Looking for the sweetest dog EVER!!! Then look no further meet Shell!


This good girl is a joy! We have no idea why she ended up at our County Shelter because we just can’t see any reason why she wouldn’t be claimed by her family or adopted by a new family. She really is that amazing! She adores all humans and is great with other dogs. We’ve decided to make her even more amazing with a little bit of training.

Shell has joined the Pawsitive Change program at North Kern State Prison. Our trainers and inmate handlers will make sure she receives a solid basic training foundation in the 3 months she attends the program. Once she’s graduated she’ll not only be one of the sweetest dogs we’ve ever met but she’ll be well trained too.

If you’ve been looking for a dog with a great temperament and some basic training Shell just might be the dog for you!


  • 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.
