Benji

Sex: Male

Breed: Terrier x

Estimated Birth Date: 5/5/2020


How about some terrier cuteness for you? Benji is pretty adorable and sadly his cute little self found himself broken and sitting at our county shelter. Lucky for him we’re good with broken and we feel confident we’ll get this little guy on his road to recovery in no time.


Currently Benji is hanging out in one of our wonderful foster homes. He is scheduled to meet with our orthopedic specialist to check the healing on his leg and make sure we’re on the right path. We expect his recovery process will take several months but in the meantime Benji isn’t letting his injuries get him down. He’s doing all the fun things our uninjured dogs do and showing us you can be hurt but still have a wonderful attitude.


  • 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.
