Like big, handsome dogs? Then you must meet Marshal!
Hi there, my name is Marshal! My body is larger-than-average, but so is my heart! I came to ACCT as a stray. I must have gotten lost, but a nice person brought me to the shelter. Now I have a bunch of new friends! They love me a lot, so they are trying to find a great home for me.
I am part of the Pen Pal program at the shelter, and my pen pals (that's right, not one but two!) are helping me work on my basic commands and manners. My Pen Pals are teaching me so much! I know "sit", "look at me", "touch" and I am learning more new commands every week. My Pen Pals like to take me on long walks and I love the time out of the shelter with some one-on-one time with my special friends. They sometimes use a harness or a Gentle Leader so I can walk nicely with them. Besides fun walks, I love nice pets and a little massage and I turn to a big mushy boy. I love to have some quiet time with people. Do you have a nice soft bed I can sleep on to relax? I would love to be your buddy and keep you company. I also love to play with tennis balls! I have not yet mastered the game of fetch just yet but I love to chase the balls and chew on them.
Marshal is part of the ACCT Pen Pal program. That means that he is paired with volunteers who are dedicated to helping him learn basic commands, keeping him stress-free while in the shelter, and who market him to potential foster parents and adopters. If you want to know more about Marshal or see if he is a good fit for you, please contact his Pen Pals at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
