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.

      Lilly

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Lilly is a very sweet girl. She is curious and wants to know what you are saying. She was found with paint ball paint on her, so she may have been used as target practice. She would make a great couch potato as she loves to lay down and tends to be a little lazy. She loves her bath and playing in water. She is learning to sit and walk on a leash. She still pulls a little. So far she hasn't liked any of the dogs we've introduced her to. A single pet household would be best.

He cannot be in a home with other dogs, and would not be suitable around cats or chickens but would more than likely love your area rug and belly rubs. Toby does not like to be restrained or grabbed around his neck area, but does not mind this area petted. He also will accept a leash, but should have a harness instead of a collar. He will love you and give kisses if you abide!

      Apache

      Breed: Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Apache is a very energetic dog, so he would be the perfect companion for someone with an active lifestyle. He thrives most when he is being challenged, ie. receiving training and being asked to perform. He's very smart and is currently being trained, videos and photos can be checked out on our FB Page. He is better as a single dog, however, the behavior in a shelter is much different than that of when they go home. We would suggest a meet and greet with any potential adopter that has a dog. Come check him out! You will not be disappointed, his fun demeanor is contagious!
