Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Please note that since TAGS is a smaller volunteer program, we are limited to adoptions within the Durham Region area. We encourage those applicants who apply outside of the area to check your local shelters and rescue programs. We are always happy to refer you to a program in your area. Pepper is a hound cross who is looking for some love. We believe there may be some greyhound in her. She is a fun loving girl who is very affectionate towards people. We originally came to find Pepper when she was tied to a park bench in February and left overnight at just 8 months old. She was put through the TAGS program we managed to find her a great family home. That is where most TAGS's stories end, but unfortunately, Pepper's TAGS' story continued. A few years ago while playing in her backyard, Pepper had a run in with a Coyote. Although the Coyote never actually got to her, Pepper was chased through the screen door into the arms of her family. Unfortunately, since then, the poor girl is a bit wary of some dogs (but not all - her best friend is TAGS dog Bart). Pepper puts on an act that is big and tough in order to keep other dogs away. Because of her fear (and her display of how bad to the bone she can be) Pepper was brought back into the program. Because of her past, Pepper is a people person. She loves to meet and play with new people, however, when other dogs are brought in the mix, she puts on her show and scares the other dogs (and people who don't know her) away. With some love, patience, and training, Pepper would make an extremely loving companion.

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: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / West Highland White Terrier Westie / Mixed. Please note that since TAGS is a smaller volunteer program, we are limited to adoptions within the Durham Region area. We encourage those applicants who apply outside of the area to check your local shelters and rescue programs. We are always happy to refer you to a program in your area. This 15 week old chihuahua-westie mix is one of the cutest little guys we have ever seen. Everyone that meets him wants him. But before you head over to fill out an application here is what you need to consider: Hershey is very small - only 4lb. Small children and large, boisterous dogs would not be a good fit Hershey is just a pup and needs to be able to relieve his bladder fairly frequently so someone being home more often than not is preferable Hershey is teething and he LOVES to gnaw on anything he can get ahold of - mostly hands and arms and ankles Hershey has a spinal birth defect and is currently undergoing chiropractic care in Whitby and this should be continued. A pup takes a lot of work and energy so make sure you are up for it before you fill out the application.

We encourage those applicants who apply outside of the area to check your local shelters and rescue programs. We are always happy to refer you to a program in your area. Stretched out peacefully on the grass, pinto-patterned Dixie is a true blue doggy delight! Friendly and frisky, active and affectionate, she is 45 pounds of pure happy. A confident canine who adores children and gets along easily with cats and other dogs, she’s the picture of calm when it comes to barking (she seldom barks), being left on her own, and accepting gentle touches and generous treats. Surrendered by owners no longer able to provide her with adequate attention, she knows her commands, but needs a refresher course to polish them to paw-fection along with a loving home, preferably with a large, securely fenced yard, committed to keeping her mentally stimulated and physically satisfied.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Please note that since TAGS is a smaller volunteer program, we are limited to adoptions within the Durham Region area. We encourage those applicants who apply outside of the area to check your local shelters and rescue programs. We are always happy to refer you to a program in your area. Little Libby is still looking for a family to call her own! This adorable 10 year/8 month old short haired Chihuahua was used as a breeding dog in a puppy mill and has only known a super sheltered life in a cage before she came to TAGS. Her foster mom has done a great job of helping this little girl to realize that outside of that mill there is a lot of love, and a lot of adventure waiting, but little Libby is still quite timid. Only secure inside her foster home, Libby is easily frightened by sudden movements and sounds, barks when alone and, because she's fearful of leaving the house, is slightly overweight due to lack of exercise. When she is with her foster fur- sibling, she only barks briefly and only if someone is at the door. Her canine companion sleeps near her all through the night. She hasn't quite gotten the hang of playing yet but loves to tip the toy basket over and closely examine the selection of toys. She loves her blankies and will sneak in and steal the throw right off your lap if you've let it dangle over the edge of the sofa. We know with patience and consistency, that she is going to make somebody a fabulous addition to their family so we (and Libby!) have been patiently waiting for that perfect family to come along. Because Libby missed out on much of her life and the lessons she should have learned, what this doggy dearest needs now is the gentle guidance of a tender and patient adopter who understands where she has been and how far she has truly come. This darling girl has so much love to give to someone who is home most of the time, with another gentle dog for added guidance and comfort. As a senior, Libby's adoption fee is half price.

Sammy is a beautiful, handsome boy. He weights 26 kgs and is medium height. He gets along well with most dogs of all sizes, but doesn't like high energy, in your face type ones. He would be best suited to a home where children are 12 years or older. He is quiet and shy when you first meet him, but quickly warms up.

Lou knows sit, lay down and shake a paw. He goes into his crate very easily and sometimes hangs out in there with the door open. Lou's a tall guy and a real goofball. He likes to play fetch, chew sticks in the yard and flop to the floor for belly rubs. Lou's a quick learner and is food motivated. He's looking for an active individual or family with older children to be his furever home.

As a blend of two bright and beautiful breeds, Solo is a singular doggy delight. S urrendered to us due to his temporary family’s lifestyle change, he gets along with children of all ages, and likes meeting and greeting new people. He enjoys playing with other dogs (he can, however, be somewhat disdainful of small ones), is fine with cats, and loves rides in the car. Highly treat motivated, Solo knows "sit", "go", "stay", "paw", and "shake", walks well off leash, and responds to his name. Fully housetrained, he roams free during the day, likes sleeping on the couch, and would LOVE a fur-ever home with a fully fenced yard where he could run loose.

We encourage those applicants who apply outside of the area to check your local shelters and rescue programs. We are always happy to refer you to a program in your area. Meet Chara, the epitome of a graceful, regal and loyal purebred German Shepherd. This gorgeous girl will make you laugh with her silly antics, keep you warm with her loving snuggles, and help you feel safe when you’re alone. In keeping with the German Shepherd breed’s character; Chara trusts her handlers and the visitors she’s familiar with, but is very apprehensive about strangers. Chara is good with other animals but it’s best to monitor her interaction with them in a stressful situation, as with most dogs. Chara needs an experienced guardian who can help this anxious dog overcome her fear of strangers and new experiences. Chara is eagerly awaiting placement in a loving, quiet and experienced adult home (permanent or foster), one where someone is home much of the time to provide the lovable Chara with the exercise and structure that she needs as well as the closeness she craves.

We encourage those applicants who apply outside of the area to check your local shelters and rescue programs. We are always happy to refer you to a program in your area. True to her name, this gorgeous gal is the colour of golden brandy. At 69 pounds, she’s the kind of doggy darling you can wrap both arms around! Happily active and energetic, Brandy thrives on three walks a day paired with lengthy lopes round her family’s fenced yard. Obedience trained, this bright beauty knows sit, stay, wait, come, gentle and down, and enjoys car rides once she’s settled. Because she’s both house and crate trained, she has free rein of the house during the day, and either sleeps on the floor of the master bedroom or inside her opened crate at night. Being surrendered to us because of her family’s move to a residence where pets aren’t allowed, Brandy will do best in a home without children or other dogs, but with loving people to pamper and pet her forever.
