Posted Breed: Terrier / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Angelina is a special girl to us. She was found living under a car in a bad part of Bakersfield with 5, 3-day old puppies with her. They were covered in oil and grease and Angelina looked like she had never been bathed ever. The people who lived nearby had thought this was at least her second litter of pups when we saved her. It took hours to catch her, she was very hesitant. But after taking her babies we finally gained her trust and the rest was history! Since rescuing Angelina back in October 2014, we have found homes for all 5 of her sweet, healthy pups (each one looked totally different!) and Angelina has been spayed and microchipped so she never again has to go through what she went through on the streets ever again. Angelina has come a very long way in the last few months. She has become apart of her foster pack and gets along well with a house full of dogs, cats and kids. She is quiet and keeps to herself, but she enjoys being apart of a family for the first time in her life. We hope a loving, stable home will come for her soon. All she wants in life is stability and love, and we won't stop until that is what she gets! :-) Contact us today if you would like to meet Angelina!

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.

      Posted Breed: Terrier (medium coat). Check out BUTTONS! Buttons was wandering the streets of Buttonwillow for months when a few different rescuers tried to save him. He was finally caught and brought to safety! He ended up making his way to us, best thing that has ever happened to him! Buttons has since been treated for parasites, has been neutered, vaccinated and has packed on a few, much needed, pounds! Buttons is about 3 years old. He sure is a lover, always following around his foster dad and is a professional snuggler. Right now he lives in a home with many other dogs and cats and he does wonderfully with all of them. He is also doing great with his crate training, potty training, and house manners. It is the beginning of a new life for Buttons and he can't wait to meet his new forever family! Contact us today if you would like to meet Buttons for a play date :-) info@asafefurrplace.com
