Emma

Sex: Female

Breed: Poodle x

Estimated Birth Date: 6/17/2018

We’ll never understand why humans let their dogs get into the condition Emma was allowed to get in to and then add a pregnancy and birth to that senerio! It’s absolutely heartbreaking!

Emma and her baby were picked up and brought to our city shelter. Once there Emma went into full blown momma bear mode. She was growling and snapping and doing everything in her power to keep her only baby safe. Little did she know that the people at the shelter just wanted to help both her and her new born baby.


And let us tell you our shelter staff are amazing! They do everything in their power to get dogs like Emma and her baby into the safety of rescue. Emma and baby Ellie are now safe in foster care and thriving. Momma Emma is no longer an angry defensive mom and is actually the sweetest dog ever! It’s amazing what a foster home can do. And baby Ellie is growing and healthy and we can’t wait to see what an adorable bundle she’s going to be. This sweet duo will be available for adoption separately in approximately 3 months.


  • 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.
