A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: Albion, RI
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Say hi to Ivy! Teeny tiny Ivy came to us via a local vet hospital. She is just one year old, and so full of energy! Ivy is up to date on vaccines, and will be spayed in just a few days. She is funny, sweet, and a real pistol of a gal! She loves to run, play, and pounce on her foster brothers and sisters. Ivy would do well in a home with another dog that is tolerant of her energy, or as an only dog. It takes a few minutes and a treat or two before Ivy will trust, but once she does, it's love forever!

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Albion, RI
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Meet Booker! Booker was found by a Good Samaratin on the side of the road after being hit by a car. When brought into the hospital he was paralyzed and blind. After no owner showed up to claim him, we stepped in. We were told that it was doubtful that he would ever walk or see. But, with the support of a neurologist we decided to give this little guy a chance! We hear this so often with our little miracle pups...that no one told them they couldn't. No one said to Booker, you will never walk again. No one told him he would not run and play again. within a few days he was standing, and within the first week in foster care he took his first tentative steps! He now runs, plays, dances for his food! He loves, loves, loves everyone he meets! Booker snuggles under the covers at night, and his favorite place to be is with his person. Booker is still blind. Sadly his retinas were detached in the accident, so he will not regain his sight, but that does not deter him in any way! He is fearless, and loves to explore. Booker gets along great with the other dogs and cats in his foster home. He is housetrained, but needs a consistent schedule. He loves exploring as long as he can do so with his people. Booker loves to cuddle. He loves climbing up on your shoulder and snuggles in to give hugs and kisses. If if you are looking for a sweet, loyal, dedicated, fun, funny, love-you-forever companion, then Booker is your guy!

      Breed: Cocker Spaniel
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Albion, RI
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. I am Sammy, a 24 lb parti cocker. I am not a perfect dog. But foster mom says I am perfect. I do not have the use of my back legs, but I have a cart that was special made for me that I love to fly around in. I especially love to go visiting, love to ride in the car, love to go shopping, and love to socialize. Oh, and I also love to eat! Foster mom helps me go potty, and we do exercises with my back legs every day. I sleep snuggled beside her all night long in the big bed, and I only snore a little. Also, I am handsome and gentlemanly. What more could you ask for in a pup? 7/2011 Sammy is a beautiful 30 lb special needs parti cocker. He has had a run of bad luck in the last few weeks, but he remains sweet and appreciative. Sammy had back surgery in the middle of May--and he is at this time paralyzed in the rear legs. He requires a hand with urinating and getting around. He is learning to use his cart, and does physical therapy exercises daily. Please consider donating to Just A Touch Rescue for this special-needs, very sweet boy!

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Albion, RI
      Posted Breed: Spaniel / Mixed (long coat). 11/1/14 - Maya continues to do well in her foster home. She enjoys spending time with Yankee, it would be fantastic if they could be adopted together. Maya does not do well with female dogs. 8/10/13 - Maya is not pregnant and was spayed on August 2nd. She is healing nicely and so far has had no aftereffects from the spaying. It takes Maya a little time to get used to new people. She is a sweet affectionate dog that needs to be an only dog because she doesn't want to share with anyone. Definately no cats. As long as you get her on a schedule she is trained to go outside. She is currently in a fenced in yard and loves the freedom of the back yard. Sometimes I have to sit on the floor and let her come to me in order to leash her to get her outside. It took her a few months to acclimate herself to the household. A friend of mine took some photographs of Maya and Yankee today. I just received this link and hope that people can get to it: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.335601086574446.1073741841.190653607735862&type=1 Enjoy the photos.

      Harlie

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Albion, RI
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie (long coat). November 2014 Harlie is doing well in her foster home. She is able to run and climb stairs with no trouble. Harlie is able to hold her bladder overnight and will use a piddle pad or go outside. Because of her previous injury Harlie has low muscle tone in her rear end and she is not able to control her bowels. Her foster mom states she will stand from a nap and the poop falls out. Unfortunately for Harlie this will never change. Harlie is happy and playful and would do well in a home with an experienced dog person that understands that she will never be fully housetrained. August 2013 Harlie is a sweet, adorable 8 pound yorkie girl who has a LOT of that wonderful yorkie-tude! Harlie suffered back trauma and was paralyzed. Thanks to her first rescuer, she now can walk! Harlie can potty on her own, but needs to go out frequently because it's sometimes hard for her to hold it when her bladder gets full. She will bark to let you know she needs to go outside. Harlie is very conscious of being touched on her back end, and if startled, will react with growling and mouthing. Harlies only special need is a family that will love her and understand her. She should not be around young children especially toddlers, but older respectful kids who will understand her sensitivity would be great.
