Chopin

Sex: Male

Breed: Pitbull

Estimated Birthdate: 3/9/2019


What a handsome hunk this dude is! Meet Chopin! This gorgeous boy found himself at our city shelter. As a bully breed and with his black coat his chances of getting out of the shelter were pretty slim but we saw a great dog with lots of potential so had to give him the chance he so deserved.

Chopin needed the opportunity for adoption and by joining our Pawsitive Change Prison program we can help him gain the skills to be an amazing dog with lots of adoption possibilities. Chopin has joined our crew going into North Kern prison. He’ll be in for 3 months and will graduate with a solid training foundation. Once he’s out he’ll be ready to find his perfect forever home.

Chopin will be looking for a pitbull savvy home. He can be a touch bossy in play groups but loves to play and interact and responds to corrections by both humans and other dogs well. His responsiveness to training means with a little fine tuning he’s going to be an amazing family member.


  • 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.
