Sex: Male

Breed: Australian Shepherd x

Estimated Date of Birth : 01/27/2023

When beauty is combined with smarts you get Neptune! This sweet boy is stunning and has all the brains and fun you Aussie fans love about the breed. He’s high energy, enthusiastic and gorgeous! Definitely a winning combination for Pawsitive Change! This boy has joined the crew at Tehachapi State Prison. Once he’s completed the 3 month long program he’ll be looking for an active family willing to keep him challenged and enforce the boundaries he learns in prison.

Neptune may be a familiar face. He was adopted last summer as a younger pup but unfortunately that family wasn’t his perfect fit. There was too much going on in the home and neighborhood and it was a bad environment for this boy. He’s had a chance to decompress at our ranch and is doing great which means it’s time to set him up for success. Pawsitive Change will do just that.

Neptune is very affectionate and eager to please. He really just wants a job like all Aussies do. Do you like K9 sports? Looking for an agility partner? Want to learn a new hobby like dock diving? This boy would love all of those things and could be your new best friend! Have dogs? He loves them too especially other fun loving friends he can pal around with. If you’ve been looking for the perfect adventure buddy Neptune just might be the perfect fit for you!



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.
