You say you want a shepherd but you can’t handle the size? Well we’ve got you covered….Meet Fancy! At just 23lbs she’s the miniature shepherd you never knew you needed. She’s tiny and adorable and oh so fluffy. She doesn’t just have the cuteness factor going for her. This little girl is a sweetheart! She’s super duper friendly and that makes her even more of a doll.

Can you believe this sweet tiny girl was adopted and then returned from the Lancaster Shelter? Yup that’s right her adoptive family failed her just like the family who initially abandoned her. Returned dogs get even less time in our shelter system. By returning her that family basically ensured she’d be placed on the euthanasia list. We couldn’t let that happen. We were already at the shelter pulling xtra large dogs so an extra 23lbs wasn’t going to take up that much more space.

And Fancy is so grateful for her 2nd Chance. She shows us every day when she climbs into our laps and gives sweet little cuddles. She really LOVES people! She’s good with other dogs as well. She has a very kind energy about her that other dogs seem to enjoy. Ranch staff have been working on her leash skills (she’s excelling) and building up her confidence on stairs. Fancy is ready to find her perfect forever home. If you’ve been looking for just the right smaller sized pup she’s definitely the girl for you.


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.
