We’re not sure why this big ol meathead hasn’t been snapped up yet but we’d love to see Choco enjoy his retirement years in a home of his own. This big boy has been with us for over a year. We originally pulled him from the City Shelter along with 8 other dogs during our Give Big Kern fundraiser last year. Choco is a lovable hunk who is past the craziness of puppyhood and ready for a soft bed and of course all the toys which he would prefer not to share.

We hate that it’s taking so long for him to find his people. Senior dogs thrive in home environments and Choco would love a life away from the craziness of the ranch. He’s very affectionate and loves people and for the most part just ignores other dogs. He’s very toy motivated and still has some spunk for those who love the seniors but also want a dog that enjoys playtime. He’s a great boy and he’s more than ready to find his perfect home.

So if you have a soft spot for the thick boys and would love to give a senior pup some amazing last years apply to make Choco part of your family.


Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:

  • 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.
