Breed: Labrador Retriever x
Age: 4 years old
Octavia is part of the large group of dogs we brought over from both Morocco and Lebanon prior to the CDC import ban. Since arriving on US soil Octavia has settled right in to life at the ranch. She’s very sweet and just a little shy. She does well with most dogs, as long as they share a similar temperament. We wouldn’t put her with dominant dogs. She's very happy go lucky and gentle and is moderately active.
We feel Octavia would be a great fit for our Pawsitive Change Prison program. Our goal is to evaluate her for the next round and we are hopeful she’ll be the right fit for the group we send into North Kern prison. We don’t have a start date for the next round of Pawsitive Change but will update once we do so you can continue to follow her journey.
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.
