Breed: Siberian Husky
Age: 6 years old
Looking for a mellow and pretty quiet husky? Well we have one. Meet Alaster!
Alaster came to us from City of Bakersfield Animal Care and Control after he’d been picked up as a stray. Huskys have become just as prolific in our local shelters as the pitties are. It’s incredibly sad that so many are breeding and purchasing these dogs only to realize they require more attention and work than other breeds. Once they realize the work involved these dogs are then dumped. Alaster is a great dog and deserved a chance to find his forever home.
Alaster plays well with most dogs and loves humans! He loves them a little too much in fact. He can get a bit possessive of humans when other dogs are around. He’ll need a family willing to monitor and correct that behavior when they see it. If you’ve been looking for a chill husky your search is over. Apply to make this handsome boy part of your family.
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.
