Naked Nicky

Sex:  Male
Age:  10 plus
Breed:  Rat Terrier Mix
Naked Nicky is one of our longest residents in the Marleys Mutts family!  He has been in our care for over two years and it's his time to get his own family to love him!  Nicky has gone through the Pawsitive Change Prison program and graduated with his CGC.  As Nicky has gotten older he has developed a cataract in one eye and is losing vision in the other one making him partially blind.  He does really well with figuring out where everything is in a home within 24 hours with a few bumps into things here and there.  He also has alopecia so he has hair loss all over her body, the alopecia medication actually made it worse to where he lost all of his fur!  Nicky LOVES to snuggle in bed with you all day long!  It's his favorite thing to do so his perfect family would have to be open to co sleeping in bed with him.  He likes to lay his head on the pillow.  Nicky is good with other dogs, but he's a back of the pack kinda dog and does seem to get picked on by other dogs, but he has to be the first one fed or else he gets really cranky lol.  Nicky needs extra care for his skin and needs weekly exfoliating baths, he's really good during his baths and gets the zoomies after he gets out.  All in all, Nicky needs a home with someone home all day long who wants a lap dog and will take him with them wherever they go.  Please apply to adopt this wonderful old mutt today!

Jinora

Jinora  came into this world as part of a litter of 11 born to their pointer mix mom at Kern County Animal Services. Momma dog (Yue) was picked up as a very pregnant stray. The puppies were born while at the shelter and we pulled the entire litter and momma when the puppies were 2 days old.

Jinora’s perfect home would continue with her puppy training and socialization. They would be prepared for an active puppy and ensure her energy needs were met. Think Jinora would be the perfect fit for your family? Apply to bring her home today.

River

Sex: Male
Breed: Pitbull/lab X
Age: 2 years old
River is one of our Pawsitive Change dogs who just hasn’t been able to find the perfect fit. This poor guy has been returned twice and we’d love to find a family that understands his needs and can give him the forever home he deserves. River originally came from a litter of puppies that were born at Kern County Animal Services. His mother was unable to care for him or his brothers while at the shelter so he and his brothers were separated from her. We pulled the puppies and the momma dog as they had no adoption interest and the puppies were underage.
River has loads of obedience training from his time in Pawsitive change. He knows all of his basic commands, walks nicely on a leash and is both house and crate trained. He’s a great dog for the right home. Unfortunately poor River is a very insecure dog. This means new situations and loud noises scare him. He would not do well in a home with young active children. He also can be very nervous around men and would likely do best with a female adopter. Any single ladies looking for Mr. Right? Lol.
We’d love to finally find River his family. He’s been through so much in his short life he deserves to have a family that fits his needs and can give him a lifetime of happiness. So all you ladies looking for a gentlemen who is tall, dark, handsome and available apply to meet River today.
