Breed: Akita/German Shepherd x
Estimated Date of Birth : 05/04/2023
You’re not seeing double and these two are absolutely twice as much fun! Meet BamBam and his sister Pebbles. Are they purebred akita pups? They could be but our guess is as good as yours so we’ll just call them the perfect blend of Akita and shepherd all mixed into one (or should that be two lol). Both are full of puppy antics and enthusiasm. They are so incredibly happy go lucky. Life is great and pretty darn exciting in their book. Their stint in the shelter didn’t dampen their spirits they’re just happy to be alive!
And they spent quite a bit of time waiting in our county shelter. Almost a month to be exact. Picked up by animal control as strays. As older pups could they have been a breeder dump? That could very likely be the case but we’ll never know and we are just thankful we had the space to get them both out in time!
They hit the ground running at our rescue ranch. Happy with their new digs and all the space to run and play they haven’t looked back. People lovers and people pleasers they’re both absorbing everything ranch staff teach them. They’re pretty good on leash and are picking up all sorts of basic obedience skills. They’re fun and playful and both really great dogs. We’re slowly starting to integrate them into play groups and we feel confident they’ll do great. BamBam and Pebbles are not bonded. We will be looking for individual adoptive homes for both. They may be twinning but they will have no problem thriving with separate families. If you’ve been looking for a new happy and fun loving friend to add to your pack consider giving BamBam or Pebbles their new home. They’d love to meet you!
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.
