Breed: German Shepherd x
Estimated Birth Date: 05/10/2022
Can you believe things have gotten so bad in our shelter system that puppies are now facing euthanasia?! It really has gotten that bad and the sad reality is that puppies are now at risk of loosing their lives. Both Charlie and Dennis are older puppies and were kennel mates at our city shelter. Sadly both pups were euthanasia listed after lingering at the shelter for over a month with no interest.
The shelter didn’t want to euthanize them but space is the issue. Without space the shelter simply can’t hold on to dogs indefinitely and sadly the dogs who’ve been there the longest are most at risk. Older puppies often have a harder time finding homes as they’ve lost the “cute” puppy factor and are a bit more rambunctious and bouncy than a much younger puppy. But these are the lives we pledge to save! Those most at risk and just needing a bit more time to find their perfect homes.
Charlie and Dennis are great dogs and ready to find families of their own. They were kennel mates at the shelter but are not bonded and will each be adopted separately. They’re both picking up basic training skills at the ranch quickly and both have the desire to please. They love all humans and other dogs and just want their chance at an amazing home and family. We hope you’ll give them the chance they’ve been waiting for.
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.
