At the time, she wrote on Instagram: “He’s 11 years old so was turned down a lot when people met him at the shelter because he was ‘too old’ (rude, he’s in his prime) but when I met him I had to ask him take home. He is SO PERFECT and is a just and endless ball of kisses and hugs. Luv u Marco #adoptdontshop.”
