Billie HOWLiday

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Long Coat Chihuahua Mix
Age:  8 Months
Billie was rescued by Marley's Mutts from the Kern County Animal Services shelter in Bakersfield. She was covered in ticks and fleas and was very scared. All that changed within a few days and now she is spunky, playful and beyond adorable. While she still is technically puppy, she is 8 months old, so she's at the stage of puppyhood where she can settle down. That doesn't mean she doesn't want to play! She engages with her foster sisters, bounces around outside and cuddles like no other.

Billie is crate trained, potty trained and is learning to walk on a leash. She just gets tangled a lot because she is so excited to explore. She loves lap time and will slowly crawl towards you and gives your hands gentle licks for petting. She'd be great in a home with other dogs, large dogs unknown as they can be overwhelming for a dog her size. She'd do great with kids who understand to approach gently. Unsure how she is with cats.  If you would like to give this cute girl her furever home, apply to adopt her today!

Samson

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Chihuahua Pug Mix
Age:  2 Years
Samson is a cute boy who came to us from the wonderful Bakersfield City Shelter and is now looking for a home of his own.  Hes a spunky playful little pup who likes to be with other small dogs.  He is great in a crate over night, is potty trained and great on a leash too!  Samson likes kids, but they need to be older and respectful of his space.  So kids 10 and older would be better for Sampson or a home without kids.  Samson would make a great outdoor or travel partner as he is the perfect size for a copilot!  So if you are looking for a smart spunky little buddy to join your family, apply to adopt Samson today!

Batman

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Pitbull Terrier
Age:  3 Years
Na na na na na na BATMAN!  Welcome the caped crusader to the Marleys Mutts family!  Batman came to us from our rescue partner Reversed Rescue and is just a bigger version of Ty's dog who is also named Batman.  This big guy looks a tad intimating at first but once you get past his exterior, you'll find that hes got a big heart of gold!   It takes him a bit to warm up to men, but he LOVES the ladies!   Batman is housebroken and crate trained. He is excellent in the leash. He can sit, stay, shake and lay down. He comes when called and sits next to you.   He does like to play rough and be a bit mouthy when playing but we are working on that with him and will need to continue with that training once he's adopted.  This big guy also is really good with other dogs both big and small if he's properly introduced.  He does however think that fluffy little white dogs are fun toys to play with so he would be best in a home without one of those guys.  Batman is looking for a home with someone who he can be with all day as he has some separation anxiety and will whine in his crate.  He does great when left alone in the crate with peanut butter Kongs and chew bones to keep him entertained.  Batman will need someone who is a strong pack leader and be willing to take him on adventures and to training so he can be the best dog he can once he's adopted.  If you're looking for a dog who is a diamond in the rough Batman is your guy.  Apply to adopt him today!

Ryder

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Cattle Dog
Age:  10 Months
Welcome back Ryder to the Marleys Mutts foster family!  We took in Ryder when he was just two months old abandoned out in the streets.  Ryder was adopted out last summer but sadly his family broke up and they were unable to keep him, so he's back with us looking for the perfect home!  Ryder is a sweet soul and is a really smart boy.  He's still very much a puppy and loves to play.  When we originally took him in we found that he is deaf with some limited hearing.  Ryder need some work with the leash and meeting new dogs.  We're looking for a home that is comfortable with his breed, and his hearing loss since he has different non verbal training needs.  If you would like to give this good boy his furever home, apply to adopt him today!

Lenny

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Age: 8 Years
You're looking at 14 pounds of solid loving at the young age of 8 years
old. Lenny is what you would call, a limited edition, one of a kind! He can be
classified as a universal lover mutt!   Lenny came to us listed as a male, but after noticing a vital part of his anatomy missing along with a really bad bladder infection......we found out that Lenny's appendage was removed!   For 8 months we could not find out why until one day his rescuer reached out to us and told us that she found poor Lenny on the street one day and had a really bad bladder infection with bladder stones.  It was so bad that he could no longer urinate and needed a really expensive rare surgery to save his life.  So she searched high and low to find a shelter or rescue who could help him and she did!  The Upland Shelter took Lenny in and performed the surgery to save him.
Sadly, once we took Lenny in and found out what he was missing....it turned out that the surgery wasn't working out quite well for him, and he needed an additional surgery to correct what was removed.  Lenny since his last surgery has been doing great and has had minimal issues with his urinary tract.  Lenny will need to be on and off medication and prescription food for the rest of his life but none of that affects what kinda dog Lenny is.  Lenny is a sweet and kind dog.  He loves to cuddle and snuggle under the covers.  He's good with other dogs and could be very happy as an only dog too.  Lenny is just a really unique boy who happens to look like a girl on the outside now.  He is the best of both worlds who is looking for a furever home that celebrates his uniqueness.  Apply for this wonderful pup today!

Benny

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Long haired chihuahua
Age:  5 Years
Little Benny is a 5 year old long coated chihuahua and a tiny 4.5lbs. He’s just about as sweet as they come. His momma was elderly and could no longer care for herself which meant she could no longer care for Benny. 
 
Benny is a happy little guy who loves everyone. He’s great with dogs, cats and kids although because of his small size we’d recommend a home with children who can carefully handle him. In his previous home he was house trained to puppy pads. His foster is working on getting him accustomed to using the restroom outside. 
 
Think Little Benny would be the perfect fit for your family? Apply to adopt him today.

Fernita

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Fox Terrier Mix
Age:  10+ Years
Welcome the teeny wonderful Fernita to the Marleys Mutts family!  Fernita was found abandoned, wandering along with some cows late one night by her rescuers.  They searched for over a month to find her owners with no luck, so they reached out to Marleys to help her out.  Fernita was placed in one of our foster homes where it was discovered by out vet she had some very bad teeth, cataracts, and a stage 3 heart murmur.  The bad teeth were removed and she was placed on heart meds and is feeling much better these days!  Her limited vision doesn't seem to stop her from doing what she wants to do at all.  Fernita loves to sit on your lap and curl up under a blanket all day.  This ol' gal also likes to go for rides in the car  and will happily sit on your lap going where ever it is that you're going.  If you are looking for a sweet wonderful teeny old gal, then apply today to adopt Fernita!

Dicken’s

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Age:  8 Years
Dickens is our little Christmas chihuahua! He was pulled from the shelter just before Christmas and spent the entire holiday season with Zach and his family. He is a little bit timid at first but warms up very quickly. We felt he’d be an amazing addition to our CalCity Pawsitive Change program and the time and training in prison would help boost his confidence. Prison time has shown us that Dickens  is an absolute happy go lucky dog underneath that initial timidity.
Dickens is good with other dogs and cats as well.  We think he would just love to spend his days curled up on a couch waiting for his people to get home from work.  He would totally enjoy some long walks on the beach from time to time as well.  As graduation is nearing we’d love to have a forever home for Dickens to go to. If you would like to give this wonderful guy his furever home, apply to adopt him today!

Dasher

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Chihuahua
Age:  3 Years

Dasher (aka Baby Kangaroo) was found nearly dead under a dumpster in Tehachapi by one of our wonderful fosters.  She searched for his people and was unable to find them after a few weeks of searching.   While in our care Dasher has gained weight and joined our Pawsitive Change program at Cal City Prison.

This little baby kangaroo is a shy pup and the training in prison is helping him to build his confidence. He loves  and craves attention and becomes very attached to his person. He would do well in a home with other dogs as he loves being around dogs of all sizes.  We don't know how he is around children, but would be best in a home with older children or no children.  As we are nearly CalCity graduation day we’d love to find Dasher his forever family to go home to.
