Brandy

Sex: Female Breed: Chihuahua x Estimated Date of Birth : 12/15/2021

Our scared little sassy pants girls have turned into happy, wiggle butt, jumping beans! These pups are a riot and it really is amazing what a little time and a good foster home will do for an insecure dog. The shelter environment terrified these poor sweet girls and we are thankful a willing foster said yes. They want to be with people so badly! Their ability to trust is still a work in progress but they’ve made huge gains and we know with the right adopter and just a bit of patience they’re going to do amazing! We’ve named them Brandy and Sandy cause let’s face it cute little ladies need equally cute names. Brandy is the least shy of the two. She moves forward a bit faster than Sandy, but both have learned that they love the couch and after some initial shyness pets and attention are pretty nice too. They can be adopted separately or together. With their nervous energy we do feel it would help them come out of their shell quicker if their future homes had another confident happy dog to show them the ropes. Their perfect adopters will have the patience to give them the time they need to adjust and a calm enough environment so they don’t feel overwhelmed.


  • 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.
