ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-Marshall the Miracle Dog, real-life canine and inspiration for the popular children’s book by the same name, has become the new face of the 4-H Club’s anti-bullying campaign. Missouri 4-H Youth Development Specialist Amanda Meek and author Cyndi Willenbrock stopped by KPLR 11 to discuss how this canine is helping kids across the nation.

4-H recently developed the Marshall Mentoring Program where high school students receive anti-bullying training and use those skills to assist children in variety of after-school programs. With Marshall himself often making an appearance, kids learn the importance of courage and kindness when faced with bullying.

For the opportunity to meet Marshall the Miracle Dog, author Cyndi Willenbrock will be holding a book signing on Sunday, September 11th, in Queeny Park. For more information about this event, visit To find out more about the Marshall Mentoring Program, please visit
