Sex: Female

Estimated Birth Date: 1/29/2021


Have you ever met a rescue dog who can smile?

Wait for it…..

Meet Smiley, ladies and gents! She’s fast, she’s beautiful , she’s amazing!


This active girl like so many wonderful dogs was picked up as a stray and taken to our city shelter. Our best guess is that someone adopted a cute puppy and once that cute puppy was older and more active never provided that puppy with the training they needed to be a great dog. Our Pawsitive Change Prison program can fix that! And that’s exactly where Smiley is headed. She’ll be joining the crew going into California City State Prison in the next couple of weeks. What this beauty lacks in manners she’ll gain in the 3 months she’s in. Those skills will make her pretty amazing for a fun and active family looking for an equally fun pup.

Smiley would also love another happy and playful dog in her future home. She’d enjoy both a human and canine adventure partner and we hope the skills she learns in prison will find her just that.


  • 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.
