Leo

Sex: Male

Breed: German Shepherd x

Birth Date: 09/28/2020


We love the gentle giants and Leo is a sweet 2 year old shepherd cross with a gentle old soul. His shy personality meant he didn’t stand out at the shelter. He spent weeks sitting in his kennel at Kern County Animal Services with no interest. A shelter environment is really hard for shy dogs and so we knew we had to give this sweet boy the chance he needed.

Leo’s soft eyes pulled us in and we hope you can see why. Seriously how can you resist the soulfulness those eyes project. We know his time on our ranch will give him the skills he needs to be more confident. He’s already mastered loose leash walking and his calm demeanor makes him one of our easiest ranch pups. This boy is really wonderful and is ready to find an equally wonderful family to call his own.


  • Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook

  • Each pet will have its own profile here on the website

  • All pets will be spayed or neutered

  • All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date

  • Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)

It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.


We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.


It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.


If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.


Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.


If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
