Marshall's Story

Say hello to adorable Marshall!  This cute little boy just wants to find a human friend who can help him to enjoy his golden years in a loving forever home!  Marshall was originally found as a stray and brought to PAWS to give him a chance at fulfilling his dream of finding someone who will cherish and love him unconditionally.  Spending his life living on the streets of Chicago has made it difficult for this sweet boy to adjust to life in a shelter environment, so he is currently enjoying some rest and relaxation time in a wonderful foster home!  Marshall is an affectionate guy who enjoys going for walks through the park, spending quality time with his people, and eating as much food as his tiny tummy can handle!  He is highly food motivated and loves munching on a nice treat!  Marshall just wants to find someone who enjoys lounging around as much as he does and who will make him the center of their world! 

Marshall hopes to find a quiet and calm home with a family who is home throughout the day as he is not a big fan of being left alone.  He is getting the hang of crate training in his foster home and is mostly housebroken!  Marshall is such a friendly boy and enjoys the occasional scratch under the chin or behind the ear, but he’d much rather keep the petting to just that.  He is not a big cuddle bug and seems to enjoy resting next to his people instead of in their lap!  Marshall would probably be completely content to spend his days living it up on the couch or in a cozy doggy bed!  If you feel like adorable little Marshall could be the one, then email us at to learn more on how you can meet him!  You’re bound to fall in love with him as soon as you see him!

  • Keep me company!  I prefer homebodies who are often at home.
  • I'm a great walking partner and can for miles!
