Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Adoption Date: March 4, 2017
Adopted by: Ashley Turchi
This family and this story about Marmalade will just make you cry. Ashley Turchi applied for Marmalade but we looked away because she had no fence and we do worry about those circumstances, but Ashley pushed back, and Laura talked to her and got a very good understanding of the family and the situation where they live and she felt this was a great place for her.
We did the introductions of Marmalade and their dog Cheddar away from the family and in the Ranch building and we see no negativity from these two living together.
Ashley’s daughter Leikyn has been battling cancer and they were hoping that Marmalade could be her therapy dog. As you can see by the photos Marmalade took to Leikyn instantly and it was very clear that these two girls will love each other forever.
Marmalade just kept going to the door with Leikyn on the other end of the leash as if to say this is my family, thanks for everything you’ve done but I need to go now. She went out the door with her little girl and she never looked back.
It does appear that patience and prayers have brought us a third time is a charm family.
Her name shall remain Marmalade, and we hope to see more of these two girls on the happy tails page forever..
Marmalade was being sold on Craigslist for $100.00 to anyone who could come get her in a couple of hours or she was going to the pound. She was tied with a chain in the backyard in the mud and was literally crawling with fleas. She was emaciated and covered in skin infection. She is now undergoing treatment to get her well again. She is heart worm positive just like so many other dogs we have right now. We will get her through it and look for a forever home for her. She is just a sweetheart, about 2 years old and a complete love bug.
