Marshmallow will make a great for the right lucky family.Prior to adding a new dog to your family, please visit www.justdogbreeds.com to learn about the various personalities and characteristics which will assist in matching the right dog to your lifestyle.

It is important to realize that there is ALWAYS a period of adjustment when adding a rescue dog to a family, which will take time and patience and understanding. Some require more time and patience than others and there may very well be an issue or two to work through in order to learn the rules of the house and to adjust to the new environment.
Please remember, THERE ARE NO PERFECT DOGS, no matter what the background. Dogs generally become what you make of them through your efforts, love, patience, and understanding. And--if you are willing to overlook their slight imperfections, they will certainly overlook yours!
This dog is not for a couch potato.
Marshmallow is a high energy guy. He has springs in his legs. He will jump right into your arms without your having to bend over to pick him up--saves you the effort.
He does settle down in order to sit and be held, so he is not perpetual motion. He very much enjoys cuddling, but has plenty of energy for playing as well.
He is very friendly to people and gets along with some dogs, yet has some aggression toward other dominant males, but is okay with submissive dogs of either gender. He would be okay with a larger, patient, gentle dog OR---
He would be a great only dog and would love to have a home with someone that is home most of the time or with whom he can go. He loves car rides. He would be a great walking companion as well, which would burn off some of his energy--a tired dog is a well-behaved dog.
He was an unclaimed stray and was probably never taught rules, but he is young enough to learn what is expected of him.
He will need an active family who can keep up with him and who will be patient enough to steer his energy in the right direction. A family with older children would be wonderful.
He would benefit greatly from obedience training classes, as would his family. It is a great bonding experience.
We do process the applications in the order that they are received. We cannot guarantee any particular dog will still be available by the time we get to your application. We cannot respond to each application or keep you updated as we go along. We do not consider a dog adopted until the process has been completed and a contract has been signed. As long as the dog is still listed, it is still available and we are processing applications. As soon as a dog is adopted, it is removed from the list. If you apply and your application is approved, we will contact you. If you decide not to wait or find another dog, please let us know so we can go on to another application.
