VT Dog Rescue is a non-profit canine rescue focused on saving the Underdog. The sweet dogs who are passed over day after day simply because they are not perfect. Who is an underdog?- older dogs who are wise and love to snuggle- tri-pawed dogs who are happily enjoying life with 3 legs- shy dogs who need a little extra love to help them build confidence - dogs who may limp or have a physical limitation that humans see as a flaw, but they accept with dignity - dogs who are missing an eye and have adapted to navigate their world The Underdogs have, against all odds, retained their ability to be loyal and trusting companions who love us unconditionally. We believe the Underdogs, just like other shelter dogs, deserve to be rescued and placed in loving, responsible homes where they can shine.
Mardi is a stray pup from AL who was lucky enough to find his way to an amazing rescue. His estimated date of birth is 1/15/23 and he weighs about 12 lbs. We do not know his breed without a DNA test, but we had to select a breed to share his information in this website. He appears to be a small breed mix and we expect him to reach 35-40 lbs as an adult.
Mardi is a playful and happy puppy who enjoys being held and loved. He is sharing his foster home with other dogs and thoroughly enjoys himself. He's met cats and is also good with them. It's safe to say that Mardi loves everyone he meets.
This adorable puppy is young so he's working on his housebreaking and crate training skills. We highly recommend training classes for all of our dogs to get everyone off to a great start. Training recommendations are available.
