Marshall The Miracle Dog Helps Kids Value Kindness
Marshall was abandoned, abused and starving. He was among 60 other dogs living on a property without food, water and shelter. During the time of his rescue by Animal Planet's Confessions, he had a badly broken front leg, bite marks all over his body and a tennis ball sized hole in the side of his face. The Humane Society of Missouri came to the dogs rescue, however Marshall's injuries were so serious they required surgery before he could be put up for adoption. On the operating table, Marshall passed away...but was resuscitated and the medical team was able to repair his face and amputate his infected leg.
Today, Marshall lives in his forever home with owner Cyndi Willenbrock. Cyndi has made it her mission to not let Marshall's traumatic story go unheard, in fact, she has been able to use the events of his past to spread hope to young kids being picked on and bullied in school. Marshall not only warms the hearts of those closest to him, but has inspired a feature film, "Marshall's Miracle", staring Lucas Carroll, Shannon Elizabeth, Matthew Settle and Lauren Holly.
