Labs are some of the most amazing dogs and Lucas is very true to his breed. This boy is wonderful and it really amazes us that he spent a month sitting at Kern County Animal Services with no interest. But he’s quickly making up for lost time and showing us what a good boy he is in foster care.

Lucas is beyond sweet. He’s a lover like most labs and is great at giving hugs. He’s good with other dogs and prefers to play with dogs a bit smaller than he is. He’s not a jumper and stays off the furniture in his foster home. He isn’t a licker, but can be a touch mouthy when excited like most young dogs tend to be. Over all he has a very calm personality and likes to lounge outside on a dog bed during the day. Currently his foster family is working on his leash walking skills and report that he is nondestructive in the home.

Lucas is a really good boy who just needed the chance to shine. His wonderful foster home is giving him that chance and we hope to find this sweet boy an equally amazing adoptive home he can call his very own!

  • 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.
