Marc is a 9-year-old boy who loves policemen, specifically the K-9 unit! Marc’s favorite animal is a dog, and he has always wanted one for a pet. For Marc’s one true wish, he wished to have a black German Shepherd puppy, which he named Duke!
Marc’s wish began when he and his mom set out to pick-up the nine week old puppy at from the German Shepherd breeder. Marc and his mom spent time with the breeder asking questions and learning the basics of caring for and training Duke.
Next up on the day of Marc’s wish was receiving the celebrity treatment at the local PetSmart store. Marc, his mother and Duke arrived by stretch limousine where the red carpet was rolled out from door to door. Duke’s breeder, Gainesville Police Officers, PetSmart staff and the Make-A-Wish volunteers greeted them with banners, balloons and gifts before the shopping spree began for his new furry friend.
Marc was overwhelmed by the amount of support he received and everyone taking the time to make his wish of having his very own canine puppy a reality! He is so grateful for everything that’s been done for him and feels especially overjoyed that he has found his new side-kick.
