Breed: Labrador Retriever x
Age: 8-10 years old
We love our frosted faces and Sophie is no exception! This gorgeous girl was such a shelter favorite they kept her for 2 months advocating and networking her trying to get her out. Well it worked and we are happy to say she’s a Marleys Mutt!
Sophie is so incredibly kind and easy to be around and take care of. She has a calm energy, yet is sweet and alert. She loves butt scratches, always wagging her tail gently and looking at you with her loving eyes and a big smile on her face!
Sophie is 100% safe with cats and little dogs, in fact she gets along with all dogs. She can be a little intimidated by large dogs that have too much energy and don’t respect her space, but it is very easy to manage, and after introductions she is cool! Sophie is house broken and crate trained. She even puts herself to bed in her crate in the evening, she has a good internal clock!
She does not bark and is just the easiest, low key, kindest companion anyone could ask for.
Sophie was rescued minutes from being euthanized at the shelter as she’d been overlooked for several months. The shelter staff did everything they could to save her life, and we were so happy to be able to help her. This girl is worth her weight in gold.
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.
