Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). DOB: 7/22/11 My name is Macon. I'm a sweet hound dog looking for my forever home. I will howl to play and howl for my food, but I'm not a big barker. I love to sit and gaze out the window during the day. It makes me happy. I am house trained, crate trained, love treats and know basic commands. My foster mom trusts me enough not to crate 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. (AF*) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, neutered 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: 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 for 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! (ML/*CW) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, neutered and micro-chipped. Adoption Fee: $175.00

I prance around on my back feet to get your attention so you will pet me! I was pulled from the shelter when I was very preggo. My puppies are now weaned and I am ready to have my very own home. I love to hang out on the couch with you and watch TV and enjoy walks around the block. Don't you need a wonderful companion? (*MA) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, spayed and micro-chipped.

I may be a senior girl, but I sure would love to have a comfy bed and someone who will give me treats and love and attention. I found myself back in rescue through no fault of my own, but it's ok, I am a girl who is happy to find a new family to love! I get along with other dogs and am gentle with kids. Can't I come hang out in front of your fireplace? (CM) Up to date on age appropriate vaccines, spayed and micro-chipped. Adoption Fee: $175.00

I will greet you with a smile every morning and a kiss or two if you let me! I am a big girl (90#) with a heart just as big. I, of course, am a great house guest, being house trained and kennel/crate trained, as well as leash trained. I am good with kids, but not with cats or small dogs. My favorites? Snuggling, ponds, mud and belly rubs - not necessarily in that order. Can't wait to meet you so I can bring some joy to your world!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / French Bulldog (short coat). DOB: 1/1/2009 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. I love playing with other dogs too! I do equally well on a leash or with a fenced yard. I would do fine with apartment life and would be waiting at the door to greet you when you come home. :) I am highly motivated by attention and therefore easy to train. Also, in case you haven't noticed I am a beautiful gal with a gorgeous charcoal coat and a knockout smile. Who wouldn't want to claim me at the end of their leash? I love to play and run but when I'm spent 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 am also crate trained and 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: 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

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Hound / Mixed (short coat). DOB: 12/15/2011 Hi; my name is Endurance and my name says it all! I am an observant young lad who has a lot of love to give to the right family. I have completed my basic obedience training and I know many commands. Just ask my foster mom; she can tell you how smart I am. :) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE to be with my people whether that means snuggling on the couch or lazy afternoons sunning on the front porch. Oh, and FYI belly rubs are my favorite. :) Do you need a fishing buddy? How about a shotgun rider in your pickup? I would even make a great firehouse dog. I just like to be with my human no matter where the action is. ;) However, because of my size, sometimes I still don't know my own strength so a home with older kids and where I am the only canine would be the best fit for me. So, if you are looking for a dog to be your best bud in life or partner in crime (I am flexible), come out to the next adoption event and meet me!!

      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). DOB: 11/28/2013 My name is Ginger and I am a shy girl, but I have a smile that lights up the world! I would love a home that has a confident dog that would help me realize the world isn't such a scary place. I would prefer a fenced in yard (no underground fence). I am house broken and a good girl. I would probably do best in a home without cats (they tend to scare me). I need a patient family who will give me time to adjust, provide reassurance and can help me blossom into an awesome family pet. I can't wait to find a forever home!
