An undeniably handsome, incredibly unique looking dog named "Marshall," is in desperate need of a helping hand before his life is prematurely ended.

Marshall, an 18-month-old pit bull mix, has run out of time at the New London, Conn., Animal Control.

Even though Marshall is incredibly handsome, with his stunning big ears, intelligent eyes and stubby, little legs - nobody has stepped up to offer him a home.

Now the situation for the young dog has reached a critically urgent point - tomorrow is Marshall's last day.

The following information has been shared about Marshall:

18 months old
55 pounds
Loves to play tug and chase a tennis ball
Very friendly
Very active
Seems unconcerned with kitties
Would like to meet and greet other dogs before joining a family
Animal control prefers that he join a household with older children

Anyone who is interested in saving Marshall is asked to call 860-447-5231.

I cannot imagine this so handsome pup is on a death row. Please some one come forward at least at the last minute and help this beautiful innocent soul. Can't anyone from that institute publish this dog's picture on the face book and ask some one to adopt him. My prayers are with you Marshall.

Latest news: "New-London AnimalControl: OK folks, here is the latest scoop on Marshall. The CT Humane Society in Newington is going to be evaluating him on Tuesday. Marshall is absolutely safe until that time. I spoke with the people who have expressed an interest in fostering him, and everyone is good with him going up there with the high hopes that he will pass his test with flying colors and will get completely vetted (neutered, vaccs, HW) before finding his forever home. They get a lot more people looking for dogs coming through their kennels, and the dogs get a lot more attention than Mike and I are able to provide since we still have to work cases as well as care for the dogs. The coordinator from CHS assured me that if he doesn't pass his test (which is almost exactly the same test we do here), he will be vetted at their expense and will be returned to us. At that time, the people who expressed interest in fostering him will step up to do so. I truly appreciate all the hard work everyone has put into sharing and networking Marshall. I have a super positive feeling that this will be perfect for him!"

Noted, tweeted,shared, commented. So sad that this handsome, healthy puppy will probably die tomorrow. Everyone should make certain his/her pet is sterilized. It is cruelty to allow dogs to reproduce when there are no available homes. We should also work on providing "no kill" shelters.

Every living creature deserves the chance to live~~I hope someone will have a heart and adopt this precious baby Marshall. If the animal shelters could get killing off their minds and get the right people to work with the animals (that is people with hearts), I KNOW that more homes could be found for these poor, precious beings and more, if not all, could be saved. It is not right that any living creature has to die for no reason other than being born into this cruel world with so many people who don't care, and unfortunately, people have the upper hand. It should not be that way, but, sadly, it is. PLEASE>>>>>someone save this precious little soul.

GREAT NEWS: New-London AnimalControl: Marshall passed his temperament test with flying colors! But if everyone here in Newington keeps telling him how handsome he is, his head will get even bigger than it already is, lol. He's off to be neutered (sorry buddy, but you'll be happier without them!) and have his umbilical hernia repaired. Then he'll go up for adoption and find a new home in no time! I'm sure he's just happy he doesn't have to listen to me sing the whole trip back! GOOD LUCK MARSHALL!!! Best use of 2 1/2 hours of my day off!
