Breed: Lhasa Apso x
Estimated Date of Birth : 11/26/2021
Blunt force trauma origins unknown that is all we knew. Fritz was facing euthanasia for wounds too severe for the shelter to treat. He needed a oral specialist and that is something the shelter couldn’t provide and didn’t have the funds to pay for. So they did the only thing they could do, they put out a plea for help. We were the only rescue to say yes and with as hard as the rescue community has been hit we understood why!
A surgery requiring a specialist is not something most rescues can cover. Most just don’t have the reach to even raise those kind of funds but we did and the Mutt Militia like always came through! Fritz was rushed up to UC Davis and their amazing vet staff repaired his jaw. He’s spent the last several weeks recovering and is now ready to find his forever home.
This boy is incredibly grateful to be given a 2nd chance. He’s happy and playful and loves everyone he’s met both dog and human. He has an amazing personality and is ready to meet an equally amazing family. He’s ready for a 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.
