Story
We are so happy to introduce you to Toasted Marshmallow and thanks to the shelter his lab work and dental have been performed and he's available for adoption. He's been in a foster home for 2 weeks and this is what we've learned, Toasted Marshmallow is a delight! He has the energy of a much younger dog. I would say he's the most fun loving dog I've ever had live with me. He's so good, quiet, and lovable. He follows me around everywhere. Toasted Marshmallow checks all the boxes, except he hasn't been exposed to cats, but his demeaner tells us he would likely welcome any creature into his realm.Meet 13-year-old Toasted Marshmallow--named by my 13-year-old daughter because this adorable and fun-loving Maltese-Poodle (Maltipoo) has one rear brown paw from the dominating gene of the brown poodle. Marshmallow is healthy and loves to sleep in your lap after a playful round of scratch my butt. He is very obedient and when not receiving attention, he will quietly cuddle himself in his bed. Marshmallow was recently neutered and had a dental that removed many rotten teeth. He has healed quickly and is waiting patiently for his forever home and family.
