Jaime

Sex: Male

Breed: Chihuahua x

Age: 1 year old


We sprung this cutie from our local emergency vet VCA-Bakersfield.

Little Jamie was found by Good Samaritans with a compound fracture to his back leg and tail. This means he was found with breaks so bad the bone was protruding from his flesh. He was taken to Kern County Animal Services but because his injuries were so severe they transported him to the emergency vet for immediate care.

Jamie is a lucky little guy. We can’t imagine how painful his injuries were but the immediate care saved his life. Unfortunately his back leg and tail could not be saved and he lost both. He was due for release from the vet hospital and no one wanted to see him recover at the shelter so he joined our crew and went into foster care. Jaime has a long road to recovery but his sweet personality has stayed steadfast. We can’t wait to see him blossom with his 2nd Chance.


  • 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.
