Trigger - ADOPTED

More articles by »
Written by: Bob Guere

Trigger is an adorable ten week old collie mix. The vet said he is healthy and adorable and will mature as a large dog. His story of how he came to marleys is slightly a year jerker. He belonged to a homeless couple in the lake Isabella area.

Recently the area was hit with bad weather and the couple did everything they could to keep trigger safe and warm and healthy (including giving him his first set of shots). They knew they couldn’t provide him with everything he deserved and asked someone to take him and give him the life they couldn’t. So that’s exactly what we plan to do! This pup is happy and playful and cute and just perfect! He deserves nothing but the best!  Adoption application below!
