Are you ready for some wire haired Doxie adorableness. Now add to that all the happy go lucky puppy antics. Throw in some short little cartoon legs and you’ve got Nick! He’s like a character right out of a Jim Henson show. Ridiculously cute and so stinking fun! He LOVES everyone and everything. Dogs of all sizes are his very best friends and humans are super rad too. Toys are his absolute favorite and food might even top that. He’s seriously a fantastic and charming little dude.

Sadly someone didn’t see what we see. Nick, his mom, Stevie (see what we did there) and a sibling were brought in as strays to our city shelter. They waited for their family to claim them but no family ever showed. The sibling was adopted but still Nick and his mom waited. We knew we could find them the perfect adopters so they both joined the Marleys crew and went in to foster care.

In true puppy fashion Nick didn’t miss a beat. His happy energy and friendly nature have followed him into his foster home. He’s started to learn rules and boundaries cause all good little puppies need to know about those and he’s doing great with his crate training which will give him a foundation for future house training skills. He’s made all sorts of new furry friends and is learning positive social skills. The only thing Nick needs to complete his puzzle is a perfect forever home. If you’re as charmed as we are get those applications in today we have a feeling this scruffy nugget won’t last long.


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.
