Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless (short coat). UPDATE: Her ear surgery has been postponed for a cople weeks to give us time to clean up a minor skin infection. MEET MONA (before/after pictures say it all...) This baby girl was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Dade County about a year and a half ago as one hot mess. We presume her to be about 7 years old (very hard to tell - her teeth are actually in pretty good condition...) She was a puppy mill mama dog, and when her litters diminished, they dumped her. Her skin looked like elephant hide, and her eyes and ears were nasty. She has been fully vetted; bathed, scraped, vaccinated, is being treated for heartworm and is living in a foster home with several other small dogs. She does require eye drops DAILY as she does have dry eye and she does suffer from occasional ear infections. She doesn't LIKE to be groomed, but she is getting better with the process. She is a Hairless Chinese Crested who has NEVER been cared for - until she came into our care. Her skin is 95% better now than it was when she came to us. She has been spayed and microchipped and has had 2 eye surgeries. She is very sweet - loves playing with her ball, and being near her human... and gets excited when she sees kids! -dog friendly & housebroken. Adoption fee $150

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
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Fort Lauderdale, FL
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). MEET NINA~~ (What a cutie pie) This pretty little lady is an owner surrender - she loves the wife, but has trust issues with the husband...! So her human has unselfishly decided to find a home where Nina will be happier. She is about 5 years old, full grown at 10 lbs., loves being dressed up - and wants to sleep in bed with her human! She has been around children, dogs AND cats! She is housebroken, but has never spent time in a crate (never a need to crate her as she is well behaved when left home alone). She saw our Vet today and she has been thoroughly vetted, spayed and given a dental. She will be at our next adoption event on Saturday! We are accepting applications on her now. Rehoming fee $300 Please email for an application: info@gratefulpaws.org NOTE: Adoption/rehoming fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip. There is rarely anything left over, but if that happens, the monies get applied to the next or previous pet - who may have had to have an x-ray, be groomed or have a dental.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Fort Lauderdale, FL
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). MEET LEXI-- (Check out her video) Yes - this is the dog who was SHOT in the leg and left for dead in Hollywood, FL. A Good Sam saw her and brought her to the hospital and Grateful Paws was asked to step up and try to help raise funds for her vet bill--AND-- find her a new forever home. SHE IS DOING GREAT! She is in a foster home with a couple other bully breeds and is happy, sweet and trying very hard to be better socialized. But she does like to play rough! She is now about a year old, still a puppy, playful and very people friendly. A basic obedience class with a trainer would be helpful... We believe she had been a "yard dog", so she is learning how to greet new dogs. Her leg has totally healed and she doesn't even walk with a limp! They saved her leg without surgery - with daily sedation and frequent bandage and cast changes. And we are looking for an ADOPTIVE home for her. Her ideal home would be where she could be the only dog - and with an physically active family who can tire her out. Because of her life as a yard-dog prior to coming into our care, she had not been socialized with other dogs as she should have been, so she is re-active when meeting other dogs. We are working on it that behavior - but for now, an only dog home would be best. If interested in adopting/fostering, please email for an application: info@gratefulpaws.org An adoption fee of $150 will apply. NOTE: Adoption fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip. There is rarely anything left over, but if that happens, the monies get applied to the next or previous pet - who may have had to have an x-ray, be groomed or have a dental.

We've taken him to see our Vet, cleaned him up, he has been thoroughly vetted, neutered & chipped and will be living in one of our foster homes. He is a happy-go-lucky cutie -- full grown at 8-9 lbs. and under a year old. Right now, he is a little afraid, but once he gets settled, he will be fine. Sweet temperament...

      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso (medium coat). THIS IS CHICO Grateful Paws was asked to step up and rescue this little fella after he'd been injured by his owner. His eye is going to be fine - and he is now on the mend (with eye drops daily). He had to be shaved down to the skin, was just neutered, brought up to date on vaccines and micro-chipped. What a cutie! He's 4 years old and full grown at about 9 lbs. We believe him to be a Lhasa Apsa. He will be going into one of our foster homes tomorrow so we will know his temperament a little more, but so far, everyone agrees that he is a sweetie.

      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). THIS IS FOXY BELLA... (perfect family pet) Her owners moved into a place that does not allow pets, so Grateful Paws was asked to find this baby girl a new home. She is about a year old, full grown at 10 lbs. and looks like a little RED FOX! We are advised she is a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix who gets along well with other dogs, cats and children of all ages! She has seen our Vet and has been spayed, micro-chipped, examined and brought up to date on vaccines. Admittedly, she has not been AS socialized as a young pup should have been, so at NEW THINGS, she becomes frightened and sometimes gets a little growley. As soon as she realizes she is safe, she is cute and cuddly again. Her ideal home would be with an active person or family - She is still a puppy and very active. She is in great health - very curious and is waiting for her forever home. Adoption fee $300 (which will be applied towards her vet bill.

      Location: Fort Lauderdale, FL
      Posted Breed: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). MEET CHARLIE--- Charlie was adopted from a high-kill shelter about a year ago -- but the home he went to was far more social and active than the life he'd been used to - So, his human has made the selfless decision to find a home for Charlie that is quieter where he won't be as stressed at new circumstances. Charlie bonds very closely with his owners, showing great affection whenever in the owner's presence, but is apprehensive and insecure when meeting new people. He is pretty much a "Nervous Nellie" and although he has never nipped or bitten, after he gets barky and snarly, he calms down. He is about 3 years old - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix, housebroken, does not mark - dog friendly (no cats and probably no kids). He is full grown at about 20 lbs. and really is a nice little guy. Re-homing fee: $150 Please email for an application: info@gratefulpaws.org NOTE: Adoption/rehoming fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip.

He's neutered, vaccinated, blood tested and chipped now and he is simply DELIGHTFUL! A gentle guy - laid back... We figure he is about 8-9 years old, a beagle/whatever mix - and in pretty good health! He is dog friendly, well behaved when left home alone, and just wants to be your companion. He has never been taught how to walk on a leash, so a fenced yard for potty breaks will be OK for him. A nominal adoption fee will apply $100.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). MEET HANNAH --- (CHECK OUT HER VIDEO) Hannah would be a great family pet - Submissive personality and LOVES kids. She is a BIG puppy - loves to get in your lap and give slobbery kisses. She is such a goof. She is about 6 years old and full grown at about 60 lbs. Well, actually she has gained a little bit of weight and is currently on a diet to get back down to 60 lbs.) She is up to date on shots, has been spayed and micro-chipped and is living in a foster home in Ft. Lauderdale. We enrolled her in a training class and her foster mom takes her on daily walks through the neighborhood. Housebroken, couch potato, crate trained, walks well on a leash -- GREAT COMPANION. She is simply delightful! Gets along very well with kids, including young squealing ones... and loves MOST other dogs (except small in-your-face types) but the introduction to the new dog must be gradual. She does not do well with dogs who try to be dominant over her -- OR -- with small dogs or cats of any size. She has a delightful personality and very deserving of a new loving forever home. Interested parties should email us for an application to adopt: info@gratefulpaws.org A nominal adoption fee of $150 will apply but the fee could be waived for the right home. NOTE: Adoption fees are applied towards the vet bill: exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip.
