Marvel is only a puppy but has already had a lot to contend with in his early life. He was found lying in some bushes by two passers by who managed to get him to the vet. It is most likely he had been hit by a car, leaving him unable to stand and in a great deal of pain. Unfortunately, the vet did not complete a full assessment of Marvel’s situation and left him with no pain killers and assured his rescuers that he would walk in two weeks. Naturally, our wonderful partner shelter in Greece investigated further and took Marvel for x-rays at their trusted vet practice. Discovering he needed surgery, he was sent to Athens and his pelvis was operated on with enough urgency.

Marvel is thankfully on his way to a making a good recovery, he will need further x rays in October to check on his recovery but this can be done once he is in the UK. Any prospective adopters should consider that Marvel will need to build up his muscle mass and get used to using his legs properly again. He may also suffer some arthritis in the future but this is a far cry from the future he was destined for. The future is certainly bright for Marvel, who we plan on bringing to the UK as soon as possible.

Regardless of everything he has been through, he continually shows acceptance and ambition to befriend everyone he meets – no one can ignore the smile that is permanently fixed to his face! Due to much of his time being in the clinic awaiting recovery, Marvel has a lot to discover about the world around him. But, he is bound to be a brilliant little learner with his dedication to please and his love of all things tasty! He adores it when the shelter volunteers visit, eagerly accepting all of the cuddles they have to give and listening to them talk to him.

Marvel has not been tested with cats or children so we will be watching how his personality develops and assessing his most suitable home on a case by case basis.

Regardless of his tough beginning, Marvel is a normal pup with a lot of love to give. A home where he can discover and play at his hearts content is what he deserves the most.

Please note, Marvel will not be ready to travel until at least mid October and we are still awaiting a transport date. Marvel would love to go straight to an adoptive home but we are also considering suitable foster homes within the UK, so please get in touch should you be interested in giving Marvel the home & love he thoroughly deserves!
