Big Elf at the Alexandria Animal Shelter Looking for a Home for Christmas

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria wants to find a home for a big elf this Christmas.

Technically, Marshmallow is a dog, but Animal Welfare League spokesperson Gina Hardter called him a “reluctant elf.” Marshmallow is available for adoption at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter (4101 Eisenhower Avenue).

“He’d prefer to receive toys than give them,” Hardter said, “but once you start to play, he realizes sharing is the best of all!”

Marshmallow is a 2-year-old white pit bull known to his friends as M&M, and Hardter said he’s just as sweet as one.

“At 50+ pounds, Marshmallow realizes that you probably wouldn’t be able to share your lap with anyone but him, so he’d prefer to be the only pup in the home,” Hardter said.

While Marshmallow may have been nervous for his elf photoshoot, Hardter said Marshmallow is kind and has a beautiful smile.

“Don’t let his elf face fool you!” Hardter warned. “When he shows off his gorgeous smile, he’s an absolute ray of sunshine.”
