Synopsis

In the story of Marshall the Miracle Dog, readers glean hope. Even though Marshall has been the victim of unfathomable abuse, he is not broken. Found at the home of an animal hoarder, Marshall was rescued and later adopted by author Cyndi Willenbrock. From the start, readers sympathize with Marshall, as they follow him from discovery to recovery. At first, Marshall is frightened and unsure of the strangers who bring him to safety; however, he learns to trust the kindness of others. Even though he is severely malnourished and loses a leg, he has a spirit that can only be described as miraculous! Marshall s astounding resilience inspires us all. He does not let circumstances beyond his control define him. Marshall the Miracle Dog begins with tragedy, but ends in triumph. Of Marshall and his incredible recovery and impact on her life, Willenbrock explains, He taught me how to be his mother. Marshall showed me how to be strong. I didn t teach him; he taught me. Marshall the Miracle Dog transforms himself and those around him.
