From Rags to Riches

Meet Addie, a death row survivor, and Enrique, the trainer who saved her.


Enrique Marquez knew from a young age that he wanted to work with dogs.

“I found out early in life that I had a deep connection with dogs,” says Enrique. “When I was seven we got our first dog, Dulcinea, but sadly we had to rehome her due to aggressiveness.”

Enrique wasn’t satisfied with his parent’s reasoning that ‘bad dogs never change.’ Since then, he has committed himself to helping dogs and their families regain control over their relationship, and not feel forced to have a dog rehomed or put down due to aggression. 

This dedication led Enrique to found DogWorx, a last-stop dog obedience training, behavior modification and aggression training business that serves families in Savannah, Hilton Head and Charleston.
