Cost to adopt all Maranatha Farm dogs (except seniors) is $100, full refundable anytime during the animal’s lifetime, and it includes the spay or neuter, vaccinations, an Easy Walk harness, 6-month supply of heartworm prevention and Lifetime Free Vacation Boarding at Maranatha Farm.

“Sephora” was born in January and now weighs about 20 lbs.  When she was eight weeks old she was dumped in the driveway at Maranatha Farm during a rain shower, along with her two sisters.  Now a spayed female, she is learning to be housetrained and she gets along very well with other dogs.  Gentle with children, “Sephora” is smart and eager to please.

“Milo” is a playful neutered male about two years old.  This high energy boy loves to run and plays with other dogs all day.  He needs a fenced yard and at least one other dog for companionship.  “Milo” is very good with children but may be too rambunctious for toddlers. 

“Keebler” came to us with 20 other Chihuahuas when police cleared out a hoarding situation in Marion County where 179 Chihuahuas were being kept inside a house.  “Keebler” was suffering from malnutrition and neglect, and was gravely ill.   Dr. Richard Bink of Coastal Veterinary Clinic diagnosed “Keebler” with with Granulomatous Meningoencephalitis (GME) an inflammation of the brain stem. Though the prognosis was very poor, Dr. Bink treated “Keebler” and saved him.  Today “Keebler” is sleek and healthy.  He is neutered, and we believe he is about four years old.  He is a little high stung, and would be happiest in a quiet household.

“City Girl” is a spayed female Pit Bull mix about two years old.  “City Girl” likes other dogs and is very playful.  Though active all day, she loves a sweet cuddle-up on the couch in the evening.  She is well housetrained and obedient.  Her blue color is highly prized, so “City Girl” may never be left out-of-doors unattended, and she may not be taken to public dog parks where she might be blamed for any fuss.  “City Girl” is gentle and very affectionate. 

“Cheri” is a senior Min Pin.  (She doesn’t tell her age but we suspect she is around 10.)  “Cheri” is offered under our Seniors for Seniors Program, wherein a retired adopter pays no adoption fee and Maranatha Farm continues to provide all medical needs for the dog for the rest of it’s lifetime.  “Cheri” is cheerful and undemanding.  She is housetrained and paper-trained, and does not get into things when left alone.  (The photo of “Cherie” was taken by Patty Gosdin.)
