Cassie

Sex: Female
Breed: Pomeranian
Age: 8 years old 

Meet Cassie!

Cassie and her Pom friends lost their home when their elderly owner could no longer care for them and her family decided to help her move cross country to be closer to family. OC Pom Rescue gave 4 of the group a soft place to land and Cassie joined our foster crew 

Cassie was the oldest of the group at around 8 years old. So far she is very overwhelmed with the changes in her life but is slowly adjusting. She’s a sweet but very shy girl. She’s good with dogs and would be happiest in a child free home as the energy of active kids would scare her. 

She’s in dire need of basic vetting as her teeth are a mess, she’s never been spayed and her vaccines are not up to date. Once we’ve completed her vet care she’ll be ready for an amazing forever home.

Alvin

Sex: Male

Breed: Pitbull x

Age: 5.5 years old 

This handsome guy is Alvin! 

Alvin was adopted as a tiny puppy and recently returned due to behavioral issues with another dog in the home. Currently Alvin is settling in at the ranch where we’ll take the time to access his needs to help us choose the right forever home for him. 

Alvin is a insecure shy dog and is currently very scared during this transition. We feel he would do best in a quiet home that allows him to decompress at his pace. He LOVES his crate and takes a lot of comfort in using this safe space. He was house trained in his previous home. We’ll post updates as Alvin comes out of his shell and we get to know him better.

Cricket

Sex: Female
Breed: Chihuahua/Doxie x
Age: 1 year old 

Sugar and Spice and everything Nice….most of the time lol. Meet Cricket!

Cricket was surrendered to Kern County Animal Services and labeled a fear biter. Her previous home had multiple children and we’re guessing that they may have been too rough with this tiny girl. She’s only 6lbs so we can imagine multiple little people and all the excited energy that normally comes with children was overwhelming to Cricket. 

Now that she’s in foster care we wouldn’t call her a fear biter but she’s definitely gotten nippy when over excited. Her foster home is working on this with her and she’s getting better. We think her ideal home would have no children and be a calm environment with solid rules and structure to keep her sass at bay. She lives with several small dogs in her foster home and is doing well with them although definitely has the potential to be bossy with other dogs. Cricket is super sweet LOVES attention and has a bouncy silly personality. If you like a little dog with just a touch of spice Cricket might be the one for you.

Ellie

Sex: Female 

Breed: Terrier/Doxie x

Age: 1 year old 

Ellie Belly Happy Feet! This girl is all happy go lucky energy with a zest for life! 

Ellie found herself at Kern County Animal Services after being picked up as a stray. Her family never came fit her and we knew she’d make the perfect addition to the Marleys Mutts crew!

Ellie is a young dog who loves to chew and is learning her way around the sights and sounds of being in a home. A little timid at first Ellie is great with kids, dogs and doesn’t even mind cats. Ellie has learned to sit on command, but will likely need to continue her training. She is super energetic, but also loves to nap and be close to her humans. 

Once Ellie is scheduled and recovered from her spay surgery she will be ready for her brand new forever family.

Grace

Sex: Female
Breed: Doxie x
Age: 6 years old 

Grace found herself at Kern County Animal services after she’d been picked up as a stray. She was stinky and missing a good amount of her beautiful fur. Nothing a little time in foster care, some medication and good food can’t fix. 

Grace is settling into foster care. She is playful and spunky, despite her hair loss. She’s super affectionate and wants to be where the people are. She’s a chill girl when her humans are home and loves to curl up and rest or sleep on her dog bed. She’s good with other dogs.

She’ll need a bit more time in foster care for her fur to fill back in but once it does she’ll be adoption ready and waiting to find her perfect forever home.

Bowie

Sex: Male
Breed: Shepherd x
Age: 16 weeks old

 

Introducing Marleys Mutts foster- Bowie! Our Star Man was rescued on David Bowie’s 74th birthday. He was marked as “feral” and is suffering from multiple broken ribs and several puncture wounds. He was found in an orchard in Buttonwillow and taken to the Kern County Animal Shelter where we came across him during a shelter pull.

His big eyes pulled us in so home with an amazing foster he went! He’s settling in nicely and doesn’t understand why he has to be on kennel rest. We are going slow with him but he has eagerly accepted all the pets his Foster family has offered him. He’s got a long road to recovery but once we get him all healed up, he’s going to make someone an amazing family member.

Fallon

Sex: Female

Breed: Terrier x

Age: 1-2 years old 

This beautiful girl was brought into our city shelter with some gnarly wounds across her back. The wounds were consistent with being attacked by a much larger animal. Bakersfield Vet Hospital got her all patched up and she’s settled into one of our very experienced medical fosters so she can heal. We’ve named her Fallon and so far she’s been a wonderful patient 

Fallon has a long recovery ahead of her. We don’t expect her to be adoption ready for approximately 4-8 weeks. We’ll get to know her during this time so we can pick the perfect home for her. Until she is adoption ready we won’t accept applications for her.
