Breed: Pitbull x
Age: 1 year old
Alice and her sister Zooey were picked up as strays by our city shelter. These 2 likely lived their entire short lives as outside dogs and came to us knowing nothing. They are both super people friendly and want so desperately to give and receive love. They are extremely affectionate and smart and have excelled with all training tasks given at the ranch. They really want to please and are thriving with the direction, routine and structure provided by ranch staff.
Although they are sisters Alice and Zooey are not bonded and do better when separated. They have opposite energies and would not be a good match if adopted together.
Alice has more of a dominant personality. She lacks social skills with other dogs and has displayed tension issues when on leash. Ranch staff are working on her dog to dog communication and slowly integrating her into play groups at the ranch. We expect she’ll be adoption ready in approximately 6 weeks once she’s completed her training.
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.
