Nico

Sex: Female

Breed: Labrador/Pitbull X

Estimated Birthdate: 3/9/2021


Shy dogs are our jam and Nico fits the bill perfectly. This beautiful girl found herself at our city shelter and because of her shy demeanor and black coat she was overlooked time and time again. We can change that!


Our Pawsitive Change Prison program is the perfect solution for most shy dogs. What these pups learn in the 3 month long program boosts their confidence and gives them the skills they need to navigate life changes and helps them gain a successful adoption.

That’s exactly what we hope for Nico. A chance at adoption. Once she’s graduated we’ll be looking for her perfect home. She loves to run and play and is super sweet so we are hoping her future home will either be an active family or include another fun dog she can pal around with. If you think Nico might be the perfect fit for you 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.
