Hello, Captain!

Captain was saved from the shelter just in the nick of one after spending A YEAR in the shelter! Thank goodness the shelter staff never gave up hope! He’s an incredibly loving dog, who does well with others, especially if they are of his energy level. He is high energy, despite being 10 years old, and likes to be fulfilled by playing ball and running. He’s a big ole boy at 80 lbs but can easily move in and out of a vehicle. He behaves more like a 3-4 year old. He’s is your typical American shelter mutt, meaning he is mixed with just about everything, but aren’t we all Mutts? Captain is the kind of dog who won’t go a day without thanking you for saving his life! Be a part of this holiday miracle and apply to adopt captain today!

Hooch in the Media

The holidays are all about helping others, and no one embodies that spirit more than Hooch. Rescued in 2013 by Zach Skow, founder of Marley’s Mutts Rescue, the 6-year-old French Mastiff was found with cropped ears, a broken tail, and no tongue—he was underweight and severely malnourished. Since his miraculous recovery, he has dedicated his life to helping humans by working with special needs children—and showing everyone who meets him an incredible capacity for forgiveness. We chatted with Zach about Hooch’s past and what he thinks humans can learn from his story.

Rachel came to be a Marleys Mutts dog after she was found with six of her puppies at Kern County Animal Services.  She had clearly been used to breed multiple litters of puppies and just left in a back yard for all of her young life.  After her puppies were old enough to be adopted, Rachel moved into a foster home and then moved up to our Rescue Ranch.  She is a sweet loving girl who just needed to learn the basics of being a dog, and a companion as she had no idea on how to be either of them.  She has come a long way since we found her dumped in the shelter!  Rachel has a bit of a prey drive and is not a fan of cats or other small dogs, so she would not do well living in a home with either.  She is looking for a home as an only dog, or with another confident big dog to keep her company and be her best buddy.  We think she will do best in a home that is willing to continue to invest in working on training with her so she can be successful and happy in life.  If you are a fan of the bully breeds with that are just rough around the edges please apply to adopt Rachel today!
