Meet Marlin—everyone’s favorite schnoodle (schnauzer/poodle). Sutherland New York associate Maria Eberle, and her husband George, adopted Marlin four years ago from a local animal shelter. The shelter claimed that Marlin was found on the mean streets and may have been a former gang member. However, he now demonstrates a sophisticated demeanor and enjoys eating filet mignon, wearing neckties, and taking long, leisurely Sunday strolls in Central Park. Marlin has a keen sense for couture fashion and will only chew organic, handmade, dog toys. Strangers often comment on his good looks and charm, only to find out, when they get too close, that he still retains many of the survival skills of his former gang days—earning him the additional nickname “Random Acts of Violence.”
Marlin spends most days at home with his little sister Alexa, who was born last July. Although Marlin was not initially comfortable with sharing the spotlight with Alexa, he now totally ignores her and continues to grab the center of attention.
