Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Reese is your typical, beautiful hound dog. She loves going on long walks, running around the yard, and she loves car rides!! She is a chewer so any stick or toy she can find she will play with for hours, but she does not like to share so if there are other dogs in the home it's best to let them have their own toy time. Reese is a very shy girl, you need to earn her trust. She is looking for someone to show her love and patience. Once she knows she is safe she is the sweetest girl!! This goes for humans and dogs. Her perfect family will be people who can give her enough time and space to become the wonderful pup she has become in her foster home! Age: 2 years Weight: 30 lbs If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website at http://www.lasthopek9.org Questions? Please email adoptions@lasthopek9.org.

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.

      Ahhtumn

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Boston, MA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Ahhtumn is a great dog! She loves cuddling, knows sit, stay, down, leave it, is great in the car (loves going places), has zero guarding issues, is extremely tolerant of other dogs/tiny humans, cat friendly (given proper intros with a dog savvy feline) and has great recall on our long leash work. Her southern foster reports she can leap/climb fences but will only do so if left unattended. She is fine being left out at night and will hog your bed but once you talk about it and set boundaries she's an excellent alternative to a blanket! She does have severe separation anxiety and right now is put in an Alcatraz crate when we leave the house. If left in the company of another dog she quiets down eventually (not the best dog for apartments or shared wall space as she is quite vocal until she settles), provided she is left with high value chews and gets her "cookie" upon entering Alcatraz. She has a heart of gold and just wants to love and be loved. A home with another dog really would be best for her, it helps A LOT with her separation anxiety, and her playful tendencies. She does require an active lifestyle and is good on a leash, but cannot be walked by a child as she is far too strong, on the off chance she sees something she wants a closer view at, she'd take the child for a ride :) If you invest in her and love her, you will never be disappointed.

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Boston, MA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Ebony is a loving and playful dog! She aims to please and loves her people so much. She's a professional snuggler and wants nothing more than to curl up with you on the couch. She really is one of the most affectionate dogs. Ebony gets along beautifully with her two foster fur-brothers and loves to run and wrestle with them in the yard. But she also respects boundaries and settles when they tire of playing, or you ask her to calm down. Ebony has a high prey drive so should not go to a home with small dogs, cats, or other little critters. She listens well and is not needy. She has wonderful house manners and has not been destructive at all, has not had any accidents, and is very calm in the house. She also goes into her crate on command and sleeps wonderfully through the night. Ebony loves children and has been gentle and loving with everyone including babies. She could use some work on leash manners and would benefit from some training classes. She wants so badly to play with all dogs that she meets, that she can become over stimulated and barky when she sees strange dogs on a leash. But Ebony is very smart, and very treat motivated, so this is something she is working on and will overcome! In her foster mom's quiet neighborhood with fenced yard, its not even an issue at all!

      Mattie

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Boston, MA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Say hello to Mattie, an affectionate and youthful 10 year sweetie. Mattie has the heart and love of a young dog but in an older dog’s body. She still has a lot of play and energy for her age. Mattie is good with other dogs with passive personalities. She is good with cats and will even lay on the couch with a cat nearby. She has had occasional “senior moment” accidents so asking her frequently if she needs to go out should correct that. Mattie is crate trained and will easily crate herself for feeding and is fed crated because she is in a multi-dog foster home. She is a huge couch potato and is a fan of dominating the couch when allowed free roam. While not a big fan of toys, Mattie will occasionally play with them but prefers a good chew bone and especially treats. She enjoys riding in the vehicle and is very well behaved. Mattie has not been “kid tested” but her personality is such that she would probably make a good family pet or forever buddy to someone who is retired and wants a constant companion. Age: 10 years Weight: 56 lbs.
