Max is as big as he is stunning! He’s always been a beloved family member. He’s incredibly sweet and such a loyal boy. He loves humans of all ages and previously lived with both large and small dogs. He was very gentle with everyone.

In an instant Max’s entire world changed. His human mom Jazzy, one of our long time volunteers and supporters, unexpectedly passed away. This left both Max and his buddy Sable in need of placement. We couldn’t leave our friends dogs behind so both have joined us at our rescue ranch. But here’s the thing. Our ranch is a ranch and dogs are housed in a kennel type environment with lots of outside time. Max and Sable are use to living inside a home as part of a family. They’ve already had so much loss we really would prefer if they could go in to a foster or adoptive home. We think this sort of transition would be easiest on them and what Jazzy would prefer if she was still with us. They can go into homes as a pair or separately.

Max is a really good boy experiencing the loss of his home and mom. He deserves the very best chance of finding a new forever with an amazing family. Jazzy would never give up her dogs and we are dedicated to finding them the best homes and honoring everything Jazzy gave back to us.



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.
