Meet Marlin, he is an Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler Mix that is 2 years old. Marlin has the traditional blue heeler fur with the primary tri-color and dark ears. He is a medium sized dog weighing around 47 lbs. Marlin is very shy at first, running away from the toys, but after a few minutes he is as friendly as can be.

Marlin is great with other dogs. Due to his shyness, he is a little hesitant on a leash. Head to the Hamburg PetSmart now to adopt Marlin!

The Lexington Humane Society has two adoption locations, Old Frankfort Pike (main location) and the Hamburg PetSmart. Hamburg Journal’s Pet of the Month is available for adoption at the Hamburg PetSmart location. Hurry over and meet your next furry family member.
