Sex: Female

Breed: Pitbull x

Estimated Birth Date: TBA

We’ve got a couple of twinsies! Iris is almost a carbon copy of our girl Dolly (also in our Pawsitive Change Prison program). She looks so much like Dolly it’s hard to tell the two apart and with both in the same prison it definitely makes things interesting.

Iris like so many black pitbull type dogs didn’t stand much of a chance at our city shelter. She has such a fun energy we knew we had to give her a chance. She loves to play and loves other dogs so our Pawsitive Change Prison program at North Kern state prison was the perfect fit for her!

Iris will spend the next 3 months learning basic obedience tasks with our inmate trainers. What she learns in prison will make her an amazing adoptable dog and hopefully improve her chances of finding that perfect family. We can’t wait to see her shine!!!

  • 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.
