Walnut

Sex: Male

Breed: Lhasa Apso x

Estimated Date of Birth : 10/14/2021


Everyone loves a fluffy little dog and Walnut is the best! This adorable little guy found himself dirty and abandoned at Kern County Animal Services. He smelled awful when we pulled him and his coat was matted and filthy. He’d obviously been on the streets for awhile but it was time for his luck to change!

Walnut has quickly settled in to foster care. He’s fabulous with both dogs and kitties alike and is a spunky, fun and loving boy. He’s playful and engaging but also knows when it’s time to settle and chill. His fosters are working on basic manners and house training skills and he has a positive willingness to please and listens really well. We think with just a little work this boy is going to be a perfect gentleman.

If you’re looking for cute, fluffy and sweet give Walnut a chance at adoption. Apply today!


  • 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.
