Rescuers from Chillicothe, Ohio found an abandoned small dog wandering around Yoctangee Park all alone. The Terrier-mix was one of the many dogs dumped by irresponsible people who were supposed to be their “guardians.” There was something unusual and unbelievable about this pup, though; the dog was covered with permanent marker that read “free” and “good home only.” Fortunately, the pup was soon rescued and on her way to learning what it means to be loved.

The dog, marked as if she was an object rather than a living being, was taken in by the Ross County Humane Society and named Marvella. The staff was shocked and outraged by what had been done to the animal.

“So I usually try to contain myself with my work life and with what I see every single day, but this just tops it off! How are you going to dump your dog, and write FREE all over it in permanent marker!” staff member Brittany May said on Facebook.

Marvella received a thorough bath that managed to remove most of the permanent marker. Her story spread on social media and applications to adopt her quickly started to pour in.

After considering hundreds of potential homes, Ross County Humane Society found “the one.” Marvella is now living with Linette Wrightsel and her family – and she is finally starting to enjoy her life!

 

“Please remember that in any shelter on any given day there are dogs who have been given away as ‘free to good home’ and are awaiting their forever home, just like Marvella,” the organization emphasized while sharing the good news about the pup. “Please support your local animal shelters and adopt, don’t shop.”

While we can’t imagine who could do such a thing to a sweet dog like Marvella, we are so glad she has finally found people who will treat her like the queen she is!

Kill them? I seriously hope you\'re being facetious. Good grief.

Better yet, find them hold them down and write "STUPID" on their forehead with a permanent marker!
