Posted Breed: Terrier / Fox Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). "Finn" Terrier mix, male, 10 lbs, neutered 3 yrs old “Finn” aka Muffin, 3 yr old Terrier mix, male, 10 lbs Finn came to Open Arms Rescue after he was attacked by a group of male dogs in Ensenada, Mexico. As you can see from his photos and videos, all of his injuries were to his head. He was incredibly lucky to be found by a rescuer in Ensenada 3 days after he was attacked, and was taken to a local vet. Muffin had major damage to his head and face, and came into the vet suffering from Sepsis. He received months of surgeries and medical care at the vet and was finally able to come to the USA. Muffin is a loving, playful little boy who prefers a female owner. He also prefers the company of female dogs, so he is looking for a home where he will be the only boy. This is probably the result of his vicious attack. Please come and meet Muffin. He has been waiting a long time in his foster home to meet his family. Let’s not make him wait much longer.

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.

He's an attentive, loving, mature, well-behaved male who just wants to be loved. He comes from a family with children who could no longer keep him due to divorce, but was originally rescued from the streets of Mexico. Ultimately, he's seeking a long lasting home where he can grow old with his best friend. Playful, and active Felix loves to hike, chew bones, cuddle on the couch and give you sloppy kisses whenever your in the mood. Felix was taken in by the rescue after having been found wandering the streets of Ensenada alone, sick and afraid. He spent months in a foster home recovering before he was ready to start looking for a family. Felix was adopted by a couple and became the star of all their holiday cards and the best friend of their infant son. That was 3 years ago...the family reached out to us recently and needed to give poor Felix up. He has lost the family he thought he had. Despite this upheaval and heartbreak, Felix is optimistic. He knows the right person will see him and fall in love. How couldn't you, with his adorable underbite? Felix is now a young 5 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He is wonderful with all animals and children. Felix longs to find a family he can belong to for the rest of his life, where he will be a loved and cherished member of the pack.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adorable Lab puppy mix, 6 months old, male 33 lbs Cooper is a very special boy, who has overcome abuse yet is still loving and trusting of people. He is only 6 months old!!! Sadly, he doesn't photograph well because the vet said someone may have disfigured his face which has left a major scare. Hopefully this will heal with time. As you can see from the pics, he doesn't even like looking at the camera as he is embarrassed of his disfigurement. How sad.... :( More importantly, his personality remains very sweet. He gets along great with other dogs and is very well-behaved, playful and smart. He's also house trained. This sweet boy is ready for his forever home, could that be with you?

She was 4 lbs and a skeleton, with hardly any fur, you could see all of her ribs and bones. She had been kept by someone in Mexico and totally neglected. She was near death when a good Samaritan talked the owner into giving her up and then dropped her at a local vet in TJ. An Open Arms Rescue volunteer was down at this vet at the time and saw her in a cage there. She had been there only 2 days. The vet was very happy that we were able to take her into our rescue. We had her seen by our vet and she was diagnosed wth some health conditions, but once we discovered this and put her on medication(insulin) she filled out into a beautiful 9 lbs and all of her white/peach hair grew back in. She is diabetic and does require 2 injections a day of Vetsulin (doggie insulin) with here 2 meals. She is just simply a sweetheart and beautiful now. She is very mellow, doesn’t bark or wine at all and just want to be a lap dog. If you would like to find out more about Bianca please contact us.
