Adonis

American Staffordshire Terrier

Male, 4 yrs 11 mos
Bakersfield, CA
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Not good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Adonis is the definition of a gentle giant. He may look tough and buff but he secretly loves to cuddle and is pretty sure he is a lap dog. He is very trainable and working on leash manners. He loves his treats, which can be a great motivator with training. Adonis is a rescued stray so his age is not known but estimated at 4 yrs old. Adonis can be good with other dogs but gets excited and forgets how big he is, which could be intimidating to them. He would be ideal as an only pet. With his human friends, he is a pretty low energy guy so one walk a day in between couch cuddles and naps would suit him just fine. Adonis is happiest when he is hanging out with his people!

Story
Stormy is a lively little girl, approximately 3 years old and full of vibrant energy. An active lifestyle is a must for this sweet girl. She would definitely prefer to be an an exclusive fur child with no other dog to share your affection with. She has energy to spare so a family with older kids who can keep her entertained would be ideal. She is the perfect size to take along anywhere you go! Need a hiking or camping buddy? Look no further! Trying to keep up the quarantine quads? She will keep you on your toes! We have high hopes for this diamond in the rough. With patience, love and a consistent training schedule, she is sure to shine!

Story
Rowdy is an older lady, perfect for any occasion. She is just as happy chilling on the couch as she is playing and being silly. She loves water and especially loves playing with the hose. She loves swimming and enjoys her trips to the river for a dip. She’s a very pretty gal but her cute head tilts are her most endearing quality. Would you just look at that cute face? Her chill demeanor and short stature make her the perfect go anywhere, anytime kinda gal. Rowdy may seem shy at first but she is nothing but love once she is comfortable. This adorable little lady would love to have you all to herself because sharing isn’t exactly her strong suit. She would be best with older kids. This beautiful princess has been with us since October of 2017 and it breaks our hearts to even think she may leave but, because of her being picky about dog friends, a life in a kennel is no way for her to spend her golden years. She is about 7-8 years old and has lot of life left in her which we wholeheartedly believe she must get to enjoy to the fullest. Don’t you agree? Are you going to be the family that completes her? Submit an application and come meet her to find out! Please note: All current AND previous pets (cats and dogs) MUST be up to date on vaccines and be spayed/neutered. Please check with your landlord, if you rent, for breed and weight restrictions before applying. We do not allow visitors unless you are an approved adopter.

Story
Sex: MaleBreed: Cane Corso/Mastiff xEstimated Date of Birth: 06/18/20132 years ago when Paws for Miles rescue in Cincinnati reached out asking for help for a dog with a missing tongue we never thought adoption would be an option. He was so emotionally damaged…. It was devastating! Courage had literally seen more horrors in his short life than many of us will see in a lifetime! He was the face of a fighting ring dog and bore the scars of his abuse. How do you fix that kind of damage? We didn’t think we could and resigned ourselves to the fact that Courage would live an amazing life as a forever Marleys Mutt. Little did we know Courage, with all the strength of a true survivor, had other plans. Covered in scars consistent with those seen in many bait dogs. Courages tongue had been removed at the base and we suspect it was likely ripped out by another dog. He learned to eat, he learned to drink and remarkably he learned to trust. The unpredictable dog who originally came into our care is now a dog who loves with his whole heart and soul and truly cherishes the humans he meets. The differences in his personality and temperament are remarkable and a true testament to the resilience of rescue dogs. Courage is finally ready to find a real home. The kind of home he should have had from the beginning. And like the amazing dog he is this home must be perfect. We feel his perfect family will have solid large dog experience. Because of his past Courage would do best in an only pet and child free home. Courage deserves people who will be just as committed to him as we have been. If you love a good comeback story and the resilience of dogs like Courage please apply. We are so excited to see this big boy take those steps into the next chapter of his life If you are interested in adopting a Marley's Mutts please fill out an application at http://marleysmutts.org/adoptionprocess/

Story
Oliver was found in the orchards near Arvin, injured and emaciated with a throat full of foxtails. He was initially fear-aggressive towards other dogs. He has been with us for a year and oh what a different dog he is! He has gone from 25 to 65 lbs, loves snuggles, short walks, and just hanging out with people. He is now housed close to other dogs without issue and has done well with supervised group walks and playtime. Oliver makes us laugh everyday with his stoic stares and dramatic sad face when returned to his kennel. He is such a sweetheart and tries really hard to be a good boy. Because of his past trauma and breed-specific behavior tendencies, we are recommending Oliver only be adopted to someone familiar with the breed. We hope he finds his lifelong best friend soon!
