Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Dusti (poochheavenvolunteer@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Meet Rolo, he is one of our most special friends!!! We rescued him from East Valley Animal Shelter; they had picked him up as a stray. Rolo is a 5 year old, 24 pound- Terrier Mix. He was not available for adoption at the pound to the public; they would only adopt him to a rescue because of his behavioral issues. Since, being in our care we are working with him daily and he has made great progress but has away to go. Rolo can not be adopted into a home with any small children due to him being so scared, timid and nippy. Most likely Rolo had a horrible beginning in life and has lost his trust in people (if he ever had it), it seems he was either left in a backyard or confined to a small space with no interaction. He had never been hugged, given any affection or praise and he had never been on a leash. Since, being with us he has shown he is actually extremely lovable and capable of being handled and touched, once he gets to know you and trust that you will not hurt him. We have also got him to walk on a leash, 30-40 feet but it has taken time. Rolo needs a quiet, patient and calm home. He also listens very well and will make a great companion for the right person. If you are interested in meeting this special guy, please call us at 866-PAL-4-LIFE.

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.

      Breed: Mastiff-Saint Bernard Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Encino, CA
      Posted Breed: Saint Bernard / Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Dusti (poochheavenvolunteer@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.Meet Bernie! He is a six year old Saint Bernard/Mastiff mix and weighs 84lbs. Bernie was found as a stray and brought to us by another rescue group, whom loves Bernie very much. Bernie has successfully had his surgeries (entropion surgery to correct his eyelids and he has also been neutered). His fur is growing back steadily from a severe case of demodex (mange). It€™s clear that someone ruff housed with Bernie a lot when he was younger. Which some people see him as being aggressive, but I think that, that€™s just how he plays. Since, working with him more he has became a lot more trusting and loving and not so combative. I think with some more work we can break that, but you have to make sure you don€™t ruff house with him. He€™s great on a leash and loves car rides. He likes dogs, and loves to run and chase, but if you don€™t have a dog that has an upper hand; he tends to take advantage, or pick on them. He has separation anxiety. Basically, Bernie is a large baby that wasn€™t taught to play well with others. Poor guy has been through a lot but everyone is rallying around him and I know the end result will be worth it
