Posted Breed: Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Liberty! Isn't she a major cutie? She is a mix of various breeds, and sometimes those make the cutest pups! Liberty is a young gal who is about 1 to 2 years old and weighs 20 pounds. Liberty is sweet and gentle. Everyone who meets her falls in love because she is such a cuddle bug! Even though she is a puppy, she is not high energy and does not require a ton of exercise to wear her out. However, she does like to run around and play each day, especially with her toys. She loves to play with other dogs, and we are hoping to find her a home where she will have another young dog to play with. She also would do best in a home without younger children. She also likes to nibble on some things, which is normal for a puppy like her. Overall, Liberty loves to be the center of loving attention! We are teaching Liberty to walk on a leash and get acclimated to new sights and sounds. She gets nervous in new surroundings and around new dogs, but once she learns that everything will be OK, she eases right in and joins in on the fun! She will be a wonderful "cuddle bug" for a loving family! Contact CRI if you're interested in learning more about Liberty. If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath. Thank you for your consideration in adopting a collie in need!!!

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.

      Breed: Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie / Mixed (long coat). Dolly is a two-year-old collie mix. She is a super sweet pup! She was picked up from a rural shelter where she had some puppies, but has since been spayed. All of her puppies have found homes, and now she is ready to find hers! She is getting comfortable in her foster home, where she enjoys being in any room with people to take a snooze or chew on a bone. Dolly is crate trained, house-broken, great on a leash, and is a great listener who is eager to please. In fact, she is naturally smart and knows exactly what you're asking of her. She will be easy to train, especially if she knows that she will be rewarded with food or positive reinforcement. If her big nose sniffs something sweet, it will be sure to grab her attention and curiosity! She has no problems meeting people or other dogs, but tends to avoid more hyper dogs. We are currently treating her for yeast infection on her skin, which will be cleared up soon! Dolly is keen and attentive, and makes great eye contact to try and figure out what you're asking of her. She will be a very sweet addition to a very lucky home! If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath. Thank you for your consideration in adopting a collie in need!!!
