Breed: Australian Cattle Dog x
Birth Date: 6/15/2022
Found abandoned in a basket with their mother who was leashed. These poor babies had a rough start to their very young lives. Our guess is they were likely abandoned because of the amount of work it takes to care for a litter of unexpected puppies. If only their momma had been spayed life would have been so much simpler.
But thankfully this little family was helped by a Good Samaritan and made their way to Kern County Animal services where our foster picked them up once they’d completed a stray hold.
The shelter is not a great environment for a mom and puppies and we are so grateful that a foster home stepped up for this crew. We have no idea who daddy is but we’re guessing there may be some German shepherd in their heritage just based on the coloring of some of the puppies. These sweet pups will be adoption ready in approximately 4 weeks so if you’re looking for a medium size dog to add to your family get those applications in!
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.
