Breed: Pit Bull
Estimated Date of Birth : 10/11/2014
Even older dogs can learn new tricks and sweet sweet Bailey is going to show you how it’s done! This girl is spry, active and will probably show all the younger pups up on her Pawsitive Change journey. We know she’s going to succeed and we know she’s going to make a ton of friends along the way. Who doesn’t love an adorable senior land hippo. We know we do and Baileys had some pretty amazing humans in her corner on her rescue journey.
As a senior dog and pitbull Bailey had very little chance of making it out of the high volume Carson shelter alive. She wasn’t going to stand out in the sea of younger dogs also vying for homes. But she had a Guardian Angel working on her release. Senior pups in shelters is almost always a death sentence. For unknown reasons Bailey was surrendered by her family after giving them her loyalty for 9 years. 9 years almost thrown away but we are so thankful for kind humans and networking cause Bailey got her big break.
Bailey has joined the crew going into North Kern State Prison. With her awesome people and dog to dog skills she’s going to teach those young pups a few things. During her 3 month program she’ll be looking for the perfect family to live out her retirement years. A family with no cats or small animals who will cherish her the way her 1st family should have. If you love the kindness a senior dog brings to a home please consider giving Bailey her forever.
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.
