Kansas City, MO. — Marshmallow’s story is one of hope, love, and celebration. This young, deaf, Pit Bull has beaten the odds and is finally a treasured member of a family.
Marshmallow was saved by Unleashed Pet Rescue and Adoption after being found abandoned, chained to a fence, and suffering from Parvo virus. This beautiful white Pit Bull fought that deadly disease and survived. Marshmallow began to smile, enjoy life, and made fast friends with her shelter mate, Scooby. The pair were inseparable, often found running and playing together.
When Scooby found her forever home a few short weeks ago, Marshmallow was heartbroken, heartsick, and overcome with sadness. She cried out for her friend in sorrow for hours at a time. Scooby’s family was unable to take both dogs, and Marshmallow was lost without her friend.
Shelter staff was overcome by her emotion, and did all they could to console her. They spent hours alongside her, giving her love and comforting her with toys. They issued an urgent plea across social media in the hopes of finding Marshmallow her own forever home. Their appeals were answered and Marshmallow was adopted.
