Meet this Cameron nursing home’s youngest resident: Marmaduke the Great Dane

CAMERON, TX — For the residents of one small town nursing home, a ray of joy has shone brightly through the onset of the pandemic – Marmaduke the Great Dane mix.

The dog was first rescued in Milam County as a stray in late 2019, and by 2020 the animal nonprofit Milam Touch of Love knew just the forever home where he would fit in. Shortly after the nation began to shut down due to COVID-19, Marmaduke made his big move into Legacy Nursing and Rehabilitation of Cameron as a therapy dog. 

Watch the video below for the story.

Marmaduke’s presence makes the nursing home feel a little more like a traditional home, and the emotional comfort he brings both residents and caregivers is unique.
