Olivia (Livi Love)

Sex: Female

Breed: Labrador Retriever x

Estimated Birthdate: 5/9/2020

There’s been a very long wait for this sweet girl but you know what they say about waiting and Olivia was definitely worth the wait!

Olivia (Livi Love) came to us almost 4 months ago. A broken, emaciated, shadow of a dog. Humanity had failed her. But we were there to lift her up at her lowest and slowly she has healed and learned to trust. Olivia gained much needed weight, underwent surgery to repair her damaged hip and rehab to strengthen what was broken. Her time in her wonderful foster home has shown us what a truly amazing dog she is. So gentle and kind to everyone in her foster family, even the smallest child. She’s a gentle misunderstood soul who longs for a kind and patient family of her very own.

Olivia remains a bit shy and will need time to warm up to strangers. She adores children. ADORES them! And we really want her future home to have a couple of kind children she can call her own. She’s mellow with a lo-key energy and house trained. Because of her previous hip injury she’ll never be an active dog and would do best in a home that doesn’t want an active partner. She’s more of a stroll around the park kind of a gal. Olivia is ready for adoption and we can’t wait to find her the perfect home.

Olivia’s adoption will include a free private session at Mountain Dog club in Tehachapi and a 20% discount off other services the club provides.

  • 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.
