From Marshmellow's Mom, "His gentle demeanor drew us in. It is hard to imagine the rough life he once experienced, leaving him scarred and broken, did not affect his personality negatively."
From Marshmellow's new mom:
Rescue Me Tampa - Shelter Dogs comes up on my Facebook news feed and I often follow certain dogs that really tug at my heart strings. So last weekend, I went to see one of those very dogs, but when I went looking for her, the shelter staff told me she had been adopted. I was thrilled for her and since I was there, decided to walk through the kennels. That is where we saw Marshmellow leaning on the side of the kennel door hoping that someone would stop. He looked a little rough - he is missing one ear and has some scars on his face and neck and he has a broken tail that has healed crooked.
The poor boy also has hip dysplagia. Needless to say, like many other dogs that end up at the shelter, my daughter and I thought this boy had not been treated well and loved like he should be. We took him out for a meet and greet and the volunteer talked about how sweet and gentle he was. We played ball with him and pet him for a bit. At that time, another volunteer came to talk to us. She told us Marshmellow was her favorite and she stopped to see him each day that she was there. Sure enough, he seemed to recognize her and plopped down on her lap. Marshmellow's gentle demeanor drew us in. It is hard to imagine the rough life he once experienced, leaving him scarred and broken, did not affect his personality negatively.
Thank you FoHCAS for assisting.
Update from his Mom:
Just wanted to let you know that Marshmellow started his heartworm treatment on Monday. Poor boy has been a bit uncomfortable these last few days. After refusing to eat, he finally ate a full breakfast this morning. Hopefully, the next few weeks will go quickly for us and he will be feeling better and enjoying the luxuries of life. I am attaching a picture from the day before his treatment began (please see photos of Marshmellow with tennis ball).
We just adore him.
