Raider (Stitch)

Sex: Male
Breed: German Shepherd/Rottweiler x
Age: 1 year
Can you imagine being chained up, living your entire 1st year of life with a collar that has grown so tight it comes close to severing your head? And your humans…they see nothing wrong with your situation and just leave you to rot in their yard!?!?! This was Raider’s reality. He just existed and his collar grew tighter daily cutting into the flesh around his neck. Thankfully for this big guy a Good Samaritan saw the direness of his situation and did something. They didn’t stop until he was taken from his home and given the care he so desperately needed.
Tehachapi vet stepped up and removed Raiders imbedded collar and stitched him all up. They then reached out to us. Of course we couldn’t say no and welcomed Raider into the Marleys Mutts crew.
Raider is a big happy goober. Despite his previous lack of care he loves humans and has a great disposition. He’s initially shy when meeting new people but warms up quickly. We’ll take time over the next 4 weeks while he heals to get to know him even better, access his social skills with other dogs and figure out what type of home environment will best fit his personality.

Scar

Sex: Male
Breed: Great Pyrenees
Age: 5 years old
Welcome Scar to Marleys Mutts!
Big, beautiful, majestic! There’s a lot to love about these brothers. Scar and his brother Pumba were rescued from Inyo county shelter after they’d been picked up as strays. These boys are STUNNING. Scar tops out in the 120-130lb range and Pumba is even larger at about 150lbs. These 2 are truly gentle giants and we will be looking for a home where they can be adopted together.
True to the Pyrenees nature these guys would do best with lots of space. Pyrenees are guardian breeds and like to roam and patrol. Apartment or condo living would not be a good fit for these two and we’d actually prefer they have some acreage to stretch their legs.
If you’re looking for a couple of extra large, well adjusted boys apply to make Simba and Pumba part of your family.

Raul

Sex: Male
Breed: Chihuahua x
Age: 5 years old
Raul is a shy chihuahua mix that is about 5 years old and originally came to us from a shelter in Upland. He was adopted into a wonderful home 2 years ago but his adoptive mama was admitted into a long term care facility and can no longer care for him.
Raul is happiest when he is physically touching his humans or has his people in sight. He’s very shy and reserved when meeting new people but once he warms up you will be his sun, moon and stars. He’s good with other dogs and is quiet as a mouse.
Raul sleeps in a crate at night and when he is left at home alone. He has the funniest sleeping habit of lying belly up and twitching his feet in the air while he dreams —but first he does the cutest nest scratching, bundling up his blankets or bed before lying down.
Raul would be happiest in a child free home. Walking on a leash is easy for Raul, he actually puts his head into the leash all by himself, while wagging his tail! With his human as pack leader Raul only occasionally pulls on the leash and is content to trot alongside your feet or next to other dogs while out for a walk.
If you’re looking for a little love bug, who just needs a little time to warm up Raul is your guy!

Max

Sex: Male
Breed: Schnauzer/Poodle x
Age: 5 years old
Max came to us when one of our wonderful fosters saw him advertised in our local newspaper for free. Free dogs don’t always end up with a happy ending so we were happy to step up and help.
Max would do best in a home without children. We’re still accessing him with other dogs as he’s had some bossy tendencies when around dogs.
He’s crate trained and approximately 30lbs. He’s not a fan of grooming or having his collar grabbed but is a very affectionate boy who wants to hang out with his humans and get all the snuggles and love. If you think Max would be the perfect addition to your family apply to adopt him today!

Everyone LOVES puppies but there’s something extra special about Tripp!
Poor 10 week old Tripp found himself at Kern County Animal Services after he’d been picked up as a stray. This little guy has had a rough start in life. Whoever he belonged to previously cut his ears off and used sewing thread to stitch up their hack job. His poor ears were so infected but with the excellent care he received while at the shelter he’s now on the road to recovery.
Tripp is settling into foster care and seems to have no ill will as a result of his previous treatment. He’s a happy, bouncy and playful puppy. He’ll be adoption ready in 4-6 weeks and we can’t wait to show him how amazing life can be!

Find the original story with video segment here: https://tinyurl.com/yyspbrb9

BAKERSFIELD, CA. (KGET) – Avyanna was shot in her back, abandoned in a field, and giving birth to her puppies.

The gun shot severed her spinal cord. She has no deep pain sensation in her back legs. But, she is fighting. Avyanna is giving her five puppies a fighting chance.

The founder of Marley’s Mutts, Zach Skow says if this had been a human, it would be everywhere. But a dog is teaching us the lesson to fight, even during the difficult times. “If a human woman had been shot in the back, paralyzed, gave birth in a field, and is at a recovery center, it would be all over cnn. but you have a dog who did it. it’s just remarkable, incredibly remarkable,” says Skow.

In what can seem like such a tragedy, came to be a story of resilience and positivity. Avyanna along with her five puppies are creating a new narrative for their life; One full of love for their new owners as they embark on another chapter.

Avyanna will continue here road to recovery at Marley’s Mutts in Wheely World where she’ll be equipped with a wheelchair to help her get around.
