Sex: Male

Breed: Pitbull

Age: 4 years old

Have you ever seen a dog that smiles? Well Cheeks is a grinner. He flashes his pearly whites almost daily and it’s pretty much the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.

Cheeks looks like a big guy but is really only about 60lbs. He came to us from City of Bakersfield Animal Care and Control after he’d been picked up as a stray like so many other pitties in our city. He LOVES people but can be dog selective so appropriate introductions are a must with new dogs to ensure compatibility. Cheeks has a high prey drive and wouldn’t do well in a home with kitties or other small animals.

This handsome lover is ready to find his perfect family. If he looks like the right fit for yours apply today.

  • 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.
