Martin - not blind!


Update October 2023

Meet Martin, the perfect little weirdo you've been looking for! Martin is a wonderfully funny and goofy guy who wants nothing more than to be your snuggle bug.

Martin loves to go on walks, ride in the car, and accompany you anywhere you will take him. He is also very well behaved when left alone at home and is content to snuggle and nap all day. Íf you work from home don't be surprised if he wants to follow and sleep at your feet! He is the perfect office assistant.

Martin is a very chill guy who just loves to be loved! He is very tolerant of everything, confident, and looking for the perfect laid-back home to let him thrive.

Martin first came to us after his owner suddenly passed away. At the time he was blind due to cataracts, but has since had cataract removal surgery and can now see just fine!. Because of his surgery he will require routine follow-up with an ophthalmologist every 6-12 months.

Martin is also diabetic but is very well regulated and is a champion for his insulin injections. You could not ask for a more perfect gentleman.

How can you say no to this perfect man's smile?
Martin is such an amazing boy! He had cataract surgery a few weeks ago and is no longer blind! He has been taking full advantage of his new sight and is such a curious and confident explorer. He is such an easy-going couch potato who loves to snuggle. He is very devoted to his people and just wants to be wherever you are.

His diabetes is currently well-regulated and he is such a perfect gentleman for his daily meds. He has been through so much and is such a survivor. He has the most unique smile, and is hoping you have room in your heart for a goofy boy like him!
