Emily

Sex: Female

Breed: Terrier x

Estimated Birth Date: 4/12/2020

There are good mommas and then there are amazing mommas and Emily is just that! Her tiny 12lb body took care of 6 wild and rambunctious puppies for 7 weeks. She didn’t complain and she didn’t even get grumpy. She was absolutely wonderful!


She and her babies were dropped off at Kern County Animal Services. We’re not sure why their family didn’t want them but we suspect they were over the work raising that many dogs can bring. The great news is that Emily and her babies now have a chance to find amazing new homes that won’t consider them a burden. Emily is settling into foster care and will never have to be a mother again. She’s super duper sweet and just a touch shy and we know we can find her the perfect forever home.


  • 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.
