Joshua

Sex: Male

Breed: Pitbull x

Age: 7 months old

Oh Joshua you are ALL puppy! Nothing makes us sadder than seeing a young life sitting in the shelter. And that’s exactly where we found Joshua. Just a baby and already discarded. But as a baby he has so much potential! Like most puppies Joshua is going to require a family committed to giving him the structure, rules and boundaries all puppies need. The potential is there Joshua just needs the right people to guide him!

Currently Joshua is residing at our ranch and has started working on the things puppies need to know to be good adult dogs. In true puppy fashion he is very distractible but time and repetition will improve his focus. He can be excitable on leash and when in a crate or kennel. He loves people but don’t let his puppy adorableness fool you what this pup needs is a firm approach and the opportunity to earn that affection. Because of Joshua’s puppy energy not all dogs love him. We’d require any dog in the home be present for introductions to ensure compatibility

Joshua would love an active family with the ability to continue the training we’ve already started. If you can be committed to giving him the structure and rules he needs apply today.


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.
