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: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed. A FRIENDLY CONSTANT COMPANION: 10 years old / 8 lbs. Meet me Saturdays at 1 of our 2 Kennesaw locations from 11-4pm. Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I’m a little sweetie pie who is happy to be in a foster home now while I wait for my new forever family to find me. I’ll become deeply attached to my humans pretty quickly and really just want to be with them whenever they are home. I’m happiest when I’m curled up in your arms or right next to you. I’ll whine or bark if I know you’re home and can’t get to you or if I need attention. So please make sure you have lots of time to cuddle with me. I’m great at using potty pads in between going outside, while my family is away and at night time too, so please have those for me so we don’t have accidents. I need to gain some weight and my foster family is mixing a little water in my dry food and a spoon of wet food too and I’m eating well now so I should start gaining. I am a bit protective of my food, so just feed me separate if you have another dog. I may like a doggie friend to play with in my new home, but we should meet as I didn’t like all dogs at the shelter. Cats, I’m not too sure of, sometimes I ignore them and sometimes I chase them. I hope you’ll let me sleep with you. It’s going to get cold soon, and I’ll climb right under the covers and keep you warm! I enjoy the outdoors too when there’s time for me to sniff around and sit in the sunshine. I liked the gentle kids that came to visit me when I was at the shelter, they were respectful of little dogs, but best no toddlers as I’m small. Best no apartments/condo type home since I do bark for attention. I’ve had my teeth cleaned so they are good now and my eyes were looked at because some folks though I had beginning cataracts, but the vet reported, no cataracts! Energy level: 4 – 6. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and my adoption fee is $275.00.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Retriever / Mixed. A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH: 3 years old / 79 lbs. Meet me Saturdays at 1 of our 2 Kennesaw locations from 11-4pm. Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I am a big, lovable guy who has had a bit of a rough time. When animal control found me, I had an embedded collar in my neck and hematomas on my ears from old, untreated ear infections, as well as skin issues and Heart-worms. My skin and ears have been treated, and I am eating healthy, grain-free food now, which is helping everything improve, and I’ve already been treated for the Heart-worms too! Though I have had a rough start to life, I don't let it get me down! I have a great personality and would be a nice fit for a family who will commit to continuing my training as it seems that I missed out on the normal doggie training that all pups need. I had not spent much time on a leash either, but my leash training is improving everyday as my foster family works with me. They have also taught me to ‘sit’ and report that I’m treat motivated, so that will help with other training too. I like tough chew toys and bones, and I love to play fetch – just have more than one ball handy, as I haven't learned to drop it just yet. My potty manners have been very good, and I keep my crate clean too as well as being well behaved in it, so that's great! I don't care for other dogs or cats so I should be your only pet, but I can walk near other animals fine when wearing a prong collar for my walks. If you distract me by talking to me while we’re on walks whenever dogs, runners, children with loud toys, squirrels, and the like come upon us, that really helps too. When there isn't anything around to grab my attention, I walk pretty nicely on the leash, but always keep a good hold of it. I also love following you around in the home, not in a needy way, but just in an "I'll keep you company way". I am very strong with lots of energy and – though I would not mean to, I could easily knock over children, so best my furever home should have older kids only. Energy level 6-8. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $275.00.

Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I'm a gentle girl who is calm in my foster home and quite comfortable with other dogs, cats and children. My foster mom says that I'm polite and don't ask for much, but that I absolutely LOVE neck scratches! I walk well on a leash and I absolutely LOVE walks, love car rides and am well past the age of chewing on things. I've also been very quiet and laid back in my foster home taking lots of naps on my comfy doggie bed. It's great getting to live in a foster home while I wait for my new family to adopt me, as shelter life was really hard for me and I didn't like it at all. The folks were super nice, but I was so lonely in my room that I barked a lot. In my foster home, I have good potty manners and will look at you to let you know I need to go outside. Please don't leave me unattended in a yard though as at animal control, I climbed the fences in no time. I just like being with people and need to be in a home where there is someone around a lot, so I don’t have too much separation anxiety. A stay or work from home family member would be perfect—I really feel more safe and secure when I’m with you! I know that there’s a great family out there that will treasure me like my foster mom does. We tried to have my teeth cleaned, but I did not do well with the anesthesia, so perhaps you could use one of the dental sprays or gels for me. I eat my kibble with some hot water to soften it and some canned food mixed in. Yummy! Energy level: 4 - 6. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and my adoption fee is $100.

Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I’m a good-natured girl who ended up at animal control because my owner had a serious health issue & could no longer take care of me. I love baths and being brushed to take care of my long hair and you will too, because I am very soft and huggable. I’m thankful that Mostly Mutts came for me & I’ve had a happy-go-lucky attitude ever since! I have great potty manners in my foster home & I love my crate! It’s my comfy spot & I really enjoy going in & out of it throughout the day. I’m good with both dogs & cats but do not really interact much with them yet. I’m reported to be very good with kids and I love the attention when they sit and snuggle with me. Just remember that I am a big girl & do like my personal space sometimes! I’m overweight & in fact had a thyroid test done to see if there was a problem, but the test came back good & I just need to lose a bit more weight now to be at my ideal size. I’m very happy to be getting in shape again & I really want my new family to help me with that! I like going for short walks, so we can start with that! I’m working on my leash manners as I am strong, but it’s coming along. I’m also well-behaved, quiet, sweet, laid-back & easy to care for! I love sitting at my people’s feet or snuggling with them on the couch. I also love belly rubs, being petted, cuddling & I never jump on people. Commands I know are ‘sit’ ‘come’ and ‘quiet/no barking”, so I’m a smart girl! Car rides are the best but use caution as I know what button to push to roll the window down. Wandering a bit in the yard is fun too & I’ll come when you call me! Please make sure the doors & fence is secure as I can be an escape artist. Energy level: Currently 3 – 4, hopefully more like 4 – 6 once I get to a healthy weight. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed & my adoption fee is $275.00. Being at adoptions is very stressful for me, and you likely will not see my true personality there. All I can think about is going home, and I pull on my leash whenever I am out of my crate there. I really need to be in your home for you to bet to know me. If you are interested in meeting me, please email adopt@mostlymutts.org.

Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I'm a very sweet, happy and friendly girl who's looking for a kind-hearted family to love! I have a wonderful disposition even though I have a physical challenge. I've not really been able to use my front legs very well, so I've hopped and compensated with my hind legs for my whole life. Now I have some hip dysplasia so Mostly Mutts had a surgery completed on my right front leg and it was a success! So I'm using both my front legs now and that's great news! I do walk very differently, but hey, I'm walking and I get around really well and have a smile on my face too! I’ve even walked almost a half mile, but I take my time to sniff. I’ve learned ‘sit’ and ‘come’ in my foster home and I have good potty manners as well. I'll need a home with minimal to no stairs and I need to stay nice and slim to help me walk so please don't overfeed me, but you can give me all the TLC you want and I'll just eat it up. I love to be brushed and belly rubs, so that's one way you can show your love for me! I seem fine with other dogs but kitty cats and I have an understanding that we should not live together. I’m a good watch dog and bark to alert you when folks come up to the door or there is a loud noise. Other than that, I’ve been pretty quiet in my foster home although I was loud at the shelter. I was toy and bone aggressive but have improved a little in my foster home with sharing toys as long as you trade them out for another. I should not live with kids due to this and because for whatever reason I don't care for them, so an all adult home is what I need! I've finished my heart-worm treatment and I'm happy that it's over! You can call Tammy at 770-314-8974 for more detailed info. about me or email adopt@mostlymutts.org. Energy level: 4 – 6.

Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I'm a wonderful, happy dog who's had a hard start to life, but I don't let anything get me down as I'm full of life and I love to play! I came to Mostly Mutts with a broken back and unable to use my back legs at all. I recently had surgery to amputate one back leg and my tail. I hope that my remaining leg will get stronger and give me more support. Having no tail means my diaper stays on better—yay!. Yes, I do wear a diaper to help with bladder and bowel control but tend not to go in it a lot. My foster family takes me outside and removes my diaper and then I'll go as soon as it comes off. I don't know if I'll ever really be able to not wear a diaper, so you must be willing to change them and keep me clean. I love all people and they love me too and being with people and other animal friends is the best! I like cuddling with both human and canine alike! I also like going outside with my people as that's where we do some therapy with my family helping me stand and get used to my wheelchair, so I can run and move all I want. I can get better traction outside and am motivated to explore! It's great fun. I can also practice my therapy with you on the carpet. We find that wearing a diaper and a toddler onesie gives my back support and may help me have better strength, but I’m outgrowing the onesie’s so a thunder shirt could be helpful with a little back support. I must stay slim to protect my back, so not too many treats for me please and I should be adopted by a family with no stairs or with someone who can carry me up and down stairs. I am not in pain either, so that’s great! You can contact Tammy for more information about me at 770-314-8974. My best friend is Iggy who has similar back issues as me, so if you happen to want 2 wonderful special needs doggies, MM's will let you adopt both of us for one adoption fee of $275.00 or my adoption fee alone is $100.00. Energy level: Currently 3–4, but should be a little higher the stronger I get. I'm spayed, micro-chipped and current on my shots.

Check for my location at www.mostlymutts.org after 5pm on Fridays. I'm a big, friendly, strong and playful young dog who is also strikingly handsome! I like all the nice volunteers who come to care for me at the Mostly Mutts shelter, but nothing will beat having a family and home of my own. I’d like a dog savvy family who knows how to properly handle large dogs that can be a little head strong. I should not be allowed on the furniture as it makes me feel a bit like I’m in charge. I say, “Nothing in life is free” which just means that I should expect to work to earn privileges and it’s great for me to use my mind in that way. I got to stay in a temporary foster home recently and there were 5 other large dogs that I ran around playing with and it was a blast! So another playful big friend could be great in my new home! I don't think I like small dogs though. I love rolling around on the carpet and moaning/growling with delight. I do very well with my potty habits on the schedule at the shelter and did well in my temporary home too. I'm however, not a fan of my crate so perhaps I won't need one, but we're not sure since I currently live at the shelter. I'll go back in my very large crate for treats, but I'd love it if I didn't have to. I have good leash manners and have learned ‘sit’ and I’m working on ‘shake’. I'm a little mouthy when I play and do jump a bit, so please be prepared to do some training with me as all dogs need training, especially big guys like me. Fortunately, I'm very treat motivated, so that is really helpful. I'm a higher energy type dog, so I just can't wait to be active with my new family! I'm no couch potato for sure but I am a super sweetie! Older dog savvy kids as I’m large and can be bossy. Energy level: 6–8.

You see, I was adopted from the Paulding County Animal Shelter as a puppy by my current family. I have enjoyed the last 5 years spent with them, but due to some life changes, it is time for a new adventure with a new family and more furry friends. I can’t wait for more attention and love! I currently have a fur sister that I love playing with and would love more doggie siblings to play with. I have a lot of energy, and love to be outside playing with my ball. I am also fond of water, so maybe we can do some water sports together! Even though I have a lot of energy and I am a big boy, I love to be inside too and cuddle as much as possible. I have also been around horses and like to keep them in check by chasing them, but I have not been around any other animals just yet. I am a great candidate for kids, since I love so much attention. I really need a lot of room to run, and a fence is a must. I do tend to be a bit nervous in new places until I get settled and may need a little extra love, so please be patient with me as I adjust to a new situation. I am a big old baby at heart and can’t wait to meet you. Please give me the opportunity to meet your family, and I know you’ll love me! I am neutered, micro-chipped, and current on my heart worm prevention and all of my vaccinations. My adoption fee is $100. Please contact Jessica Burleson at jburleson3@yahoo.com or 678-524-2476 for much more information about me, as I do not come to Mostly Mutts adoptions. This is a courtesy posting.
