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.

      Breed: Shih Apso
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu / Lhasa Apso / Mixed. LOOKING FOR MY ANGEL: 8 years old / 18 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. Before coming to Mostly Mutts I lived a very neglectful life. I’m happy that I was rescued and am getting great care now! I’m deaf due to the neglect, but I’m used to it & am comfortable with my loss of hearing. I had surgery to remove my left ear canal as it was very damaged. I love to follow my people around throughout the day, so I’m looking for a family with a stay at home member who wants a nice companion. I’m not a dog to be carried or a big lap dog, but if you have a blanket in your lap on the couch, I just may curl up in it. I’m content to camp out at your feet on a nice blanket or just be close to you on the floor. I shouldn’t live in an apartment/condo type home though as I bark when I’m left or don’t know where you are in the home. I’m very good with all the different dogs & kitty cats I’ve met (there have been many) and I live with 2 dogs and a cat in my foster home now. I’m a laid back guy who also likes to play a little bit with other dogs which is quite cute, and my favorite thing is when my foster family rubs my ears as it feels so good! I’m very good on a leash with no pulling & I enjoy going for short walks with my people or just out to potty and back, whatever you like. My eyes are a bit dry too, so I get daily, very inexpensive eye drops. I don’t love them, but my foster mom can show you what works best for putting them in. I had my teeth cleaned, and lots were pulled so my mouth is feeling great too. I have some ongoing allergies and eat Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein food and that really helps. I don’t eat a lot either since I’m a smaller dog, so it’s not expensive to feed me. My potty manners are good on a very regular schedule too, although not perfect. I’m not crated in my foster home, but I do well in the kitchen while my people are away although I may sing a song or two. I sleep well in a doggie bed next to my people’s bed at night. I have a little temperamental side and may protest if I’m tired and it’s time to go outside or up to bed by trying to snap, but just put a leash on me and I’ll comply. Teens and older please since I have that temperamental side at times. I’m looking for a wonderful patient family that won’t mind my little quirks. Energy level: 3–5. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered & my adoption fee is $100.00.

      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. A VERY ACTIVE GAL: 3 years old / 19 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 fun-loving, active girl with awesome ears, a real “delight” say the volunteers! I’m looking for a family who will be very active with me as I’m no couch potato, although once I’ve had good exercise I’ll settle into a doggie bed, or next to you on the couch for some toy or bone chewing time. I love car rides, walks, hikes and maybe even some runs with you! Speaking of toys and bones, I think of them as only “mine”, so do need some training not to be possessive of them. I have snapped when a volunteer tries to take them from me. (no contact was made). I’m very expressive in the barking department, so I should not live in an apartment/condo type home or your neighbors may get a little upset with us and we don’t want that! I don’t know why, but I want to mount human legs which is not allowed, so a dog savvy family that will correct that behavior will be great. I’m sure I’ll learn with very consistent training. I’m working on my potty training now, and am improving, so yay me! I met and spent the day with a grumpy dog recently and totally respected him, so I think I’ll be good with other dogs as I do seem to read their signs! I walk well on a leash and was very good on a recent hiking outing—I passed lots of other dogs and kids on the trail, and was very polite. I don’t like going back into my kennel as it’s so boring in there and I like action, so be sure to give me toys to stay occupied! Older kids since I’m currently possessive of my toys as I don’t want to bite anyone who may not understand not to touch them. Energy level: 7–9. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and my adoption fee is $275.00.

      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. ROYAL THEMED DOG: 5 years old / 52 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 sweet and soulful kind of dog who is loved by all of the volunteers at the Mostly Mutts shelter and in my part time foster home too! Everyone says how nice I am and I really like that! My foster mom says that I'm "Awesome"! I don't even know what that means, but it sure sounds good! I know the commands ‘sit’, ‘lay down’ and ‘touch’ which is when I touch your hand with my nose. I ride well in the car and have not been destructive in my foster home at all. I have night vision loss, and sometimes it really throws me off. My foster mom will be glad to give you the details to help with my transition into a new home. Some if which is giving me some time to really get to know and trust you. If I’ve already settled into bed at nighttime, just call me to come to you so I don’t startle and growl due to my night blindness. A night light is also helpful, so I can see a little better after the sun goes down. After a recent trip to the vet, I found out that I have high blood pressure (yes, dogs can have that!). I will need to stay on my blood pressure meds and, they are working great at keeping me healthy. I’m still a normal, happy dog, but I’m not going to be a good fit for a runner or long-distance hiker. I have good potty manners and do really well on a schedule. I'm also great with the other dogs in my foster home, just feed us separately as I don’t want to share my food, and I just ignore the kitty cat. I really enjoy walks and rolling around in the grass because that just feels so nice, but please don't leave me unattended in the yard, as I can dig out or jump shorter fences! I also like kids and would be best with older kids as I am large and due to my night vision challenges. I'm afraid of thunderstorms, so I’ll want to hang out with you during storms please. Once we’re well acquainted, I’d love it if you wanted me to sleep in bed with you but if not, I’ll sleep in a doggie bed in your room. Energy level: 4 – 6. I'm current on vaccinations, neutered and my adoption fee is $275.00.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Italian Greyhound / Mixed. ACTION & ADVENTURE DOG: 2 years old / 15.5 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 looking for a family who will be very active with me and has some dog savviness to help me with my leash behaviors and vocal expression. Yes, that’s a fancy way to say that I bark! I was adopted a few months ago but my exercise needs were not met, then my family moved and I ended up at animal control. So I’m with Mostly Mutts again looking for the right home! I have a lot of energy that gets pent up if I am not exercised enough. So when I go out on a leash, I really bark at other dogs and even act like I’m going to eat them. However, after proper introduction, and with a dog that absolutely loves playing with other dogs, I can be great! Mozart, who’s also available for adoption is my new friend and we play hard and have fun! I’m ready to be your exercise partner and like my namesake, I’d like to be in training all the time! I can see myself going for hikes, extended walks and even runs with you or perhaps you could train me to be a Frisbee or ball retrieving dog! The options are endless! I’ll need you to not get frustrated with me on the leash, but rather commit to training me properly. Due to the pent up energy, I can be a little mouthy/snappy at times, but I haven’t broken skin and don’t think I mean to at all, I just get so excited and frustrated. Best no kids due to the above though. No apartment/condo type home for me due to barking. I don’t like going back into my kennel as it’s so boring in there and I like action, but my potty manners have been good on the shelter’s schedule, so that’s a plus. I can jump pretty high, so if you have a fence make sure it’s a reasonably tall one. You likely won’t be impressed with me at adoptions, but if you’re ready to be very active with your dog and have a bit of dog savvy, we could be wonderful together! Energy level: 7 – 9. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $275.00.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Corgi / Mixed. A HANDSOME FELLOW: 4 years old / 34 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 am a strikingly handsome fellow who is in interesting mix of breeds. The volunteers describe me as sweet and a little shy, also a dog that needs some reassurances from my people to build a good trusting relationship together. I want love but not too fast, as it’s a little overwhelming meeting lots of new people. I think I’d do well in a home that doesn’t have a lot of folks coming and going, so I can just love my people and feel at home. A lot of time and patience is what I need to feel truly comfortable and secure. I seem friendly with other dogs, so if you have another nice dog, lets meet and see if we can be good pals! I am protective of my food though, so I should likely be fed separately. I'm also a bit possessive of toys and anything that seems important to me, so I have bitten when my temporary foster mom took something away from me and when folks go too fast with me and I don't yet know them well, or didn't feel secure with them. I've had good potty manners on the schedule at the shelter, so hopefully that will translate to potty trained in my new home. I enjoy walks and walk pretty well on a leash with a little bit of pulling from time to time. No kids as I would never want to bite a child due to being protective of my food, and things that are deemed important to me. Once I know you well, I'm sweet and cuddly. I’m looking forward to finding a wonderful, calm family to love! Energy level: 4 – 6. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $275.00.

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.

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.
