Shy sweet girl we promise things will get better. We can’t imagine how overwhelming it must be to not know where your original family went. We can’t imagine how scary the shelter must have been….and we wonder if you knew how much your age, breed mix and timid personality put you at risk in that scary shelter environment. Your eyes tell us that the world hasn’t been kind to you in your short life and we are determined to show you just how amazing it can be!

People can be overwhelming, although you really want to trust, but dogs, you absolutely love other dogs. So that’s how we’re helping you to trust more. We’re pairing you with confident pups so you can see their interactions with us. Those positive interactions are helping you to realize that people really are good and it’s ok to enjoy us too. You’re improving in leaps and bounds and we know with the right family who continues to build your trust you are going to be absolutely amazing! We wish more people gave the shy dogs a chance.

Nelly is ready for her chance so let’s hope that perfect patient family comes along and decides to make her theirs. If you love the shy pups please apply to make Nelly part of your family



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.
