Orlando

Sex: Male

Breed: Border Collie x

Estimated Birth Date: 03/17/2022


Looking for smart? Well we’ve got you covered! Orlando is about as sharp as they come and he can thank his border collie heritage for those brains and his good looks. That same heritage ensured he’s got loads of energy and is up for anything you want to do. This sweet boy lingered at our county shelter for over a month. We couldn’t let him sit there for even a moment longer so he’s now officially one of our adoptable dogs at our rescue ranch.

Orlando has all the border collie energy and sadly no one has taken the time to help him channel it. He’s a great dog and with just a little guidance will be an amazing dog! Ranch staff are working to teach him basic obedience skills and the manners his former family neglected to help him with. In true border collie fashion he’s picking up everything quickly and in no time he’ll be that awesome dog we know he can be.


  • 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.
