Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). DOB: 7/15/2011 RUFF CLASSIFIED PERSONALS: DORA, LAB/TERRIER MIX SHY DOG SEEKING AN AMAZING SINGLE LADY. I'm a 5 year old shy, black, and a little chubby lab mix who needs a week or so of your kindness to warm up to you. Once I do, I'm yours for life. I'm sensitive to noise and need a quiet home without a lot of visitors. Or a place to go when I get don't want to be social. I'd love a house with a yard and a doggie door as I enjoy lying in the sun. I'm housebroken, and would love to sit at your feet while you work from home. I can sit for treats and love to chew on a bone. I like boy dogs if not too rambunctious. And you don't need much of a security alarm system, because I have a very BIG bark. But honestly, I will probably hide in a closet. I hope you have a big ol' couch so we could cuddle in front of the 50" HDTV. I don't care what we watch as long as I can be with you. Do you need me as much as I need you??????? (TJ/CM*) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, spayed and micro-chipped. Adoption Fee: $75.00

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.

      Location: Garner, NC
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Hound / Mixed (short coat). DOB: ~6/1/2016 Hi! My name is Kobe. And yes...I'm a prime pup. My foster mom says I'm a love bug. I get along great with the other dogs in the house. I play well with others and love to snuggle with my humans during downtime. I also love my foster mom's 3 year old human even if he pushes the limits with me. I'm very patient with him. I'm almost house trained. I need to work on my leash training because I'm a little apprehensive with the world around me (cars, loud noises, etc). I'd love to find my forever home. I currently weigh 40 lbs and I should not get much bigger based on my age. (*AF) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, neutered and micro-chipped. Adoption Fee: $175.00

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). DOB: 12/16/2013 Ruger is a very sweet boy who has a lot of energy! He LOVES to play with his toys and chase squirrels! He is a great running partner too! He believes that he indeed IS a lap dog and will lay in your arms like a baby! He enjoys being lazy with you on the couch and will turn over on his back for you to rub his belly! He currently lives with a 9 year old little girl and 2 cats! The kitties tell him where he can and cant go in the house! He must have a fenced in yard to be able to run and play freely. He does know his commands Sit,Stay,Shake, Laydown...He is crated trained and housebroken. Ruger does get along with some dogs but he loves being the only doggie. We would love to keep him in that same enviroment. He was raised with kids and will dog fine but he tends to be more relaxed with older (middle school and older) kids. If you are interested in seeing Ruger we can arrange for you to meet him. He gets stressed out at events so we can do one on one meet ups for you to see him.

We play until it's nap time!! I like to play "king of the castle" on top of the logs. I do pretty well staying on top of the logs. Do you like to play games too?? I am a Boxer (Mum) and Hound (one of my Dad's) mix. My adult weight will be between 60-70#'s which is a Large size dog. Even though I'm a pup now, I'm ready for training starting now!!! House-training. Obedience Training including sit, stay, fetch, find. Leash training and Socialization not only with other dogs but other humans. These are just a few training items that I'll need in order to be a well-rounded dog. I am a working dog so without Training, Mental and Physical stimulation, I will get into trouble and no one wants that include me!!!! My Foster Mom says that I really need a fenced in backyard. I'm looking to my new human family to give me my training and guidance. In return, I will give them my undivided Love, Loyalty and plenty of Kisses for the rest of my life!!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever (short coat). DOB: 1/1/2009 Hello nice person. Thank you for your interest in me. My name is Layla. I am Golden Retriever locked in a Terrier body. I have a gorgeous charcoal coat. And my ears! Oh you should see my ears. They are so cool. I bet they are able to turn 180 degrees. Come visit me. I will show you. I know I look like a tough gal, but there is no need to shy away from me. I am the sweetest doggie in the world. My aim is to please. I am sweet and loving. I give kisses, and I listen very well. What I like most in this world is attention. Everybody calls me a "wiggle butt" because I get so excited when anyone talks to me or pays me any attention. I love belly rubs and I just want to be with people. While I would love to have a home with a fenced yard, I would do just fine in an apartment as long as I receive a few long walks each day. I am really good at keeping the bed warm for you. Think how nice it would be to come home to a warm spot on the couch. I am such a great seat warmer. I am no longer in the puppy age group, but that does not mean that I do not have energy. I do! I love to play and run like the wind. But when I'm tired I like to settle down for a nice nap. My favorite spot is next to my foster mom, often in her lap. Yep, that's right, I am a lap dog. I know I know. I am a bit large to be a lap dog. But I curl up and fit nicely in her lap. I am also crate trained, house broken and passed obedience class with flying colors. So what are you waiting for? I am the whole package...come out and meet me at the next adoption event if you are looking for a fun and sweet girl to add to your family.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (long coat). DOB: 7/29/2014 I am a gorgeous young German Shepherd mix looking for a family to love. I am extremely loyal to my people and take my job seriously of protecting and loving them. I enjoy exercise, walks and being outside with my people. Even though I can stay alone at home, I still prefer to be with those I love. My foster parents have worked on training me and I know many basic commands but am still learning that I don’t need to be on guard with people at all times. They are working with me on accepting and respecting others in the home. Even though I have not had much interaction with children, I can be in a home with older children. I have had treatment for heartworms and am currently available for a foster to adopt situation until my final test comes back negative. I can't wait to meet you and see if you can be my forever family! (TL/*CW) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, neutered and micro-chipped. Adoption Fee: $175.00

      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso (medium coat). DOB: 12/31/2013 Hi; I’m Yeti, and I love to play, play, play! I like to toss my toys up in the air and then chase them down again. Once I figure out that you like to play, too, you’ll see I’m a very happy and friendly boy and cute as can be! I’m small and soft and fluffy, but I have too much energy to sit around on your lap. My humans say I act like I have ADHD! Snuggling is fun for a minute, but then I’m ready to play again! I only play with doggie toys, though; I’m not interested in human things, not even human socks or shoes. I’m not a chewer! I really need a home with a fenced in yard and a human that can play with me outside for at least 30 minutes every day so that I can burn off my extra energy. Just toss a squeaky ball across the yard and I will sprint after it! Then, repeat! I need time to warm up to strangers before I’m comfortable being petted, and I definitely do not like it when strangers pick me up! I would do best in a home without children or with older children that can protect me from situations where someone can try to pick me up because I may get startled. I would prefer to be the only dog in your home. I love my humans and I’ll follow you all around the house. I want to see what you’re up to! I can jump right over a baby gate if I want to, so don’t trust one to keep me out of dangerous areas! I like my crate and I’m used to staying in it while my humans aren’t home. I’d love to meet you so you can fall in love with me and be my best friend forever! (ML/KC*) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, neutered and micro-chipped. Adoption Fee: $175.00

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Hound / Mixed (short coat). DOB: 12/15/2011 Ruff Ruff. That's "How are you doing today?" in canine language. Everyone calls me Endy, which is short for Endurance. I hate to toot my own horn but I am a pretty cool dog. I have completed basic obedience so I know how to mind my manners. I even cross my front paws when I lie down. My foster mom tells me how smart I am, and for some reason she laughs really hard when I play with my toys. What's the big deal about tossing my toys in the air and catching them? I would say I am a moderately active dog. I do like to be outside so a fenced yard would be really nice. I can run really fast like the wind. I am sort of partial to country life as well. After my playtime outside in the yard, I like to come inside and lie by your feet to take a nap. I think I would like to be able to keep a retired couple happy. The grandkids could come over and play with me once in a while. I would like that. I am a fairly large dog (not really, my head just makes me look that way). I would make an awesome protector. I look like a pretty tough guy, but shhhhh don't tell anyone, I am really just a big ole mush who loves belly rubs and baby talk. I kinda of prefer to keep my humans all to myself. I don't like to share with other dogs and cats! ewwww no way. I mean they are ok, but I chase them and then I get in trouble. So no cats please. If you are looking for a dog to be your best bud in life or partner in crime (I am flexible), please complete and application and ask to meet me!!

I love to run around in my fenced in back yard and love to romp and play with my canine friends. My new home would need a 6 ft fenced yard because I am athletic enough to jump shorter fences. Socially, I get along very well with all dogs, big and small. If you are looking for a low maintenance, part-time couch potato who loves to snuggle with humans, then I'm the dog for you.
