Age: 5 years old
Pip is 4lbs of personality! This little guy is super sweet and ready to find his forever home! An independent rescuer saved him when his breeder no longer wanted him. She reached out for help and we couldn’t say no.
Pio looks much older than he is. He’s only about 5-6 years old but as you can see in pretty rough shape. He has some eye issues we need to sort through and needs a dental as he has one rotten tooth in his mouth. We’ll have him fixed up in no time.
Yorkies aren’t often found in rescue and generally have a lot of interest when they are. With this little guys happy go lucky personality and small size we expect a big response. Pip is a total lap dog and good with other dogs. Due to his small size and the fragility of dogs his size we won’t place him with families with very young children. He’s currently working on his house training skills in foster care and hasn’t exhibited any behavioral issues. We do expect he’ll continue to need work on his house training skills once he’s adopted. Pip is absolutely adorable and we think he’s pretty perfect derpy tongue and all.

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.
