Barbara Mandell

Sex: Female

Breed: Pitbull

Date of Birth : 07/31/2021

What we noticed 1st about Barbara was how incredibly sweet and mellow she is. For us it made her stand out in the sea of dogs begging us to notice. She just looked at us with her big brown eyes pleading for us to see her. Pleading with us to give the 8 tiny lives she was responsible for the chance to live. We couldn’t say no. And what a fantastic momma this girl has been! We couldn’t imagine if we hadn’t given her a chance.

The influx of moms and babies in shelters breaks our hearts but the pittie moms and babies break our hearts even more! They stand almost no chance of getting out of the shelter simply because of their breed and the sheer number of dogs needing help right now. If only people would stop producing puppies. If only people would educate themselves and not believe the stereotypes. If they’d do those two simple things more dogs like Barbara Mandell and her babies would have a future.

Barbara raised her babies and they’re all ready for adoption. This means she’s ready for adoption too. She’s beyond sweet and one of the best pitties we’ve had the pleasure of knowing. She’ll make an amazing family member with her balanced personality and we hope you’ll give her a chance. Momma dogs often take longer to find homes and we’re crossing our fingers that her sweet face and disposition will capture just the right heart. You won’t be disappointed.


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.
