When a shelter dog gets adopted, it’s surely a reason to celebrate. But occasionally, a story like this comes along and that celebration isn’t so simple.
A sweet, deaf Pit Bull, named Marshmallow, became best friends with her shelter roommate. Many shelters pair up dogs that get along and will bring each other comfort. Marshmallow and Scooby shared a kennel at Unleashed Pet Rescue in Kansas.

Their days, although uncertain and without a forever family, were spent together. The two dogs were still able to experience joy and love with one another. But then that all came to a bitter end when Scooby was adopted and Marshmallow was left behind.

“Marshmallow is crying and has been non stop since yesterday,” Unleashed Pet Rescue wrote on Facebook. “Her roommate and best friend Scooby was adopted, she is very confused and sad. What she needs is a forever home to heal her heart.”

Marshmallow had a rough start. She came to the shelter with Parvo. She was also malnourished and underweight. They also realized she’s deaf. Unleashed Pet Rescue made sure the deserving pup was well-cared for. But now that she’s healthy and ready for a forever family, she’s heartbroken. She was in such a good place being able to spend her days happy despite being in a shelter environment because she had Scooby.
Although Marshmallow had a terrible time, it was THANKFULLY short-lived. The sweet girl found her forever home after her story was shared on social media.
We wanted to do an update on Marshmallow.Back on December 17th of 2015 we posted a video of this beautiful deaf pitbull crying into her stuffed animal. It was viewed over 300,000 times…Marshmallow's cry was literally heard around the world.Her story started as puppy living a chain, she was very sick with parvo and luckily we were able to get her the help she needed. For the next year Marshy was at Unleashed, she was even adopted and returned a couple of times. Marshmallow had many friends at the shelter. She became very close with her friend Scooby, he was adopted to a wonderful home. That night is when Marshmallow cried out, we aren't sure if she was missing her roomie, longing for a family of her or just lonely. We posted her video in hopes that someone would adopt her! Marshmallow was adopted just 12 days after her crying video to an amazing home with a Mom, Dad, fur and human siblings. Her video has been circulating again and we want to assure all of you she is very happy, and extremely loved!Here she is enjoying her backyard and living the good life!We are proud of our Marshy, she has overcame so much. Also her group Marshy's Miracles has raised money and awareness for special needs animals.
