Dolores

Sex: Female


Breed: Pitbull


Estimated Date of Birth : 12/06/2020


She wears the scars of a society plagued with disregard! Disregard for responsibility, disregard for value, disregard for life! How would she ever stand a chance in a society like that!!!! And she didn’t. Bred until her body was unrecognizable. Discarded when she no longer had a use. She was valued only for what she could give and what she gave made her owners money. This is the life so many dogs endure. It’s not a life we’d wish on our worst enemy but “man’s best friend” experiences this life time and time again.


Dolores lived through the worst humanity had to offer. She held her head high and tired to be brave but that wasn’t enough to save what she fiercely protected….her puppies. Every single one died during her time at the shelter. She was failed in the worst kind of way. She couldn’t even take solice in motherhood. She had nothing and so we give her something she can live for a chance at life. Dogs like Dolores rarely make it out of the shelter environment. With her breed, color and altered body she was guaranteed a death sentence. A death sentence she did nothing to deserve.


Dolores is currently decompressing at our rescue ranch. She’s been through unthinkable trauma. Although scared she’s beyond sweet and just needs time to know and trust the new people she meets. She has made a lot of progress in the last week and is now giving kisses and letting ranch staff pet her. She is still very nervous but with time and patience we know she’ll be an amazing dog. She wants to engage with people so bad eventually that desire and all the good experiences her future holds will change her for the better. Love heals all and we know love is exactly what Dolores needs.

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.
