Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue is an all-volunteer-based Rescue. We have no shelter, so all the dogs in our rescue live in the homes of our fosters until they are adopted. The number of dogs we can rescue is only limited by the number of fosters we have available. Would you be willing to open your heart and home to a dog who needs your help? It takes some time and commitment, but it can be a very rewarding experience to know you helped to save a life. All veterinary and grooming expenses are covered by Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue. If you are interested and would like to learn more, please contact us at info@nebraskanokill.org. Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue needs more fosters, so please add fostering to your sooner, rather than later, bucket list. Thank you!

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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Schnauzer (medium coat). Well hello there! Our names are Jake and Gracie. We are a bonded pair who were born 2/15/2012 . We have had a lot of experiences in our five years together, but we’ve always had each other when things got scary. We had a nice place once with a wonderful lady who cared about us. We loved her very much, and she felt the same. Over time, our nice lady got very forgetful, and the three of us had to move away. Off we went together, a long way away, into a big house with lots of people and doctors and nurses, and we didn’t get to go outside much anymore. But Gracie and I stayed right with our lady until she couldn’t care for us the way we cared for her. Nowadays, we’re in a great foster home with room to run outside and two other schnauzers! We have learned to go for walks on leashes, to play and lay in the sunshine. We love it here, but we need a place to spend the rest of our lives together. Gracie is a little shy after all the bouncing around we’ve been through. If there are kids in the house, we'd do better if they were older. We also would not be good in a home that has cats. We are hoping for a home in or near Lincoln, NE. BTW, in our pictures, Jake has the floppy ears!! If you are interested in meeting Jake and Gracie, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org Suggested adoption donation: $400.

      Zade

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Zade is a 3 year old German Shepherd who weighs in at about 90 lbs. He is in need of a new home; foster or permanent. He is obedience trained and knows his commands and he walks great on a leash and enjoys 1- 1 ½ miles walks a few times a week. He gets along with other dogs and with cats who are comfortable being around dogs. He is cautious of new people and needs time to get to know them. Adopting this dog will require several meetings with him and at least to start with, Zade will be muzzled. Once Zade is comfortable with someone, he will be protective of them, so it is important that strangers not come onto the property unannounced or walk up to pet him if he’s on a walk. Zade will require an experienced handler to ensure that he is not put into any situations where he believes he or his family are threatened. He is current on vaccinations and heartworm negative. Zade is not a destructive chewer and has not had issues being allowed to roam free in the home. Zade would need to be crated before visitors enter his home. He enjoys going for car rides, playing with his toys and being in the company of his family. Zade’s ideal home would be with a quiet family who will take him for walks/ runs and include him in their daily activities. He would very much like to have a fenced yard and someone to play with. His favorite game is Frisbee. We do not recommend that Zade be in a home with children or teens who are likely to have friends who drop by to visit. Note: Zade was recently treated for a hematoma in his left ear, so for the time being, that ear flops over. If you are interested in meeting Zane, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org Suggested adoption donation: $250.00

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). If you’re looking for a little royalty in your life, we have a Duke in need of a good home. This friendly senior Pit Bull mix was born in March of 2006 and lived in the same home since he was 7 weeks old. His owner is moving to a new home where Duke isn’t allowed. Duke lost his family and home, then found out he is heartworm positive, but fortunately this was caught very early. His heartworm treatment has been modified for an older dog, but it has been started. He is current on his vaccinations and is an active dog when outside, but mostly a laid-back dog when inside. He gets along with people of all sizes and other dogs, but should not share a home with a cat. We do recommend that children be of school age so they understand not to climb on him or accidentally fall on him. He enjoys going for walks and car rides and very much enjoys laying on his blanket, which he prefers over plain carpet. Duke weighs in at about 65 lbs., he is house-trained and used a crate in the past. He’s pretty mellow in the evenings and is happy to lay beside you on the couch if permitted or at your feet. His ideal home would have a fenced yard that he can play in and a family to love him. Duke would be wonderful company for someone looking for a loyal companion who doesn’t want to go through all the puppy mischief. This senior deserves a permanent home. If you would like to meet Duke, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org Suggested adoption donation: $150.00

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Say "HELLO!" to Cali. This mini Pittie has the cutest white collar and bib with four white feet to match! She was spayed on the 20 th of September, has all her vaccinations and is microchipped. Cali plays a bit rough for some dogs, so proper introductions and supervision is needed. We don’t recommend her going to a home with small dogs and cats are an unknown at this time. Previous owner said she is good with children and we suggest that they be of school age. She knows a few of her basic commands and is mostly house-trained. She is also trained to a crate. Cali would love a home with a fenced yard where she could play and burn off her energy. Since we’ve had her, she has only been around 6 ft. fencing, but we don’t think she would jump a 4 ft. one. After she exercises, she is content to lay down and nap. She enjoys petting and also exploring when outside. Cali does pull when on a leash, but is learning to walk properly. She enjoys going for car rides, hasn’t torn up her bedding and is not a barker. This sweetie was born on October 10 th , 2015 and is a very sturdy 46 lbs. She is looking for a family who will continue her training and include her in their daily activities. She's a happy dog with a great attitude and will be a wonderful addition for someone’s family. If you are interested in meeting Cali, please contact info@nebraskanokill.org.
