Lotus

Sex: Female

Breed: Pitbull X


Age: 2 years old


Even when it’s roots are in the dirtiest waters the Lotus produces the most beautiful flower. Such a perfect analogy for this beautiful girl!

Lotus found herself at our city shelter as a stray. Humans had chopped off her ears but they didn’t dampen her spirit or the beauty of her soul. You can see her zest for life sparkling in her rich brown eyes. Although her ear modifications where intended to make her look tough and mean we can see her beauty as it’s more than skin deep.

Lotus has lots of energy and it’s obvious that no one has taken the time to give her the guidance every dog needs. She needs training and that’s why our Pawsitive Change program will be perfect for her! Lotus will be joining the group going into CalCity prison. Our prison training program is 3 months long. The dogs going in learn basic obedience tasks and come out as better balanced pups making them more adoptable. We know Lotus is going to shine!



  • 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.
