Malcolm was homeless and soon joined the Michigan Animal Rescue League (MARL). Nobody knew much about his origins and past back then. It didn't take long, however, for everyone to see what an amazing doggy he was.
The longest resident resident at the shelter
Malcolm has an amazing character. Whenever someone entered his stall, he would often greet him with a toy in his mouth, parading around in a circle and happily swaying his ass. He was always eager to meet new people. It was enough to give him a few treats to break the ice. Says Tommy Sanfilippo, one of the employees of the Michigan Animal Rescue League (MARL).
With such a star personality, everyone assumed that it wouldn't take Malcolm long to find his perfect home. Unfortunately this did not happen. He soon became the longest-lived resident at the shelter.
Managed to befriend the mother-to-be
Every day Malcolm watched as other dogs were adopted during the while he was still waiting. Fortunately, he didn't mind living in the shelter, and he learned the style and schedule fairly quickly. Throughout this time, he became very attached to all staff members and volunteers – and so he finally found his home forever.
He has already made friends with his future mother; met him while volunteering with us and spent a lot of time with him. They even went on joint trips: to the park, to the pet store, and even to her house. Says Tommy Sanfilippo.
First family photo
Everyone was very excited when the day finally arrived when Malcolm found his new home. Even he himself seemed to sense that this was a special moment – and when it was time to take the first family photo, his smile said it all!
I think he noticed that this day was unlike any other. His huge smile as he posed for a photo with his new family is truly worth it all. – admitted Tommy Sanfilippo.
His biggest dream has finally come true
Malcolm was very excited to finally find a family. He was smiling broadly all the time. And although everyone in the shelter was sad to see him go forever, they were also very happy that his biggest dream finally came true.
