Gilbert

Sex: Male

Breed: Poodle

Birth Date: 8/2/2021


Who doesn’t love a happy little poodle? And Gilbert is the happiest of them all! This cutie came in to Kern County Animal Services completely matted and with a bunch of other dogs. Even though his situation was pretty crummy he remained happy through it all. We rescued the entire kennel of pups and Gilbert is settling in to foster care.


Gilbert is just a touch shy but adjusts quickly and has still remained a happy and sweet boy. He’s working on his house training skills and has been responsive to corrections when he makes a mistake. He’s dog friendly but larger dogs can intimidate him until he gets to know them. He loves people and is very motivated to please. He will have a beautiful poodle coat once his fur has grown out and we know his happy go lucky personality will appeal to most families. If you’re looking to add some poodle joy to your home apply today!


  • 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.
