cherished and lovable companions.


Marty McFly will capture your heart at every turn! We have no idea why his previous owners chose not to reclaim him or perhaps could not reclaim him from a high-euthanasia shelter because he is PERFECT! But Marty is only looking ahead to the bright future in front of him.

No need for a DeLorean and a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity to drive Marty to his future—just provide a safe and loving home because he’s easy to please! Marty adapts quickly and easily to new situations and will make you feel like you’ve been his mom or dad from the first day you meet him.

Marty loves to snuggle up against you on the couch, be involved in your activities, or sometimes, he can be a little independent, choosing to sun himself a few more minutes before coming inside. He is house-trained, well-mannered, and does well on a leash.

Fostered with dogs of all ages and sizes, Marty tolerates obnoxious puppy antics and grumpy Frenchie/bulldog grumbles. He just wants to keep the peace and find a way to be close to you without “rocking” the boat with his pack members.

His energy level is medium to “chill.” Marty can just hang out or be up for a walk or play in the yard with other pups. He gets along great with other pets, including cats, but he LOVES humans so much that he would be just as happy with someone who has lots of time and love for him. He probably wouldn’t mind being the only child as long as he wasn’t stuck home alone all day without friends.

Marty is also VERY quiet so far. His foster mom doesn’t know what his bark sounds like yet, but it has only been 10 days. Not a peep out of Marty McFly yet!

If you want an ADORABLE dog with soulful eyes that gaze into yours but aren’t in the mood for puppy antics or a ton of training, Marty McFly might be perfect for you! He’s mature, smart, eager to please, and constantly striking an adorable pose if you want to set up an Instagram page!
