Breed: Poodle x
Estimated Birth Date: 12/22/2017
So many great dogs end up in our shelter system and we’ll never understand why. Perry White is one of those dogs. Brought into our city shelter in deplorable condition this sweet boy was matted beyond belief and suffering from a nasty skin infection that left him partially bald. Someone didn’t even provide basic vet care to this poor boy and really there isn’t an excuse for that. The vet staff at the shelter cleaned him up and he’s currently in foster care recovering.
We are still sorting out his skin issues which are causing lesions to develop on his skin but with the appropriate vet care and time we’ll get Perry healed, help his fur to grow back and get him adoption ready.
Perry has quickly attached himself to his foster mom. He loves to be carried around but has a playful side too. He’s quickly figuring out house manners and crate training skills and with his willingness to please he’ll get it down. He’s good with other mellow dogs and we feel he’d do best with older respectful children. Perry still needs some time to heal from his skin issues but if you’d like to be considered as a possible forever home for this sweet boy once he’s ready for adoption get those applications in.
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.
