Story
Zeke! This handsome pint sized puppy does have some special needs: our veterinarian believes he is sight impaired, although how much we do not know. He is so lucky to be in a wonderful foster home along with his brother Lance (the other 8 siblings don’t have fosters) and foster Mom says he gets around fine and seems to use sound to help! He likes to snuggle and steal your socks, sometimes right off of your foot! He can be a rascal but is so funny and adorable. Zeke is also turning 2 months old - mom looked like a medium sized pitty mix and Dad, well, she wouldn’t tell us ☺️. Help Zeke find his furever home! Visitors to the shelter are by appointment only and after an application has been submitted online: www.marshmallowfoundation.org

Story
Eva (2 yrs) is a very sweet but super shy pup when she meets new people or is in new surroundings. She currently lives in a home with 2 adults and another dog, whom she loves very much! She would benefit greatly from having a confident doggy pal to be her bud and kinda show her the ropes of life with her new fam. She is kennel trained and picks up on basic obedience very quickly. Contact us and we can put you in charge with her wonderful foster family to discuss our little peanut! www.marshmallowfoundation.org

Story
Henry (7.5 yrs) is an older boy who absolutely loves his people to the ends of the earth and will go anywhere with them! He likes playing with dogs his size or smaller. Sometimes his Heeler comes out when it comes to dogs larger than him and he tends to get sassy with them. Henry loves all sorts of toys but not so much sharing them. Bones are his favorite. He has a great recall. Would ride in a car all day long. Henry does not enjoy being left alone; he wants to snuggle! He walks well on a leash & does great with kids. Can be a bit protective of his people when it comes to strangers but warms up quickly. He also makes goofy little snorting noises when he is excited. He is such a warm & loving companion! www.marshmallowfoundation.org
