Who likes the girls who can hang with all the big boys? Well then Petunia is your girl! At almost 70lbs shes large enough to keep up and her rough and rowdy play style is the perfect match for those rough and rowdy boys!
Petunia came to us from City of Bakersfield Animal Care and Control after she’d been picked up as a stray. Like so many Pitbulls in our county her family never showed up for her and she lingered in the shelter because of her breed. We don’t believe her breed should define her chance at an adoptive home so she joined our crew at the ranch.
Petunia loves humans! She’s incredibly sweet and people oriented. She’s playful and fun but her rowdy play style isn’t always the best fit for every dog. She’ll need the appropriate introductions with new dogs to ensure compatibility. She does have some resource guarding when other dogs are present so a family willing to provide the appropriate rules and boundaries will be a must.
If you love the girls that keep up with the guys look no further and apply to make Petunia part of your family.
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.
