Dexter

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Pomeranian cross
Age:  7 Years
Dexter had a rough life and will require a patient and understanding home. He lived with the same family for 7 years. The adult members of the family moved away and left the college age children to care for the dogs and the house. As college kids they didn’t have the funds to adequately care for the dogs or their medical needs and much of Dexters care didn’t happen. He came to us with significant flea and tick allergies including hair loss. He had imbedded foxtails in both his ears and his mouth and he had a nasty abscess on his neck that had been untreated. Dexter was unsocialized to anyone outside of his immediate family and the other much larger dogs in the house picked on him so he was isolated.
When he came to us he was a mess. We got the medical stuff handled and started working on his trust. He is a very insecure dog. It took him over 2 weeks to trust his foster family. He now loves his foster mom but continues to have trust issues with people he doesn’t know. He will react negatively and protectively until he feels comfortable with strangers. Although there are children in his foster home their activity levels can make him nervous and jumpy. He seems to have the hardest time trusting men. While he for the most part gets along with the dogs in his foster home he has a tendency to pick on those that are much smaller than he is, probably emulating the behaviors he experienced in his previous home.
Dexters ideal home would be child free. It wouldn’t have dogs under 6lbs, Dexter is about 10lbs. His adopter would be patient and understand that he won’t love and trust a new person right away. His perfect home would continue to socialize him in the community. Dexter thrives with consistency and boundaries. He’s house trained and crate trained. He LOVES toys and plays fetch. If you think you have the perfect home for a pup with a bit of a checkered past apply to bring Dexter home today.

Doug

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Cattle Dog Mix
Age: 2-3 Years
I’m Doug the dog. Sadly I’m no longer able to live with my best friend because he’s not able to care for me anymore. He’s completely heartbroken over it but relieved that I ended up at Marley’s Mutts because they promised him they’d find the best home for me. I’m scared being here but I know with time I’ll be more comfortable with all the new changes happening in my life. I’m a bit weary of people right now because I’m not sure who to trust but when you spend some time walking me and showing me your safe then I’ll stick to you like glue. I come with free training to help me transition into my new home and so you can show me how to gain confidence. The amazing staff at the ranch is helping me right now and each day I learn to trust a little more. I’m a really sweet boy I’ve just had a rough start at life. Please consider helping me and welcoming me into your home. I’ll forever be grateful to you.

Lenny

Sex:  Male
Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Age: 8 Years
You're looking at 14 pounds of solid loving at the young age of 8 years
old. Lenny is what you would call, a limited edition, one of a kind! He can be
classified as a universal lover mutt!   Lenny came to us listed as a male, but after noticing a vital part of his anatomy missing along with a really bad bladder infection......we found out that Lenny's appendage was removed!   For 8 months we could not find out why until one day his rescuer reached out to us and told us that she found poor Lenny on the street one day and had a really bad bladder infection with bladder stones.  It was so bad that he could no longer urinate and needed a really expensive rare surgery to save his life.  So she searched high and low to find a shelter or rescue who could help him and she did!  The Upland Shelter took Lenny in and performed the surgery to save him.
Sadly, once we took Lenny in and found out what he was missing....it turned out that the surgery wasn't working out quite well for him, and he needed an additional surgery to correct what was removed.  Lenny since his last surgery has been doing great and has had minimal issues with his urinary tract.  Lenny will need to be on and off medication and prescription food for the rest of his life but none of that affects what kinda dog Lenny is.  Lenny is a sweet and kind dog.  He loves to cuddle and snuggle under the covers.  He's good with other dogs and could be very happy as an only dog too.  Lenny is just a really unique boy who happens to look like a girl on the outside now.  He is the best of both worlds who is looking for a furever home that celebrates his uniqueness.  Apply for this wonderful pup today!

Lilo

Sex: Female
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age: 3 years old

 

Lilo is a 3-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier that was kept as what we call a “backyard” breeder. She birthed countless puppies for her owners, no doubt bringing in a serious amount of cash for said owners. Her owners moved and left her behind. Alone. After years of faithfully providing an income for them. Just left her behind. In the backyard. The landlord eventually had to call animal control to have her removed from the property.

The only evidence that she had had a home was the choke chain collar still around her neck. Lilo found a foster home with Randi and came in full of hope and mega wiggles. Dog kibble in a bowl was a surprising delight each time it was presented to her. Being bathed was a spa like experience, as was rubbing balm into her cracked paws and nose. Air conditioning, quiet surroundings and a plush bed did not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

She is quickly becoming a well-balanced, gently mannered dog and is going to be a HUGE (literally and figuratively) asset to a lucky family someday soon.

Lilo’s precious family cruelly abandoned her, plain and simple. Now that she is a Mutt, she has the power of “Ohana” on her side. Because Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. Randi has promised Lilo that she personally will see to it that she is never left behind or forgotten again. Her personality continues to shine. Her newest trick? Holding the leash in her mouth and walking herself. Silly girl!

She does have some nodules in her mammory glands and may need a mastectomy in the near future which we will keep you posted on but all in all she is doing well.
