Shedd Aquarium star: A dog?
It already highlights some of the most amazing sea and land animals and now the Shedd Aquarium is adding another mammal to it’s one world show: The Dog.
Marlin, a two year old lab mix, was adopted by the Shedd in December from Chicago Canine Rescue. He is now in training to become one of the shows beloved stars.
Marlin will join Dori, Coral and Bruce, the trio which launched the Shedd’s dog program just one year ago.
All four were rescued from local shelters. Three were surrendered by owners and Bruce they believe was used in dog fighting.
Today they are living in the lap of doggie luxury.
On any given day these three pups warm up the crowds at the show and in warmer weather, welcome visitors as they enter.
The dogs are trained in the basics as well as socialization and getting comfortable in the lime light.
