We fell in love with this big boy and know you will too! Curly is one of several older puppies who were sadly on the euthanasia list at our city shelter. The shelters in our area have been so significantly impacted by the dog overpopulation issues that even puppies are at risk. Shelters don’t want to euthanize these babies but when they are bursting at the seams and have no adoption or rescue options to get the dogs out they are left with no choice.

Curly was one of the lucky ones. He and 2 others made it out and to our ranch that day. Curly is as sweet as he is floppy and big. He’s very submissive with people and just wants to please so bad. He has awesome dog to dog communication and is doing fabulous in our play groups. Basically he’s a really good puppy and just needed a chance to be seen. If you like what you see Curly would love to go home with you. Apply today!


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.
