Chappo

Sex: Male

Breed: Chihuahua X

Estimated Birthdate: 12/09/2012


Who doesn’t love an adorable little senior? And Chappo, this boy is a sweetheart! He found himself sitting at the city shelter and sadly like so many lost older souls his family never came for him. We couldn’t leave his happy face behind so he joined our small dog crew at the ranch.


Chappo is a doll. Not only is he the sweetest but he’s very human motivated and loves nothing more that to be carted around by anyone willing to carry him. He’s a great size at 14lbs. and gets along with other dogs. He’s a wonderful pup who would love an equally wonderful family that doesn’t mind giving a senior a chance. If you’re looking for a dog that’s past all the craziness of the puppy stage then this sweet boy is for you!


  • 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.
