Famous Fido Rescue


Name:Marty Kryptonite

Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier-mix



Canine Personality: loving, adorable

Marty Kryptonite is an adorable, looking for a loving guardian.

Marty was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control. Sadly, this dog has a neurological problem which causes him to twirl in circles. He wants to be a lapdog, but he frightens easily so he sometimes nips in defense.

His neurologist says Marty is a healthy dog, however his brain doesn’t always process the information that his eyes see. There is no cure, just patience, training and love.

He does absolutely fine in a home with cats, he just ignores them, however other dogs frighten him.
