Sex: Female

Breed: Pitbull

Age: 1 year old

Mia is a one year old female Pitbull breed. We save some pretty sad cases and this girl is one of the saddest. Mia Rose came into our city shelter emaciated, in active labor and with a raging uterine infection. Puppies were stuck in her birthing canal and thankfully the snip bus was at the shelter and they were able to perform an emergency c-section. Even with their quick action every single one of her puppies died. Her infection also continued to rage and she needed emergency care. We picked her up and rushed her to VCA-Bakersfield.

This girl has been used by humans. She has been used for the money her puppies provided. Her body bears the evidence of many litters born and likely many dollars made at her expense. When will we, as humans, learn that other living beings are not here strictly for our profit. Now she needs our support both physical and financial. It’s time for humans to care about her. It’s her time to come 1st. Mia Rose is currently recovering in foster care. We are confident she’ll make a full recovery and make an amazing new family member once she’s ready for adoption.

Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:

  • 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.
