Breed: Pomeranian x
Age: 8 years old
Fiona is an eight year old female Pomeranian cross breed. She found herself at the city shelter after she’d been picked up as a stray. She had a microchip so her stray hold was extra long as attempts were made to locate her family. Her family never showed up so she joined the Marleys Mutts crew. Fiona was adopted by a wonderful women but returned recently as her new mom passed away from Covid. We are devastated by this news and will honor her moms memory by ensuring Fiona finds another equally amazing home.
Fiona is sweet, social with dogs and all humans and both house and crate trained. She does like to door dart so a home that can ensure her safety around the front door will be a must.
Fiona has such a great temperament she’ll be evaluating for our next Pawsitive Change program on February 22nd. We feel the program will help with her door darting and know her happy go lucky personality will help some of the shy dogs going in. If she’s approved for the program she’ll go into N. Kern prison on March 8th and will stay in until she graduates in mid June. We will start accepting applications for Fiona closer to the time she’s scheduled to graduate from the program.
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.
