Alabama Bob

We picked up this beefcake in Inyo County. He first came to the Inyo shelter in back in January 2019. He was surrendered back to the Inyo shelter with a bum leg in March and has been there ever since. He was adopted while with the shelter but the apartment complex kicked him out for being a Pit Bull (modern day discrimination), which I’m sure devastated his family.


Alabama Bob, aka Bama , aka Bobby Bama, aka The Dark Knight, aka Thicc Boy could not be loving life at the ranch more!


We’ve spent some time getting Bob comfortable with most of the dogs at the ranch and every introduction went off without a hitch. Bob has every quality you look for in a companion, and a friend, and a confidant and in a protector. He is incredibly soft and friendly but also understands the value of a good romp!


Everybody has fallen in love with him—head over heels—and now it’s your turn!

Once Bob loses about 5 pounds, we can get him in for ACL surgery, after which point he’ll be up for adoption. This boy may be having a blast up at the ranch but he deserves to be in a home, spreading his special kind of magic.




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.
