It started in the spring of 2011 when a person driving around in rural Minnesota found a black dog running in and out of the road. The man stopped but to get the dog but it wouldn't come; it kept running away...the man followed and then discovered a small emaciated brown dog. (this would become my dog)...the small dog was so weak he could not stand, he could not walk, he could hardly move. The man took this brown dog to the Marshmallow Foundation in Detroit Lakes. The black dog came with. Once at the The Marshmallow foundation animal rescue shelter the staff quickly took both animals inn. But this brown dog... they just didn't know if he would make it. But they refused to do nothing...the team hooked up an I V and cared for him. Soon this animal that weighed half of what he should have was now able to move and appeared to have life. Soon he was able to eat solid food and stand. He was later named Lucky by the staff at the shelter...and the black dog who came with him--- Guardian. Then in August of 2011....It was a little over a month after the death of my prior dog. I was in a deep depression and having trouble adjusting. After speaking with a therapist it was recommended I look to get another dog to deal with my depression. So I walked into the Marshmallow Animal Rescue Shelter. I looked at multiple dogs but really there was only one...He was this brown mixed breed mutt who's personality astounded me. Calm and Confident. We where together in the dog park and it was clear this dog was very affectionate. I asked to adopt and when I brought him home named him Caesar...today we are best of friends and I'm so glad to have him in my life. I'm so glade I choose a shelter dog...and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Thanks to all those at the who gave Caesar a second chance at life because it gave me mine back.
