Breed: Poodle x
Age: 12 years old
Nani came to us in deplorable condition. We suspect she hadn’t been groomed for several years. She was a solid mass of mats, filth, excretion and fleas. What made it even worse was this poor girl was a senior. She was found sitting in the middle of the road. She had sat in the same spot for several days before someone helped her. We suspect either she could no longer move or it was too painful to move because she was so matted.
It took the better part of an entire day but we removed those mats and for the 1st time in many years Nani was able to move freely. We got her into foster care and waited patiently for her to come around. Initially Nani didn’t do much. She appeared confused and disoriented. With patience and time Nani has come out of her shell. Her coat is filling back in and she’s adorable.
Nani is your typical senior pup. She sleeps a lot, she moves slowly and she enjoys her food and all the soft warm spaces. She doesn’t hear very well and that’s ok. She sun bathes, toddles around the house and occasionally looks for a little attention and love. After the years of neglect she endured she deserves all of this and more. Nani like many senior pups is a little particular about where’s she’s touched. If you touch the areas she doesn’t enjoy she’ll let you know. We’ve learned to avoid those spots to temper her grouchiness.
Nani is ready to find her forever home. We’d love for a wonderful soul to look beyond her age and give her the amazing forever home she should have always had. She’s fine with other respectful dogs and would like a quiet home to live out her days. She deserves a soft place to land for the time she has left. Can you provide her with that peace?
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.
