Age: 7 years old
Sprout was originally pulled from the city shelter as part of our Mutt Moving crew. This group was scheduled to go to Canada. But Sprout had other plans. This poor guy started having seizures. Transport trips can be long and stressful so with Sprout’s current medical status we just weren’t comfortable sending him so we got him settled into foster care instead.
Sprout has been to the vet for the initial seizure and we are currently tracking future seizure activity to see if he’s a candidate for medication. Thankfully this tiny guy has no idea he’s different. He’s happy and social and just a bit excited to make friends with all his new canine pals. Because of his seizure activity and small size we feel a home with older respectful children would be the best fit.
If you love tiny, social Chihuahuas and aren’t scared away by a pup that may need lifelong medication apply to bring this cute little one home.
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.
