Sex: Male

Breed: German Shepherd/Husky x

Estimated Date of Birth : 11/16/2023

Arnie’s ice blue eyes and beautiful white fluffy coat showcase his husky heritage. In true husky fashion he’s also a bit of a derp. He’s sweet and shy and melts right into you the moment you pick him up. He’s at the perfect age for training and ranch staff are setting him up right with a foundation in the basics

Arnie, his siblings Becky and Gilbert and mom Bonnie were all found together wandering the streets of Tehachapi. A Good Samaritan picked them up so they wouldn’t get hit or become victims to the elements or wildlife. They completed a stray hold but sadly their former family never came for them. Luckily we had room and the entire family is now calling our rescue ranch home.

Arnie loves playing with his siblings and running around the yard. He loves all things toy and all things fun. What good puppy wouldn’t. Arnie pairs his enjoyment of good times with a nice amount of downtime. He knows how to chill and spends equal time relaxing as he does playing. Ranch staff are working on his leash manners and expanding his canine social skills. We are hopeful to find Arnie a family who will continue his training and give him the forever home he deserves.



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.
