Breed: German Shepherd X
Age: 1.5 years old
This handsome dude is Ivar! He’s part of the large group of dogs we brought over from both Morocco and Lebanon prior to the CDC import ban. Since arriving on US soil Ivar has really come out of his shell and is becoming a happy go lucky guy. He’s sweet and affectionate and we’re just now starting to see a goofy and playful side to him.
He’s been fitted for a wheelchair and is ready to find his perfect family. Ivar is great with other dogs and has a fun energy that would make him a wonderful addition to almost any family. He does have minor resource guarding with other dogs around food but is easily corrected. Ivar is adoption ready and would love a caring family of his very own. If his sweet face calls to you like it did us apply to bring him home.
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.
