Sex: Female

Breed: Pitbull

Estimated Date of Birth : 01/22/2022

She’s as sweet as candy and one of the gentlest souls we’ve ever met. Meet Penelope! This beautiful girl may have a tough looking exterior but there’s no spice in her personality. She’s all sugar and everything nice. Shes been an amazing momma with two very differently aged babies and although a touch shy loves human affection from every person she’s met. Shes just a kind and caring girl hoping to have her chance at a family that will love her for all her gentle qualities.

Penelope was found with her babies Peyton (6 months) and Presley (6 weeks) wandering the streets of Bakersfield. We’re sad that she was obviously forced to have multiple litters but thankful they made it to the county shelter where we saw them. This little family was sprung

and has been settling in at our ranch.

Penelope is just about finished with her motherhood duties and we can promise she’ll never have another litter again. This sweet girl will finally get her chance to live a life outside of caring for babies and we hope to find a loving family who can care for her. A home that will treat her like the beautiful princess she is and give her the forever love she should have had from the very beginning.



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.
