Adoption fee: $500
Location: Austin area
Do you have a sweet tooth? My name is Marshmallow and I am a fluffy white, sweet girl who was picked up by animal control as a stray. The shelter contacted SMRS and a volunteer was sent right over to bring me to safety. I was most likely used for breeding purposes and have had a few litters of pups. I was battling a uterus infection, but my spay cleared that up. I also had an ear infection and UTI, but those have been treated too. I do take eye drops daily and have moderate entropion (eye lashes rub eyes) that could be treated surgically in the future. Now that I am feeling better and that life is behind me I am ready to search for my home sweet home.
I am a low energy type girl who loves cuddle on the couch and believe it or not, I am an expert lap dog. I am crate trained with no anxiety, I am not fully house trained, but I am working hard to learn this new routine. You see when you are a breeder dog you are not always taught potty etiquette. I would do best with a midday potty break if you work away from the home.
An experienced owner would be a plus for me as I am a deaf dog, but being deaf doesn't interfere with me giving and receiving love. I will require a home with a fenced yard as I will wander off and I am not able to hear you call me. I currently live with other fur friends in my foster home and I will need to be properly and slowly introduced as I am a dominant type female. I am a versatile girl and would be perfectly happy as an only pet. Although I do not live with children in my foster home I would enjoy older teen age children who would be willing to rub my belly and snuggle. My foster family describes me as a lovely, special girl who will fill your life with oodles of love.
So give into your sweet tooth and adopt me...Marshmallow, fill out my adoption application without delay.
