Adoptable Pet of the Week: Myrtle and Martin, Hurricane Ida Evacuees

For this week’s Pet of the Week, we’re featuring two adoptable pups, Myrtle and Martin.

Thanks to the good folks at Homeward Trails Adoption Center, this brother-sister duo was recently evacuated from Louisiana ahead of Hurricane Ida.

Although new to Arlington, here’s what they know about Myrtle and Martin so far:

Myrtle and her brother Martin just arrived after being evacuated from Louisiana ahead of Hurricane Ida.

Myrtle can be a bit shy in new situations but warms up quickly. She enjoys the company of other dogs.

Martin is a a friendly guy who enjoys hanging out with other dogs and people.

These two are Weimaraner mixes estimated to be about 1 year old. Myrtle weighs in at 22 pounds, and Martin is 32 pounds.

If you’re interested in adopting this duo or any other dogs or cats heading to Arlington after Hurricane Ida, stop by the Homeward Trails website to learn more. You can also follow them on Facebook for the latest updates.
