Marshmallow is a type of confectionery that is typically made from sugar, water and gelatin whipped to a solid but soft consistency. It is used as a filling in baking, or normally molded into shapes and coated with corn starch.
SEPR's Marshmallow is just as amazing as your conventual soft treat as well! He arrived with an entire list of alignments, but not once has he shown any distain for his human saviors. Sweet as candy would describe this one best. Although, he has shown us he truly would rather be smothering us with love than confined to a kennel.
Marshmallow is just a young kid, but he has had his fair share of bad luck in his young life. Coming in from Georgia, Marshmallow was loaded with health problems, heartworm positive, broken canine tooth, worms, two different strains of blood borne tick diseases, and he had been shot at some point. Way too many health issues for one dog to have, but we weren't about to back down from a challenge. After a round of heartworm injections, dental surgery, 30 days of multiple different medications, surgery to remove the pellet he was shot with, and a PCR retest.....we (and Marshmallow) are happy to report a clean bill of health.
Once we got him healthy, we started to see Marshmallow's happy personality shine through. He absolutely loves people, all people..young..old...doesn't matter he gets equally excited. Snuggs are his favorite thing, a nap right by your side, or on the dog bed next to you. One of the perks of a foster home, all the toys, Marshmallow has been able to discover the fun of toys.....and he loves it..all sorts of toys.
Marshmallow is slowly getting to explore his big new world, which is kind of scary...but it's ok.. his canine friends are helping show him that it's nothing to be afraid of. Starting small with car rides and walks, moving to quiet stores and patios, slowly boosting his confidence..but Marshmallow is always more comfortable at home where he can be his silly loving self. A home with a confident canine companion would be preferable, he enjoys the presence of big and small dogs.
In addition to boosting his confidence in public, Marshmallow is working on his commands. Being treat motivated makes training time easier, he has already mastered the basics of Sit, Down, Come, and Look.
Marshmallow does have some separation anxiety, he is very attached to his people and would prefer to be by their side at all times. Having his canine friend kenneled next to him helps, not completely, but he's still working on it... Rome wasn't built in a day.
All in all Marshmallow is a very sweet goofy boy, who would love nothing more than to be by your side all the time, he doesn't care what you're doing...he's just happy to be with you.
We know there's the perfect family out there for this sweet boy, in the meantime he will keep working.
