Brock

Sex: Male

Breed: Chihuahua x

Age: 2 years old


Brock is a super shy and insecure boy that longs for the perfect human to help him trust. We can’t imagine what happened in his life to make him so nervous but he is skittish, scared and desperate for acceptance. Shy dogs often blossom into the most amazing and loyal dogs and we know if Brock is given time and patience he’s going to be amazing!


Brock was found at our city shelter overlooked because of his shyness and the black color of his coat. Black dogs are 50% more likely to not make it out of the shelter system and we knew we had to change this boys odds.


Brock loves other mellow dogs and wants to love people too but his fear takes over. He needs a quiet, calm, child free home to decompress at his pace. He needs a home that understands that patience pays off big time with shy dogs. If given the time he needs to feel safe this little guy will be your very best friend and a amazing loyal companion. We think you should give him a chance.



  • 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.
