Butterscotch

Sex: Female

Breed: Rottweiler/German Shepherd x

Estimated Birth Date: 5/29/2021

This soulful eyed girl got caught up in a rash of bad luck. Not only did she find herself homeless and on the streets but then she suffered a significant injury that resulted in the loss of her leg. We suspect she’d been hit by a car but will never know what really happened. We do know that our presence at the shelter officially turned her luck around.


Butterscotch is as sweet as candy and deserves the chance at a wonderful life we can provide for her. Currently she’s recovering from her injuries and adjusting to life on 3 legs. Her recovery won’t be quick but she’s definitely worth the wait!


  • 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.
