Charlotte

Sex: Female

Breed: Chihuahua x

Estimated Birth Date: 2/22/2020

It’s hard to see the sun at the end of the tunnel when you’re as injured as Charlotte has been but we promise sweet girl you’re safe and it’s going to be alright.


Charlotte came into Kern County Animal Services with facial wounds and unable to use her back legs. Her injuries were at minimum several weeks old. We can’t imagine how terrified she had to be hurt, on the streets and with limited mobility but somehow she survived and we are determined to show her that life can still be amazing even with a disability.


X-rays revealed that Charlotte has several areas of disk compression in her back. Thankfully no breaks or fractures. The compression issues and the wounds on her face are consistent with a significant fall or being thrown. We’ll never know Charlotte’s full story but her new life is just beginning. She is able to stand so we are very hopeful she’ll transition into a spinal walker with time. If not we’ll get her fitted into a wheelchair and she’ll learn that you don’t need four legs for mobility or a amazing new life


  • 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.
