ABOUT ME: Hi! I'm Marlin AKA The Marlin Man. My foster mom says I'm a sweet, sensitive soul. I came to the SPCA of Texas in mid-December as a stray, so the shelter staff don't know much about my background. I was very overwhelmed when I came to the shelter, so I went to live with my foster mom to help me relax. I have opened up and become a very snuggly boy. Couches and beds are my favorite! I also love to give kisses. Put in an application to meet me!

DREAM HOME: I would love a calm, quiet home where I can take my time getting to know people and the new house. New situations can be scary! My leash-walking skills are a work in progress, so I will require a home with a securely-fenced yard. No apartments please!

KIDS: Older kids (15+) in the home could be okay, but an adults-only home would be best. Little ones are too much for me!

DOGS: I get along great with my furry foster brother and sisters! A calm, confident dog would be best for me.

CATS: One of my furry foster sisters is a cat and I don't have any problems with her at all!
