Loretta Lynn

Sex: Female

Breed: German Shepherd x

Estimated Birth Date: 01/02/2023

Did you know that shepherds, pitties and huskys are some of the most overlooked breeds in the shelter system? Now add to that the massive influx of dogs our shelters are seeing. It’s a recipe for disaster! Things are so bad that even puppies are at risk of euthanasia. Beautiful puppies like Loretta who are in their formative years are growing up and then dying in the shelter. It breaks our hearts but thankfully we can help some of these young guys get out and have a 2nd Chance through our Pawsitive Change Prison program.

Loretta lacked some vital social skills when we pulled her. Her communication with other dogs wasn’t great and this basically guaranteed she would be overlooked in a shelter environment. She needed the time rescue could give her and the training Pawsitive Change can provide. That’s exactly what we’ve set her up with. Time, positive exposure and guidance will turn this sweet girl into the amazing pup we know she can be.

Loretta’s learned so much in her short time with us. She is now able to play with most of the other puppies at our ranch and has turned into a total love bug! She’s fun, playful and social. Everything you’d expect in a growing puppy. Pawsitive Change is going to take her training to the next level! Once she’s completed the program at Tehachapi State Prison she’ll be ready for adoption. If you’ve been looking for a sweet shepherd pup with training under her belt Loretta just might be the one for you. Come on give her that chance. Shes ready to meet you!


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.
