Phelps

Sex: Male

Breed: Pitbull

Age: 4 years old

My ability is stronger than my disability! P

Phelps, our silver bullet, is a testament to this statement. He may be just a bit different than your average dog but don’t tell him that! This sweet boy can do everything a normal bodied dog can do and he just might surprise you with his silver bullet speed.

Phelps thrives on structure and routine. He NEEDS structure and routine to be successful in a home environment. He’s perfectly crate and house trained and super affectionate with adults. He can not live with or be around children under 16 years of age no exceptions. He has a high prey drive and can not live with other dogs or any other animal. Basically he wants to he your one and only special boy.


Phelps doesn’t let his differences limit him. He’s a goofy ham that’s been waiting to find those special people to call his very own and we’d love to find a family that will let him live his life to the fullest! If you’d like to give a special needs dogs a chance at forever please apply to add Phelps to your family.




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.
