  • Marvin the dog returns home after 10 years

    Susan and John Dixon adopted Marvin about 10 years ago when their son, Alex, was 8 and daughter Cara was 6. They gave him up for adoption soon after. Recently they got a call from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Control after their name was retrieved on Marvin’s chip after someone dropped him off at the shelter. The family decided to re-adopt Marvin and are now happily living together again.
