FEATURED: Marshall in Charleston Charleston -- Eleven-year-old Marshall is a very laid back and easy going kinda guy. He gets along with all people and all other animals. He was left homeless when his devoted owner died suddenly of a massive heart attack. Marshall has some mobility challenges (currently responding to medication) and his hearing isn't perfect, but he always tries hard to please and has begun to learn hand signals in his foster home. He's the kind of dog who will fit right into anyone's routine. This super-sweet honey of a dog needs a home that will be a constant in his life, giving him love and care in a consistent manner.
