Martin was found wandering the cold streets of Cleveland in a fairly desolate neighborhood. He was filthy and seemingly out on the streets for awhile. A Good Samaritan picked him up and got him scanned for a chip but there was no identification found. He was reported to the local shelters as a found dog and held for three days and then we agreed to take him (and will continue to seek out an owner if we can). Martin is a young Labrador Mix and has a very typical Labrador personality. He is great with other dogs, he’s very energetic and loves to play. He is a big boy and expected to keep growing. Martin will be moving to a foster home so we can get to know him better for placing him.

Martin is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.


Martin will be moving to a foster home and we will provide a detailed report as we get to know him.

We are not a traditional shelter, we are a cage-free facility. All dogs are temperament tested and must get along with other dogs to stay here. Appointments must be made in advance to meet our Secondhand Mutts. Please call 216-664-9660 or email to set up a time. We are closed on Sundays. We prefer to adopt to local families but will consider long distance adoptions.

Dog Adoption Fee $200
