Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed. Hello my name is Pete I’m 13 years old I had a family but I some how ended up in a scary place they call a shelter. I had a tag with my name and phone number but my parents never called back. The shelter called my foster mom and she said it was OK for me to stay here while I look for a new family. I’m an older guy so my perfect family would be with no young kids. I like to go for walks and am learning how to snuggle with my person and accept love again. If you are interested in adopting him, please fill out an application.

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: Goodyear, AZ
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Maltese / Mixed. Luna is a beautiful 2 year old Chihuahua/Maltese mix who despite being partially paralyzed in her back legs due to an accident that happened just prior to her being surrendered to us, doesn't slow her down, she is a feisty little girl with a lot to say. Luna came into rescue with many fleas, a body full of open sores and irritated skin, But after a few days of good care, flea medicine and yummy nutritious food, she was on her way to stardom!!! Luna is very cautious when it comes to strangers and can be a little nippy towards them, and bark at them, but if you give her a chance, she will warm up and tell you a beautiful story with her amazing eyes!!! Once she feels comfortable, she will be your one and only. Luna would do best in a home where her humans are there a lot, or can take her with them, as she loves to go on car rides. She gets separation anxiety when her humans leave, but when they come home, she is very excited and gives them much love and many doggy kisses. If you think that you could give Luna the love and attention she needs, Please fill out an application to adopt.

      Location: Goodyear, AZ
      Posted Breed: Poodle (unknown type) / Mixed. Harry was found as a stray you can tell he had been on the streets for a very long time. He was a knotted mess and had to be shaved to the skin. Under all that mess was this handsome little guy we think has some Poodle in him. It appears poor Harry has never been in the house we are working on his "inside manners" He is a little shy and learning how to "trust" a human. If you are interested in adopting Harry and have the time to help him learn good manners please fill out an adoption application.
