Breed: Terrier/Chihuahua x
Age: 4.5 months old
She’s just a baby and unfortunately she’s coming to us already broken. This tiny girl is sporting a messed up hip. At this point we don’t know if it’s a congenital issue or it somehow became dislocated. What we do know is that she needs us and with the mutt-militia’s help she’ll get the care she needs.
Greta is tiny, broken and just the sweetest, happiest puppy you’ll ever meet. We’ve got her set up in foster care and are waiting for her vet appointment with our orthopedic specialist to see how we should proceed. There is a chance she will lose her leg but we’ll know more after her appointment. Follow our social media pages to get updates on little Gretas care and progress.
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.
