Breed: Pittbull x
Age: 16 years old
So many give up on their senior pups and we’ll never understand why. Our job is to love them in their golden years and Jett is no exception. We know we can give this very deserving old guy a chance at an amazing retirement home!
We believe #OldDogsRule and have dedicated ourselves to rescuing seniors since our inception, which is why we couldn’t pass up Jett.
Jett was surrendered by his family to Castaic Shelter. Surrendered seniors dogs are the first to be euthanized when space is an issue, because they aren’t on stray holds and don’t have anyone “looking for them”. He reminded us so much of a previous senior pup, Henry, we just couldn’t say no.
Jett really is one of the sweetest senior pups we’ve helped. He’s a low energy guy and a little shy and unsure with his new surroundings. He doesn’t see very well but still navigates just fine and we expect he has a bit of dementia. All in all, Jett is adjusting here, eating well and sleeping well. Our hope is to find him a new family where his last and most wonderful chapter will be written.
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.
