We needed some fun happy go lucky pups for our Pawsitive Change Prison program and couldn’t think of a better choice than a few brown and tan Chihuahua mixes. Many don’t realize that Chihuahuas are often overlooked in our California shelters and the brown and tan colored ones are overlooked the most frequently. We have no idea why cause often people are overlooking some pretty amazing dogs!

Hedwig is about as awesome as they come! He’s happy and fun and pretty much what most families are looking for in the personality department. I mean who doesn’t love a cheerful and well adjusted dog! We pulled Hedwig and 2 of his kennel mates from our city shelter as they all had the same amazing personalities. These great personalities will help our more shy dogs in the program come out of their shells. And the training Hedwig receives is only going to make him more adoptable.

Hedwig will be joining the group going into North Kern Prison mid September. He will stay in until he graduates in December.

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.
