"URGENT" Rescue Needed Marmaduke is a large, squishy-faced fella with the cutest lips and cheeks around! House trained, loves children, cats and gentle dogs that won't bite his face.

We found Mr. Marmaduke laying in the ditch, he's been hit by a car and was laying there all alone, unable to get up or walk. We carefully loaded him in to our van and took him straight to the vet. He was found to have a fractured pelvis along with abrasions and road rash all around his legs and underside.

For the following weeks as he healed, his shelter friends carefully used a towel to create a sling for his back end so that he could walk outside to potty. We watched over him, tended his wounds and helped him along until his body was fully healed.

Marmaduke is a little bit weird from time to time (aren't we all?). He is fearful of some people and uncomfortable with certain clothing items being on his human friends such as gloves and some hats. We are not sure what caused his odd discomfort for Marmi but we know that he likes most people that he meets. Because he has some fears, we believe he needs a forever home without small children as we feel like it would be super uncomfortable for all involved.

Marmaduke does have many wonderful qualities besides his darling squishy face.He is SO FUN to give stuffy toys to! He celebrates each one with great glee and happily plays with them from the comfort of his soft bed at the shelter! If you are interested in meeting Marmaduke, please let us know. We are happy to introduce you!
