Benny (Adoption Pending)

Sex: Male

Breed: Labrador Retriever/ Pitbull x

Estimated Birth Date: 5/23/2021


Benny like so many black pit bull mixes didn’t stand much of a chance of getting out of the shelter through adoption. The sad truth is that black dogs and pitbulls are euthanized with much greater frequency than any other dogs in a shelter environment. We’re not sure why because both can be amazing dogs!

And Benny is an amazing dog! This boy is one giant puppy who loves everyone and everything he meets! He really just wants to be everyone’s new best friend. He has amazing dog to dog communication and is very eager to learn everything ranch staff are teaching him. He has a fun playful lab type personality and we know he’s going to make his future adoptive family very happy!


  • 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.
