Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Chetak is a 2 year old, 60# goofball that loves to play with other large dogs and get love from all humans! He also loves lounging in the grass and getting belly rubs. He is a complete ham. He knows some basic obedience like sit, down and place, and he really wants to please. He is also kennel trained, and should be kenneled when owners are gone, so he doesn't find mischief to get into like young dogs do! Chetak is around 2 YO and has grown up at the shelter since he was a six month old puppy, he deserves to spend the rest of his life with a family to call his own! He could be a great addition to a younger family who is willing to exercise him and do a little work to teach him how you want him to behave. He loves to play with toys and minds well when you correct him. He gets along well with other dogs male and female, but he likes to play hard, so may be too much for some dogs. He's marked as no small kids just because he can still be a little mouthy when he gets excited, but his foster mom is working on that too and it's almost fixed.

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: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Beautiful Carina is a 5.5 year old female black and white terrier mix. Smaller girl probably @ 40 lbs. She is gentle, yet energetic and loves attention from people. She will gladly run right up to you for pets and attention. No cats for Carina as she is far too interested in them when we visit the vet clinic. She loves to go for walks and takes treats gently. Carina is not leash reactive with other dogs, but she did seem to be bothered by off leash dogs at doggie school, so we we would recommend she be the only pet in a household.

      Breed: Mutt

      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This tan girl is Xica. She was an owner surrender b/c they were moving and could not take her with them. Xica is another one of our seniors who is around 10 years old. She is very good girl on walks, takes treats gently and was very good when the vet was trimming her dew claws! No fuss at all! She is very patient and will lay down and wait if you're on a walk and want to stop to chat. She's a larger female, probably 70 #s and could afford to gain a few pounds still. Her previous owners say she is still very energetic and loves to chase after balls. She also used to live with other dogs.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever (short coat). Mixie is a 9 year old female lab mix. Don't let the gray in her muzzle fool you! She is still full of energy and would love nothing more than a family to take her for walks and give her attention. She will need to be the only dog in a home, but she's worth it. She is full of smiles and life, and no dog loves a good butt rub more than this girl! She does not get along with other dogs and is too interested in cats, so we suggest she be the only dog in the household. You can easily take her on walks as she is not leash reactive to other dogs as long as they are not in her close personal space.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (long coat). Lady is gorgeous 4 year old shepherd mix who always has a tennis ball in her mouth, and she loves to play fetch! She is very skittish in the shelter and with new people, so she will be best in a family that will be patient and really work with her to gain her trust. Lady will likely need some behavioral training given her trust issues, but she is gorgeous and has a long life ahead of her. She just needs an adopter willing to give her a chance!

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). A new picture of George. This guy is seriously great! He probably needs to be the only animal in the home, but he's not leash reactive on walks with other dogs. He loves people. His favorite thing in the world is to go on walks and roll around in the grass and maybe fit a few belly rubs in as long as he's down there! His next favorite thing (maybe tied for favorite) is laying on the couch next to you, snuggling and getting belly rubs. He gets the zoomies and is so cute when he wants to play. He takes treats nicely and is a very sweet dog! If you're willing to have a one animal household, he will give you so much love and tons of laughs. He's a handsome guy too! Look at that face!
