We fell instantly in love and know you will too. You may wonder why this “perfect” dog wasn’t just adopted through the shelter? Why did a rescue have to take her? Well looks can be deceiving. Like so many we rescue this tiny girl is broken. She unfortunately has several issues which make her a poor candidate for adoption through the shelter and make her a much better rescue candidate as rescues have the time and resources to fix the broken ones.

This little girl has some chronic eyes issues typical of her breed but on a more significant note she has a gnarly hip problem that may very well require surgery. Currently she is on heavy duty pain meds to keep her comfortable and we’re working on getting an appointment with our orthopedic specialist. We’ll know more after her visit but send all of your positive vibes her way she’s going to need them.

  • 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.
