Chocolate Thunder

Sex: Male

Breed: Pitbull x

Estimated Date of Birth : 01/02/2014

The sweetest old man, our very own Chocolate Thunder, is so incredibly thankful for the simple things in life. Simple things his former family, whoever they are, never gave him. He just wants to be part of a family and he’s not even picky about who that family is. He loves humans large and small, young and old. He’s fantastic with other dogs of all sizes. He literally doesn’t care so long as he can be a part of something. He knows all about inside things like the soft comfy couches and the wonderfulness that comes out of kitchens. He’s so in tune to family life it makes us wonder why his family never came for him.

He was found alone and wandering in a neighborhood by a Good Samaritan. This sweet old boy stayed by their house after they fed him. Probably hoping they found be his new family. He was super stinky, suffering from multiple skin infections and lesions and seemed to be totally deaf. How he didn’t get hit by a car with his lack of hearing we’ll never know. We’re so thankful he was able to stay safe and so thankful to the Good Samaritans who helped him as best they could.

He’s safe now with us and enjoying everything good and simple rescue had to offer. Unlimited scratches, yummy food, soft warm spaces and yes even his medicated baths are wonderful to him. He’s so incredibly kind and has been amazing with every dog and human he’s met. He’s a lucky boy and we are so lucky to be part of his journey. We’re getting his skin issues under control and hoping to get his weight down a bit and then this sweet old man will be ready to have a family of his very own. That’s the thing he wants the most and we know we can find him perfect humans who will never abandon him again.



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.
