Though Marschner never met John in person, she coordinated adopting Yola through his friend, Beverly Hughes. In addition to Yola, Hughes told Marschner about a 5-year-old French bulldog-boxer mix named Boogy who was also looking for a home, and Marschner agreed to take him as well. “I wasn’t sure about taking two new dogs, but I am so glad I did,” Marschner said. “I love them both very much.”
Sadly, John passed away on August 1, 2017, just a few weeks after Yola found her new home.
