Millie

Sex: Female

Breed: Border Collie x

Birth Date: 8/7/2021


She’s coming home. Paralyzed pups don’t have many options in the shelter system but we know we can help give them a safe place to land. Meet Millie our newest Wheelie.

She came into the shelter paralyzed from the waist down. X-rays revealed a pellet lodged directly into her spine. Yes some subhuman shot this sweet baby girl. We’ll never understand what causes a person to make such a terrible life altering choice but we are thankful Millie had the right people come into her life when she needed help the most. She’s safe and we’ll get her started in the right direction heading forward we promise!

Sweet Millie will be heading to our orthopedic specialist. We are hopeful they may be able to remove the pellet and improve her mobility. We are hopeful we can help this girl reverse some of the damage unkind humans caused.


  • 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.
