Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. CUTE SCRUFFY GIRL: 6 years old / 11 lbs. I need a little patience but I'm sooooo worth it. I am a little slow to warm up to new people, but once I do, I'm a cuddly sweetheart who enjoys your lap and bed. I can be a bit nippy at first if you try to rush me, and I have bitten folks at PetSmart adoptions because it's loud and frightening there for me and folks tend not to take it slowly. I was best friends with my foster mom very quickly and when I went to the vet, they put a muzzle on me at first but after the tech held me for a few minutes I was fine. She took off the muzzle and I crawled into her lap. Did I mention I just don't like to be rushed? I love to go for walks and car rides because that means I get to spend more time with my person. I'll be happiest in a calm environment without a lot of people coming and going. Another playful and friendly dog would be nice in my new home as I do like to play and I do well on a schedule with my potty manners. Much older calm and quieter type kids only since I need time to warm up and have bitten when afraid. Energy level: 4 – 6. I'm current on vaccinations, spayed and my adoption fee is $100. I don't come to adoptions because it's pretty stressful for me, but you can talk to my foster mom for more information about me and to meet. Just send an email to adopt@mostlymutts.org.

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: Pekingese. HANDSOME AND FRIENDLY: 7 – 8 years old / 24 lbs. Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. I’m a laid back and sweet kind of guy who is very friendly and so cute! I’m very happy to meet new people, and I will greet you with my “talk-talk” bark. It sounds funny, but I promise I’m friendly with both people and dogs! I like going for walks with my foster family and I walk nicely on a leash and ride well in a car too. I love to be with my people but not really in their laps, I’m more content to just lay beside you or on the floor by you. My foster family adores me and if they didn’t have several dogs already, I think they would adopt me! They say that I have good potty manners and do well in my crate too, but I really don’t need a crate. I love it when people talk to me and give me lots of good scratches and attention. I’m a wonderful companion who will be by your side and love you. I have a bit of arthritis in my back and had a little disc slipping but that’s doing much better now! I basically just need a nice calm home without many stairs. I should do no more than five stairs going in and outside, as well as in my home at any time to protect my back from damage and pain. Maybe you can just carry me to avoid stairs all together—I don’t mind. The vet says that sometimes this just comes with age but I don’t let it get me down! I’m adorable and have a happy nature that you will love! I was taking an inexpensive muscle relaxer and pain killer for this and now I don’t need it. But, it’s an option if I start feeling pain again, and I’m happy to eat my pills in a little piece of cheese. Yum! I do great with the other dogs in my foster home but shouldn’t live with very rambunctious playful dogs. I’d be best with older, gentle, respectful children who understand not to pick me up. Energy level: 3 – 5. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $100.00.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed. SWEET AND INDEPENDENT: 3 years old / Currently 20 lbs. and needs to lose some weight. Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week .I got my name because right now I’m shaped like a Twinkie and it kind of looks like I may have eaten them in my previous home. Well, I’m on a diet now and starting to lose the weight I need to, so I can get to a healthy weight. I walk well on a leash which is good because little walks will help me continue to lose weight. And my favorite toy is a big soccer ball which I will chase like crazy outside in the yard and that’s great exercise! I really enjoy hind quarter scratches cause I can’t reach that part yet and it feels so good! I make cute squeaky grunts when I’m happy. I also enjoy laps very much and I’ll soak up cuddling on the couch with you anytime. However, you may feel the need to help me get up on furniture or rearrange my bed because I can’t easily do those things yet, but please don’t, as I really want to do them myself! I will give a little warning growl if you attempt to help me and I have bitten when I’m unhappy or afraid of something. Guess I have an independent side that a lot of Dachshunds have. I have a quiet nature, except when I’m playing with my soccer ball, I’m good for baths, good in my crate and have had wonderful potty manners at the MM shelter and in my temporary foster home! I’d love to be your only dog as I am people possessive with other dogs and I don’t like sharing my living space or food with them. I’m fine seeing them on walks and all, I’d just rather not live with any so I can have my people to myself. No kids as I have bitten and don’t want to bite a child and because I can be a little food and people possessive and don’t like help doing things. Energy level: 3 – 5 now, likely a little higher after my weight loss. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and my adoption fee is $275.00.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. LOOKING FOR A CALM HOME: 1 year old / 9 lbs. Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. My name is Trisha, and I am very happy to have been rescued by the kind folks at Mostly Mutts. The volunteers and my foster family are caring and patient with me, which is good, because I was not crazy about shelter life and am adjusting to living in a home. I have some trust issues, and I have shown my teeth and bitten out of fear of in this new environment. I would be a nice fit for a small, quiet family with much older teens or, ideally, no kids. Maybe a calm home with a single person would be the best for me. I look forward to being a loving companion, once I feel safe and secure and can trust that everything will be okay. I’m becoming more playful, and once I trust you, I’ll be happy to cuddle. My potty habits are getting better, but I will need to be taken out on a regular schedule. I don’t like being in my kennel and only agree to go in there to eat. I’m nervous when a leash is being put on and taken off of me, so please be understanding of that. I like tennis balls and have chewed on a rope toy too. If you have another dog, perhaps we can meet. I get along with the other dogs in my foster home, but it was a slow introduction and I’m learning to be content with my foster siblings. I'm going to be so happy and grateful to my people once I'm nicely settled in my new home, maybe with you? Energy level: 4 – 6 once I’m comfortable in my new home. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and my adoption fee is $275.00.

      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Rat Terrier / Mixed. VERY ACTIVE AND FUN: 1.5 years old / 25 lbs. Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. I’m a happy and playful dog who wants a lot of attention, love and some training. I’m busy, alert and love having fun! I want to please you, and I’ll do my best to make you happy! I also absolutely love playing with other dogs, so another very playful dog in my new home would be wonderful and would help me with my activity needs. I love my rope toy and going to for run helps to get my energy out. I however don’t read signs from dogs when it’s time to stop playing, so dogs that don’t want to play a lot wouldn’t appreciate me! I’m a little play nippy for attention but very trainable and responsive to correction, so be sure you are prepared to work with me on training as well as providing me with lots of exercise. I am 100% deaf, so I don’t react to noise but I do react to movement. I have learned hand signals, and so far I’ve learned “good dog”, “stop” and “quiet”—I’m so smart! I also respond to a laser lite, so you can use this to get my attention. I’d do best having a fenced in yard that I could run around in some, either with my family playing fetch or with a doggie friend! Since I need lots of exercise, nice long walks and a family that loves being outdoors perhaps jogging, hiking or camping would be a great fit for me! I tend to get overstimulated when I’m out on a walk near a busy street, and I may try to hide from all the cars (and slip my collar). So, please try to find a calm place to take me for walks. My hearing loss may make me more reactive to cars. Leash training is new to me, so I have a way to go before I have that down. When crated, please provide toys and bones for me to entertain myself while you’re away and cover any blinking lights that might cause me stress. Older dog savvy kids please as I’m active and play nip a little right now. Energy level: 8–10. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and my adoption fee is $275.00.

      Posted Breed: Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. COURTESY POSTING FOR AIDAN: 6 years old / 80 lbs. Hi, my name is Aidan! I'm a very sweet, laidback, and friendly boy who's looking for a kind-hearted family to love! I love being outdoors! My favorite things to do are taking walks and going to the dog park. I'm an indoor dog who has very good manners. I am housebroken and crate trained although, I'm not a huge fan of the crate. My parents let me have free roam of the house when they are gone. My biggest talent is I can say "I love you" on command, just like the famous YouTube dog, Mishka! I think I do a better job, but I will leave that up to you to decide. As a puppy, my mom took me to dog training classes with a trainer. I can sit, stay, and give high fives! I sleep most of the day, and I love to cuddle up with you for some extra petting when you get home. I have lived with a female dog for most of my life, and we are very good friends. I do well with most dogs, but I'm not sure how'd I'd be around a cat as I've never spent time with one. I'm great with older kids, but I'm getting older myself and don't have the patience for younger kids. I'm a bigger guy, and I can accidentally knock younger kids over. My ideal home would be with a loving family with older kids (or no kids at all) who can take me on walks and shower me with attention! I'm current on all vaccinations, neutered, and on heartworm and flea preventative. My adoption fee is $125.

We are a bonded pair of Spaniel mix sisters. Sadly, our owner passed away in October, and we are confused and upset, since he raised us together from puppyhood, and will not be coming back to us. We know our owner loved us, because he asked some kind friends to help find us a new home, and they are doing just that – which is why we are here! Their goal is to find a loving home where we can enjoy our senior years together - basically, a quiet adult household with someone who understands seniors. Our owner’s housemate describes us as "grumpy old women", but don’t misunderstand, as we are not aggressive. In fact, we live with and get along fine with a cat - but have never lived with other dogs, so we don’t know how we would do in a multi-dog home. If you have a dog, perhaps we can meet and see how we get along! We really need a home that will accept both of us, as I am getting a bit deaf, and I look to my sister Brownie for guidance. We are indoor dogs that enjoy a fenced-in yard in good weather and - we LOVE doggie treats! Our situation is a bit urgent, as our owner's housemate will not be able to remain living in our house for too much longer and will not be able to take us with her. We are current on vaccinations, spayed, and our adoption fee is $ 100. You can contact Butch Porter at oporter@mindspring.com to learn more about us, as we do not come to Mostly Mutt adoptions.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Bulldog / Mixed. COURTESY POSTING FOR KARMA: 7 years old / 50 lbs. Hi, Friends! I’m Karma. I used to live in Los Angeles near the beach after my foster parents pulled me from a desert shelter. It took a lot of time, effort, and love to re-adjust to family life, but now I love showing off my home (and my belly!) when friends and family come over to visit. I have done a lot of exploring-romping in the Pacific Ocean, climbing through Zion in Utah, camping in Texas, and more! People always give me compliments on my unique sense of style, even though I wear the same thing every day! I’m a pretty mellow fellow as I do enjoy a good snooze, but I am alert, letting you know about anyone at the door, but I don’t see any reason to bark all the time. Sirens? Fireworks? Whatever, they don’t bother me. Naps are better! I am giddy for walks (see this grin?!), but I understand, you’ve gotta get the leash on, so I can be patient, just ask! But then…. let’s go! I’ve got my commands down pretty good, and I can sit and wait on the walk or in the house. And I’ve got a few party tricks to impress your friends! I’d prefer your company to other animals. I had it pretty rough in my early years-a couple of angry dogs put me in the hospital, so I’m pretty nervous around them and would be best in a home without other pets or small kids. I don’t really know what to do when meeting new people, so it’d be helpful if you can introduce me. I also take some medicine at meal-time due to epilepsy, but I haven’t had any problems in years! Do you have a yard?! Are there squirrels?! I’m sooo good at tug-of-war! I’d really like to be in a home with an understanding owner - someone who is interested in some real friendship and wants to keep teaching and loving on me. Also, Brett said he’d throw in some private training sessions with my favorite guy at Atlanta Dog Trainers! I’ll earn my keep with nuzzles, gratitude, and excitement! I’d really like to meet you! Let’s take a walk! Please feel free to call, text, or email Brett Mayfield at 404.408.5951 / wbrettmayfield@gmail.com to learn more about me and fill out an application. I'm current on vaccinations, spayed, and my adoption fee is $ 100.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. COURTESY POSTING FOR BO AND MOE: 5 years old / Medium Hi there! We are Bo and Moe - a handsome pair of Labrador mix, super sweet dogs that are looking for a loving and patient family to call our own. We've lived our whole lives outside, so we've missed out on a lot of the comforts that a dog loves! Warm cushy beds and humans to dote on us and include us in on the family fun. Things have taken a good turn for us since we were taken in by a nice lady who is helping us learn to be great dogs. We have come quite a long way! We are crate trained and do well on a potty schedule in our foster home, and actually like going in our crates during the day to sleep sometimes. Our foster mom just leaves the crate doors open for us to come and go. We enjoy hanging out with the other dogs in our foster home, though we don’t really play with them – just hang out with them inside, as well as outdoors. The two of us have a close bond, and follow each other around pretty closely. Bo is the dominate one and will sometimes growl at me (Moe) if I come too close when getting affection. Though Bo sometimes hogs the attention, we are BOTH very affectionate and love to put our heads on your lap to get some loving. We mention this because we would love to be adopted together if possible since we are so bonded and have only had each other for our whole lives. We are sure to make a wonderful addition to the right home that is willing to be patient with us and give us lots of love. A fenced yard would be ideal for us since we do like to spend some time outdoors. We’ve not been around cats or children, so probably a home with older children or a home with a single person or retired couple would be ideal for us. We have walked on a leash only a little, but we love being with our human, so we should learn that pretty easily, too. This is something you can help us learn well. We’re current on vaccinations, neutered and our adoption fee is $150.00 for the pair of us. Please contact Vivian at holisticrescue@yahoo.com or phone 770-500-9447 for information about us as we do not come to Mostly Mutt adoptions. This is a courtesy posting.
