Breed: Terrier x
Estimated Date of Birth : 05/05/2022
This sweet momma had the decks stacked against her the moment she entered the shelter. Not only are there dozens of moms and babies vying for rescue and adoption attention but we suspect she is a Double Merle. What this means is due to her breeding she is deaf and has some eye sensitivity too. Her babies thankfully are completely normal happy healthy pups. We couldn’t think of a better little family to help and so we pulled them into foster care.
Astrid has been a wonderful mother and her time raising babies is almost over. What this means is she will actively be searching for her perfect forever home. She’s a really good girl and doesn’t let her deafness slow her down. She’s both dog and cat friendly and has done well with all the people she’s met. With her unique look and winning personality we’re confident we’ll find this sweet girl the perfect home. Deaf dogs can lead completely normal lives and actually rely more on their other senses to navigate the world. Astrid is just about ready to meet you. Will you give her a chance?
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.
