Breed: Rat Terrier Mix
Age: 7 Years
Vinny is a seven year old Rat Terrier mix breed. He was the longest resident at the Castaic Animal Shelter when we were there to rescue another dog. One of the volunteers stopped us while we were on a live video and getting ready to leave. She mentioned they had a dog there who was on the euth list and really needed out. We were told he had come in with his dog friend but his friend had been adopted. When we go to shelters we don't just choose the most adoptable little guys.
His foster has been working with him through some anxiety and uncertainty around other dogs. He's made friends with the fosters dogs and they’re now best buds. We can not wait to see a happy ending for Vinny. He's such a sweet deserving little man. Apply to adopt him today!
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.
