Breed: German Shepherd x
Estimated Birth Date: 3/11/2020
We’ve found some of the sweetest and most gentle souls in our shelter system. It really makes you wonder why their humans abandoned them. Peggy is one of the souls. She exudes kindness and came into the city shelter heavily pregnant. Just a kind dog in a horrible predicament. No mom wants to give birth in the shelter and a animal shelter is no place for babies to grow up. We got sweet Peggy out and she gifted us with 7 tiny perfect babies just shy of a week later.
And Peggy….well she remains gentle and kind even as a mother. We can only hope her wonderful temperament is passed down to her babies. For now Peggy will focus on her motherhood duties. We expect she’ll be adoption ready in approximately 3 months and a very lucky family will be able to give this sweet her the home she’s always deserved.
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.
