The inspirational film about Marshall, a dog who was rescued by the Humane Society of Missouri from an abandoned property with over 60 dogs living there. Marshall had been badly injured and left for dead by the other dogs, he was rescued and taken care and then Cyndi Willenbrock ended up adopting Marshall a few months later.

Principal photography began on June 2, 2014, in Edwardsville, Illinois. Shooting also took place in Metro East, Troy, Il., and St. Louis, Missouri.

A 13-year-old boy becomes the target of bullies at his new school and is feeling hopeless, until he finds Marshall being caged up by a dog-hoarder in deplorable conditions. Finn knows he must rescue Marshall, but he has been abused by the other dogs and needs to see the vet right away. The bond of friendship is immediate.


A young boy named Finn rescues an injured dog from an abandoned property in St. Louis. 12-year-old Finn (Lucas Carroll) endures daily torment from the bullies at his school, but his life begins to change the day that he encounters a Labrador retriever named Marshall. When Finn first finds the dog, Marshall is being held in deplorable conditions by an animal hoarder who keeps 60 dogs penned up on her isolated ranch. The boy sees something of himself in Marshall: Both are bullied, but both are brave. By saving Marshall from the dogs that are attacking him, Finn pulls off a daring rescue—and that’s only the beginning of the story. Inspired by a true story, “Marshall the Miracle Dog” stars Shannon Elizabeth, Lauren Holly, and Matthew Settle.
