Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless (short coat). Adoption Application link: Fostered in Kentucky I am Calvin. Approximately 8 years old and 20+ pounds. I am very strong and kind of crazy on a leash so I need a really strong, solid fenced yard to take my exercise and potty breaks in. I am house trained but need to go out often. I do ok with other dogs, but prefer to be #1! I am loyal, dedicated, and protective to my person. I am a special needs boy, I have to have eye drops 2x daily for glaucoma and cataracts. I know my needs are not for everyone.... but that special someone will know. Questions - apply to adopt at Thank you for looking to adopt a pet in need. Website:

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.

Country of Origin: Unknown

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.

      Macon (NC)


      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless. Adoption Application link: Fostered in North Carolina Macon is a male hairless Chinese Crested being fostered in North Carolina. He is an adorable little guy with red furnishings and a strong, stout, sturdy build. He almost looks like he might have some dachshund in him the way his body is shaped. He weighs about 16 pounds and was born in 2007. Macon is current on all vaccines, heartworm negative and neutered. Macon is the father of Milo who is also up for adoption. Although Macon and Milo have been together for quite some time, it is not necessary that they be adopted together. Before Macon came into rescue, he was living outside! He is now an indoor dog and loving it! He has adjusted quite nicely to the house and is totally crate trained. He has not had any accidents inside, but is usually supervised when loose in the house. Macon is a very loving silly little guy who wants nothing more than to be loved. He is a totally laid back, low-energy dog once he integrates into the family. Macon is more of a follower—not a leader. He gets along well with other dogs and looks to other dogs for guidance. When Macon is placed by himself, he becomes rather timid and unsure of himself. He would do well in a household with another dog that could guide him. He does not walk too well on a leash if he is walking by himself, but, again, does much better when he can follow another dog. I do not know how Macon behaves around children, but he would probably do ok with older children, but best with adults. He will at times make sounds that I never heard come out of a dog and totally indescribable. Quite unique indeed! He doesn’t bark much but when he does, you will hear quite a hefty, hearty bark that will definitely warn you of anyone approaching. His red-headed temper rises up when strangers approach. He will bark quite protectively and needs to be strongly supervised when around new people until he adjusts to their presence. Macon loves his food and can be a bit snippy toward other dogs that come a little too close to his bowl. He does not have any food aggression toward people. He’s not too fond of getting baths, but is learning to tolerate them. He is quiet while riding in a car but tends to get motion sickness depending on the length of the ride. He is frightened by thunderstorms and wants to be close to his person for comfort during a storm. When Macon first arrived into foster care, he had a very high prey drive and could not be trusted around cats or other small animals. I am very glad to say that he is overcoming his urge to go after the household cats quite nicely and the cats and he are learning to be in the same room at the same time without incidence. I would, however, still not trust him alone with a cat or small animal without strict supervision. Macon is a wonderful little dog who would greatly benefit from individualized attention, training and love to bring out his full potential as a welcomed family member! He will repay you with loyalty and lots of love.
