Sweetie

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Yorkie Mix
Age:  2 Years
Sweetie is exactly as her name says, sweet and calm. When she first became a Marley’s Mutt she was covered in lice and had skin issues requiring her to be shaved. Now that her hair has grown back and her skin has healed, she is soft and willing to cuddle once she gets to know her family. While she can be playful at times, her favorite thing to do is be a couch potato expert extraordinaire and look out a window.  Sweetie is not very vocal, is crate trained, walks on leash, housebroken, and doesn’t mind the small dogs like her. She will take her time to get to know a big dog. Regular grooming is a must with her hair. If you think you have the perfect couch with a view for Sweetie, please apply today!

Margarita

Sex:  Female
Breed:   Chihuahua
Age:  10+
Margarita was rescued from Kern County Animal Services as a senior who made it seem as if she only had a few days left on earth and we wanted to give her the best last days ever.  Turns out Margarita was only faking!  She got out of the shelter and the very same night let her spunky self shine and turns out wasn't sick at all!   She let the world know that she was super unhappy being locked up.  This swinging senior chihuahua is what we like to call a drama queen!  Drama queen or not, she is one sweet cuddly chihuahua who is looking for her own castle to be doted upon and spoiled in.   Margarita is good with other dogs, but chooses to spend most of her days napping, sunning herself and enjoying hand fed treats.  If you are looking to add in an awesome senior dog to your pack who deserves to be spoiled and loved on, apply for Margarita today!

Sassy

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix
Age:  2 Years
Sassy is a long-legged supermodel of a dog who is limitlessly loyal and loving to her people. She is 2 years old and has had at least one litter of puppies and still essentially a puppy herself in many ways. She follows basic commands and walks well on a leash but does need some work with pulling when she gets excited. She is crate trained but would do best in an active home where she can get regular exercise and playtime.   Sassy is currently working with one of our trainers to learn even more things to help her become the well rounded dog we know she is.  Shes just fabulously excited for all things in life, but just needs to learn how to play it cool.  If you're looking for a spunky playful gal, apply to adopt Sassy today!

Liberty

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Sher Pei
Age:  8 Years
I may look rough around the edges, but we all know you don’t judge a book by its cover!  My name is Liberty and I was gloriously rescued on July 4th by some pretty sweet people. Since then, I have been able to let my true self shine. I am really chill and low maintenance. I love to lie around the house or in my crate on comfy beds and greet humans of all sizes when they get home. Other dogs don’t bother me either. My skill set and qualifications include basic commands, walking nicely on leash, crate training, and car rides for fun.   Also, since I’m a grown up dog, I am housebroken.   So, if you are looking for a grown up dog to chill with, love on, and be loved by, I am 100% your lady and you should not wait to apply to adopt me!!

Coco

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Boxer
Age:  8 Years
The magnificent Coco is finally on the market looking for her furever love!  If you remember a couple of our posts when she came into our foster care program, Coco was found wandering the street of Bakersfield emaciated, covered in ticks and had a huge tumor growing on her shoulder.  Well this lovely lady has come a long way in a short period of time!  Not only has she gotten all the blood suckers removed from her, her giant tumor is gone too!  Not to mention she's had some great food which has filled her out nicely, but her coat is looking pretty awesome too!  This gal still has a lot of life left to give someone and is just waiting for that boxer fan to come find her.  Are you that person looking for some senior love from a brown eyed gal?  If so apply for Coco today!

Amy

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Lab Terrier Mix
Age:  2 Years
Welcome Amy to the Mutt Family!  Amy hales from South Korea and was a meat trade dog.  Luckily for her, she was saved by some wonderful people in the rescue community and ended up here in Southern California.  By the time she made it to the US, the rescue learned that Amy was pregnant with a litter of puppies.  Amy gave birth to a a litter of puppies and was a wonderful mom, but the rescue found out that Amy was positive for heartworm.  Once the puppies were weaned Amy was able to start her long slow journey of heartworm treatment and survived.  Talk about being a survivor, this dog is the real deal when it comes to surviving some incredible odds in life!
Since Amy didn't have any good socialization or interaction from humans during her short years in South Korea, Amy will need someone who is willing to take the time to go slow with her and show her how to be a dog.  Amy hasn't met many kids yet, but we think she will be o.k. in a home with kids in their teens.  This girl just needs a nice quiet slow paced home that will give her the space to learn how to trust the new human in her life.  Amy is a wonderful dog who is most deserving of the happy ending.  Please apply to adopt her today.

Belle

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Sherpei
Age:  2 Years
Belle is one of our resident smoosh faces that was rescued from Kern County Animal Services with her mother, Liberty, on the 4th of July.  She came into our care with problems with both of her eyes that were causing her some pain.  Luckily for her the Mutt Militia is just what she needed to help her out with her problem.  Turns out she had inverted eye lashes that were causing her pain and irritation.  She has successfully undergone surgery to correct her eye lids and turn her eye lashes out so no more pain and irritation.  Now this girl is seeing life from a very different view point and loving every minute of it!  Belle is an absolute love muffin and loves cuddling on the couch with people.  She is a people dog and absolutely adores kids!  In fact so much, that we think she prefers kids to adults in most cases.  Belle also loves most other dogs as well and is learning crate training with her foster brothers and sisters.  Its not her favorite thing in the world but eating dinner in it makes her day.  This girl didn't understand what toys were when she first came to our foster care program but she is now learning how to have some fun with toys!  We also found out that Belle is a water dog!  She absolutely loves playing in water and swimming no matter what size of pool she can find, she will have the best time ever!   Belle is looking for a family with kids and a pool (even kiddie sized) to make her life complete, if that's you please apply to adopt her today!

Stormy

Sex:  Female
Breed:  Pitbull Mix
Age:
Hey guys, Stormy here. I’m looking for a person to take over and provide endless snuggles to. As you can see here I’m fashionable AF and could provide you with loads of new followers on your Instagram if that’s your thing. I have a few dog friends but I don’t like hanging out with everyone. I guess you could say I’m an introverted extrovert or something like that. I love kids so if you want me to learn how to babysit I’m sure I could figure it out. I’m like a baby seal so please make sure some beach trips are in my future. I mean, if you had a pool I could swim in I’d never leave your place in case you’re interested in adopting a stage 5 clinger, I’m your gal. Some a-hole ran me over with a tractor so I can’t go on long walks, but hey that’s how I keep my girlish seal shaped figure. I know how to bark and scream at the same time which not all dogs can do so I’m basically a unicorn. I’ll keep every lizard and squirrel out of your yard for ya. Just doing my part over here, you’re welcome. I have a lot going for me so don’t waste anytime and put in an adoption application for me. I’m currently splashing around in Tehachapi, CA. I’m always down for a road trip with you if you live out of state.  Apply to become my best friend below today!

Smalls

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Age:  3 Years
Hi Mutt Militia my name is Smalls, but I have a big heart. I enjoy laying outside on a blanket, but really enjoy laying on your lap, couch or in front of your feet. I’m very good on a leash, enjoy walks and learning some commands so I can be a good ambassador. I meet new humans daily and I don’t mind it and everyone says I’m a good dog. I enjoy being around kids and love to lick their hands and face, but stop when asked. I don’t bark or growl when the door bell rings. I would love to be your new BFF. 🐶❤ If you are looking for a little sweet lap lizard, please apply to adopt Smalls today!
