Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). Ernie is a sweet, trusting, friendly, and playful little guy, but almost completely blind. (He can make out large, contrasting shapes, and detect movement.) But he has excellent hearing and a great nose. He is small enough to carry, if need be, and quite agreeable to being lifted. He is friendly to all the dogs who greet him through his kennel mesh. Ernie was chained up and abandoned, and that's about all we know of his past. Our vet says there is nothing to be done for his vision, but he is otherwise in good shape for an older guy. Ernie needs a small home, so he can figure out where everything is, a safe little corner to call his own, and someone to love and care for him. If you would like to meet Ernie, please email Abbie Lynn at mauiranch@yahoo.com. Our adoption process is: 1. Fill out our Adoption Application online. 2. We'll contact you to schedule a home visit. 3. If the pet looks like a great match, fill out our Adoption Agreement online (or Foster-to-Adopt Agreement), pay the Adoption Fee, and arrange to pick up your new furry family member!

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.

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.

    • Faye - Pointer / Mixed Dog For Adoption

      Pointer-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Aurora, CO, USA

      rescue
      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed. Add lightly flopped ears and twin eye patches, a full white blaze and freckled nose to an open, gentle gaze, and you have Faye, fabulous Faye. The mixed breed beauty, rescued from Texas, has not only learned how freedom feels, she’s also learned such basic commands as "sit", "come", "stay", and "leave it". Active and energetic, she thrives on brisk walks, walking extremely well on a leash, and she’s been happily joining the other dogs when it’s time for play. Crate and housetrained, what Faye needs now is a patient and loving home where she’s the only dog or where there’s either a male or placid female already in residence. But for her to truly blossom, her adopter -- perhaps a jogger looking for a partner -- must continue her education while keeping her mentally stimulated and physically satisfied. *Since I look like I may have some Pit Bull in me, I can't be adopted in the following banned areas: Denver, Aurora, Castle Rock, Commerce City, Ft Lupton, Lone Tree, or Louisville.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed. The coppery pirate patch across her left eye adds an air of impishness to this softly speckled sweetheart. As a blend of three active working breeds, Trinity is true to her heritage by being extremely energetic and, barely past puppy hood, she remains as frisky as one. She gets along well with other dogs, and will need another dog in her new home, but NOT cats. She’s is learning to "sit" and walk calmly on leash, while "stay" is more difficult due to her energy. With her housetraining nearly perfected, she and her foster mom are working on reducing her anxiety when getting in and out of cars. Now, the next step in her life’s journey is an active and loving fur-ever home. Animal Rescue of the Rockies believes that every pet should find a wonderful, caring home.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Soft, warm eyes, coat of muted colors, and four white-dipped paws make Beefy one irresistible beauty. He may be eight years old, but he acts more like three, brimming over with puppyish exuberance and energy. People and pooch friendly, he prefers the company of submissive canines, and because he greets humans by jumping up on them excitedly, he needs a refresher course in doggy manners. As lovable as he is loving, as frisky as he is friendly, all Beefy wants is the chance at a home to call his now and fur-ever.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Poodle (unknown type) / Mixed. White wisps of hair, warm open smile and eyes wide with wonder make mischievous Mo the ideal poster pup for two-legged doggy love. Sparkling with spirit, sass and spice, this merry little soul is cheerfully unaware of having only two fully functional legs. In the words of his foster mom, he’s as fast as they come! Strap him into his cart and he’s off like a shot, either going on the walks he loves or happily playing with the other dogs in his foster home. Slip him into his Drag Bag while he’s inside the house, and he’s expertly scooting about, here, there and everywhere. Fun and funny, social and sweet, Mo’s signature grunts and groans signify both his love and contentment, making the extra care he requires more than worth it. Practice makes perfect, and with practice, his care is as easy as one, two three. He must be brought outside to potty, must wear a Tinkle Belt or diapers indoors (he’s unable to control his bladder), and should be given a "lion’s cut" to keep his bottom clean. Worth his weight in gold, Mo, the lionhearted little love is, quite simply, worth it.

Barely past puppy hood, he’s infinitely gentle and wise, and loves every person he meets. Playful with a capital "P" despite only two fully functioning legs, Buddy is blissfully unaware of his condition, and with his customized cart effortlessly keeps pace with the other dogs. He does have movement in his back hips, and with daily physical therapy, has been growing stronger, giving rise to the hope that he may ultimately recover some use of those legs. A blend of two luscious lap dog breeds, he’s a natural at cuddling on the couch with his foster mom, and when curiosity calls, he's off to explore from the safety of his Drag Bag. Although he must be taken outside to potty and must wear a Tinkle Belt or diapers inside (he’s unable to control his bladder), practice makes perfect, and with practice, caring for Buddy will seem as natural as cuddling with Buddy.

He is good with kids. He is good with dogs in public places on leash but better as an only dog in a home. He can be food aggressive with other dogs. I take him to walk at the lake and take him to dog training with other dogs. I let him meet them briefly and there is no problems. He loves to cuddle and sit in your lap.

Sadly, our person is very ill and is not expected to outlive us, so we are in need of a quiet home in which we can continue our retirement. Ideally, you would be home most of the time, and perhaps you are retired yourself! We would like a comfy home where we can lounge around, and a back yard that is good for running around. We look forward to daily walks to the park or around the neighbourhood. We need to stay together, and preferably be your only dogs.
