This handsome guy with soft fur was sprung from a shelter in rural West Virginia. When he was picked up he was very unsure of why he was being loaded into a big white van, he was scared and confused. We kept telling him he was safe, loved and had a bright future ahead. Within a few days Guy's sweet and playful nature was uncovered! He loves playing with other dogs, likes to play outside in the big kennel runs and is eager to learn more doggie manners like basic commands. Guy is a lovable lug and really enjoys going to our weekend Adoption Events. Guy knows exactly wear we keep the treats and likes to hang around pretending not to know all the wonderful manners he's learned like "sit" and "down"! Each week, his handler says "Look what I taught him!" Guy is a smart boy and LOVES belly rubs and lots of pets. He is a great dog looking for a great home. Could it be yours?

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.

Dog's Name: Hero Estimated Breed: Boxer/terrier Approximate Age: 1year Approximate Weight: 50 pounds Currently Living at: FOSTER Adoption Fee: $300 Hero had a tough start to life, having been born and raised outside, being attacked by an animal, and picked-up by Animal Control all by the tender age of 3.5 months old. Despite his bleak beginnings, Hero has turned into a sweet, fun-loving, gentle pup. He loves playing with his toys, hanging out in the grass on a beautiful sunny day, loves to snuggle up to his foster mom, and absolutely loves going for walks. He is medium-energy but when he has energy to burn, he goes outside and runs around the backyard in one large circle. He will fetch toys and sometimes bring them back and when playing with his toys, likes to do roll-overs. Hero is still cautious around people but he has made huge progress and will blossom and bond with a patient family. Hero does well with other dogs, but dogs that are reactive, or very nervous transfer the energy on him and make him nervous too. Hero knows sit, down, drop, wait, and come and he listens very well. Hero is easily trainable and with more confidence building and patience, may grow out of his skittish behavior. Adoption fees cover basic vetting, age appropriate distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for most common intestinal worms, heartworm testing if the puppy is older than 5 months of age, monthly heartworm prevention starting at 5 months of age, monthly flea/tick prevention starting at 12 weeks of age, and transport costs from the original shelter to a foster home. K-9 Lifesavers will provide this medical care to this adorable puppy until he or she is adopted.

You can learn about the adoption process by visiting: http://k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=48. Dog's Name: Roxy Estimated Breed: Hound Mix Approximate Age: 1 yr. Approximate Weight: 45 lb. Currently Living at: Loving foster home with other doggies Adoption Fee: $300 DOG'S DESCRIPTION Meet Roxy! This sweet pup was found with her brother wandering around in a yard in Georgia with no mama in sight. They were nothing but skin and bones. Since then, both pups have made an amazing turnaround. Roxy remains extremely shy and really needs another confident canine sibling to show her the ropes, so she can understand that the world is not such a bad place where humans can be trusted. She loves to cuddle and give kisses. Roxy listens very well- I never have to repeat any commands. Roxy is a very intelligent, loving, and sweet pup. Foster update: Roxy gets along great with Piper (foster sibling) but does not like cats (absolutely not). We haven't run into any escape issues :) Rox is crate trained and fully house broken- not one accident! She is low energy inside the house but loves to run around in the back yard like a crazy woman- and boy she is fast! Before adopting a puppy, please assess the amount of time you have to provide your puppy with proper house-training, crate-training, obedience training, love, socialization and, frequent potty breaks. K-9 Lifesavers recommends all new adopters enroll their new puppy into group obedience to ensure the puppy is well socialized and properly trained. Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.

She was taken to the shelter where no one came to claim her. She is a smart, beautiful shepherd mix. Luna loves to play and is eager to learn. All she needs now is a forever family to share all of her love with. Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training.

This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
