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.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). “Bella”, 8 yr old Chihuahua, female, 8 lbs “Bella”, 9 yr old Chihuahua, female, 8 lbs Bella is a little doll! She is super mellow and a very easy keeper! The shelter said she was 6 but we think she is older maybe 9. She came to us with a hernia the size of a tennis ball. We had it repaired and you can’t even tell. It is amazing that someone let her get that way. Our wonderful vet completely repaired it and she looks great now! Talk about a tummy tuck! Wow. She is very quiet and would do well in a low activity home w/out small kids. She gets along with other dogs but just wants to be by herself not really interacting with them. She is more of a peoples dog then a dogs dog. She can be a little shy the first but just be patient and she will come around. She does very well going out for walks, loves the breach and parks and enjoys sun bathing. Doesn't really bark so would do well if you enjoy a quiet environment. Give this little girl a chance to capture your heart, the best things in life are rescued. If you can give her a quiet home and lots of love and would like to meet her. Please contact us.

Cookie – Toy Poodle female, special needs. https://youtu.be/Dh0llmGej9A https://youtu.be/rTI1V0JU-JU She is quiet, loving and very well behaved. She is about 7 lbs. We don’t know how she was injured to cause her rear leg paralysis but we do know that she was dumped at a shelter by her owners as they no longer wanted to care for her disability. We did find out later that it was an old spinal disc extrusion. We did have surgery done on her but it did not make a difference as the problem had gone ignored byt the old owners for so long. But we did try to help fix it. This doesn’t slow her down one bit. She has a little pink cart that she speeds around in. She is currently being fostered along with another little rescued paraplegic doggy named Romeo who is a 2 yr old Chihuahua. (check out his story too.)
