Mrs. Gray

Sex: Female

Breed: Pitbull

Estimated Birth Date: 6/30/2010

There’s not many things more heartbreaking than seeing a sweet old soul behind the shelters cold kennel bars. Their eyes often signal defeat and many just give up resigned to whatever fate has in store for them. These souls have given the best years of their lives to someone who didn’t even value them enough to make sure their golden years were spent feeling appreciated, wanted or loved.

Mrs. Gray’s eyes spoke volumes. They told of a hard life, much of what we could visibly see with the old injuries that had healed but left their marks on her body. Her eyes expressed pain, fear and rejection. She had all but given up and that’s why rescue is so important. We give these lost and forgotten dogs a chance. And that’s exactly what we’ve given Mrs. Gray. She’ll have a chance to live out what time she has left in the comfort of a home with a future family that will value her life with nothing expected in return. That gift is priceless.

And you know what she’s a really, really great dog! She’s thriving in foster care and showing us all the things her previous family should have valued. She’s a kind gentle girl who is wonderful with both other dogs and children. She wants nothing more than to be with her people, give and receive a bit of kindness and sleep the day away like it’s her full time job. She’s perfect and we know someone out there will give her the chance she never got.


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.
