Gilbert is the shy one of the bunch. Minimal human interaction has made him shy but it’s nothing lots of positive social interaction won’t help. We know we can help this sweet boy be the happy puppy he was meant to be. Ranch staff are setting him up right with a foundation in the basics and this extra training will boost his confidence and in turn improve his trust of the world around him. He also has age on his side and his youthful curiosity won’t allow him to be a shy boy forever. Theres just too much fun to be apart of.

Gilbert, his siblings Becky and Arnie and mom Bonnie were all found together wandering the streets of Tehachapi. A Good Samaritan picked them up so they wouldn’t get hit or become victims to the elements or wildlife. They completed a stray hold but sadly their former family never came for them. Luckily we had room and the entire family is now calling our rescue ranch home.

Gilbert loves his siblings and running around the yard space at our ranch. He’s an incredibly sweet boy who wants so badly to trust. He has the cutest poofy face and looks like a living teddy bear. We are hopeful to find Gilbert a family who will continue his training and confidence building and give him the forever home he deserves.



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.
