Mila

Sex: Female

Breed: Australian Cattle Dog x

Birth Date: 8/4/2020

Found abandoned with a leash on and her puppies placed in a basket Mila had to be so confused. Where and who she thought was home discarded her and her babies likely because of the amount of work it takes to care for a litter of puppies. If they’d only had this sweet girl spayed life would have been so much simpler. But thankfully Mila was helped by a Good Samaritan and made her way to Kern County Animal services where our foster picked her up once she’d completed her stray hold.

The shelter is not a great environment for a mom and puppies and Mila is so grateful to be out and in foster care. She is a super sweet and loving girl and wants to be with humans as much as she possibly can. She’s house trained and seems to have some basic obedience skills but will need a bit more leash training. She’s good with children and other dogs and will make some very lucky family the perfect furry addition. If you think she just might be the dog for your family apply today!


  • 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.
