Paw Marley

Sex: Mal

Breed: Pitbull

Birth Date: 10/25/2021


We find the sweetest dogs in the shelter. Overlooked for many reasons…..size, breed, shyness. We are so thankful when we can give these overlooked pups an opportunity to have a wonderful life.


Paw Marley was one of those dogs. He sat at Kern County Animal Services for almost a month with no interest. A shy pitbull type dog really stands almost no chance of making it out of the shelter alive so we had to give this sweet boy the opportunity he wouldn’t have without rescue help. Paw Marley has quickly become a ranch favorite. We love all the dogs on our ranch but some are extra special. Paw Marley is beyond sweet. He’s a smart boy who’s quickly picking up on the basic obedience skills provided at the ranch. As he’s so shy we’ve been working on confidence building as well.


Paw Marley is a really great dog who just needed a chance and the time to be seen. We hope when you’re looking for your next perfect pup you see what we see and give Paw Marley a chance.


  • 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.
