For more than five years, Marley the dog was chained up in a backyard without proper food or clean water. His owner would hit him on the head for getting "too excited," and the only word that he understood was "no"—he didn't even recognize his own name. But as this new PETA video ( released today shows, that all changed when he was given to PETA: He was treated for parasites and malnutrition and adopted into a loving new home.

Now, he has a warm couch to sleep on, a doggie friend named Kyah to play with, and all the snuggles he wants. "I really, really liked his little attitude that he had and the spirit that he had that wasn't going to be broken," says Michael Moss, his adopter. "He's got toys, bones, treats, and Kyah—and a big backyard he can play in .… That's all I really want. I just want him to be happy."

More information about PETA's work to help dogs and cats is available here (, and more photos of Marley are available on PETA's blog (
