Volunteer of the Month Pet Pick

Marmaduke  is just a big goofy boy who came to us as a stray and unfortunately his people never tried to find him. He's a 2 year old Great Dane / Border Collie mix who needs someone who is willing to continue to work on his manners. Who could resist that face and those ears?!
