Wanda

Sex: Female

Breed: German Shepherd x

Estimated Birth Date: 10/01/2021


What do you do with an energetic young shepherd mix? Well you help channel that energy of course. Sweet Wanda found herself at Kern County Animal Services. We can only guess it’s because she was no longer a tiny cute puppy and her puppy like enthusiasm was too much for her previous family. If only she had been provided with the training she needed. That training might have kept her in her home but sadly many don’t provide their young dogs with the training they need to be amazing adult dogs.


But we can fix that! Wanda has joined the dogs and trainers in our Pawsitive Change program at Tehachapi State Prison. She’s going to learn all of the basic obedience skills she needs to make her the perfect family dog. Her training foundation will channel her energy in a positive way and hopefully attract the perfect adopter. If you’re looking for a gorgeous pup with some training behind her belt Wanda just may be the girl for you!


  • 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.
