Einstein (Grayson) is doing great at 10 months. He is taking a break from obedience training to try agility and having lots of fun. He brings great joy to us and loves everybody!

I adopted Sahara (now Remington) a little over a week ago. She is doing awesome. She is getting along with our other dogs like she has been there for years and is loving running around the farm and woods. Doing very well on house training as well. Thanks for taking her in and getting her to me.

We just adopted Cassie. Her new name is Piper. We are absolutely in love with this little girl. She is just about potty trained, knows how to sit, shake, come, spin and lay down in just a short weeks time. She is curious, fearless, courious, playful and loves to snuggle. Dogs From Mars did a wonderful job in giving my little girl a great start on life. Thank you! Joannie Millar

I adopted brady, now named dale, may 17th 2013. It has been a great year and a half with him. I have grown up with many dogs and none have come close to dale's personality. He has so much love and soul. I just had my first baby this September and he watches her like a hawk. He literally puts his arm around me when im sad. Thank you for my best friend

Hello! @Jen and Ben- We adopted Renley, formerly Logan, from a litter of 11 Border Collie/Australian Shepherd puppies and would LOVE to get together! How do we get in touch? M.A.R.S, is this something you could help with? We are located in the Chicagoland area.
Message From: Christine September 5, 2014
Hi! We adopted Rocky (formerly known as Colby) in April of this year. We thought he was possibly a Boxer mix but we weren't sure, so we did a DNA kit. It turns out that Rocky is American Staffordshire Terrier mixed with Akita, Giant Schnauzer, and lab! We got a kick out of this result and it's fun to tell people our story. He is the sweetest dog on earth, and just loves to give kisses. Just wanted to let anyone who adopted any of his brothers/sisters (I believe their names all started with C) what his DNA showed! We just love him to death. Thank you!

Hi there - we adopted a border collie/australian shepherd mix on May 31st (formerly known as Lizzy) from a littler of 11 pups and we would love to get her brothers and sisters together in the future. Please contact me if you are interested.
Message From: Martha June 29, 2014
I could not have imagined a better puppy to welcome into my life. Kodak (Cassie) was from a litter of 10 boxer border collies, and she is so wonderful, i wish i could've brought the whole litter home! Would highly recommend MARS.
Message From: Dana May 23, 2014
I adopted a puppy last year from MARS. He is a brittany spaniel mix. I want to see what his brothers and sisters look like. His name was originally Adam now it Crosby. If someone could get back to me. He is absolutely an awesome dog!
Message From: Allie April 24, 2014
We adopted Frankie (Previously Nolan) at the April 5th adoption event. Every day since then has been a joy! He felt right at home the next day, he adores his new mom (me) but sees Dad as a chew toy/play mate right now, but he is learning! He is so smart, he is already potty trained (whines at the front door!), and I can proudly say he knows sit, stay, wait, speak, and down all before 3 months old. We adore him even though he can be a trickster. :) Thank you so much for all you do!
Message From: Dee W April 10, 2014
We adopted Otto Nov. 26 2013.. He has been pure joy! Potty trained in 1 week and is extremely smart.. thank you.. Otto is ready for a friend .. we will be seeing you soon for another dog... thanks again.

I met Roxy (formally Breanna) at an event in Buffalo Grove a month ago now. I went there with the intention to meet one of the Moms of the recently rescued litters but they weren't they as they were recovering from getting spayed. I had NO plans or desire to adopt a puppy but when Roxy came out of her crate and clumsily climbed into my lap, laying her head down on my shoulder, I was immediately won over! Roxy has been with me for a month now and she has made SO many friends in the neighborhood, human and canine alike. She is part of my little family now which includes her and my 2 rescue cats, Sammy and Dean. She is receiving more love than she could possibly handle and she gives it back with every puppy kiss she lays on me. Thank you for walking me through what I needed to take Roxy home with me that night. I couldn't have done it without your help and thank you for bringing Roxy and me together. We make a good duo and I'm sure that she will soon be besties with Sammy and Dean as well. :-)

We adopted Gracie (new name Ivy) on Saturday. We couldn't be happier. She is the sweetest puppy! Thanks you M.A.R.S. for always answering my questions along the way and keeping in contact with us as the big day approached. This was our first adoption from a rescue shelter. It was pleasurable experience. You are all wonderful for what you do!

Hi guys! Sending a shout out from Indiana! We adopted Calvin (I believe was his name), a Jack Russell mix about a year ago. He is the love of our lives, weighing in at a whopping 3.5lbs. His name is Watson now, and he loves his four-legged sister Bella, as well.

She's been a perfect little lady,well.. almost ; ) only two accidents, she slept all night without a whimper. She's cute, sweet, and her name means: little girl in Hebrew! Thank you so much for finding her for our family, we simply.. love her!
Message From: Heather August 14, 2013
We completed our family by adding Zena, now named Lucy, to our family on Sunday Aug. 11th. Lucy has been a complete sweetheart and really adjusted to our family perfectly. She has two older siblings Sox and Maggie that she really has clicked with and she looks to them for proper behavior in our house. She is always by myself, my husband's, or our dog Sox's side and is just a constant tail wagging. Our dogs are adjusting to each other quicker than I could imagine! Thank you M.A.R.S. for taking such great care of Lucy before we got her and helping us complete our family!

Thank you guys so much! We adopted "Minnie" (Now "Harmony") in November 2012, and she is the sweetest most amazing girl. She looks like a purebred GSD but a portion of the size (30lbs), and is the neediest snuggliest puppy ever. :) I am so thankful for you guys and your great service to my puppy and my home.

Hi MARS, Just wanted to let you know that Max (Blizzard-Thanksgiving weekend 2012) and Abby (Savanah - December 2011) have bonded nicely with each other and out other dog Daisy. They love playing and getting into mischief! Max is HUGE -vet thinks he'll be about 120 lbs. We prefer to call it a whole lot of love. Abby caters to him and has become quite the "mama" to him too! Thank you MARS for bringing us our family members!
