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.

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.

      rescue
      Breed: Carolina Dog-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Carolina Dog / Mixed. Trimmy was anything but when we picked her up-- she was ready to pop with 11 beautiful black/tan pups-- but we knew she would regain her girlish figure once her mommying was done: she’s once again svelte at about 48 lbs. This sweet girl appears to be a German Shepherd donkey mix. Just joshin. But those ears had to come from somewhere! Pharoah hound? Basenji? Corgi? Trimmy is sweet-tempered and playful. When the pups were still nursing, she would tear out the back door and lap the backyard after they'd had their fill. Now that they are gone (adopted to homes of their own), she runs the circuit and wrestles like a horse with a like-minded foster brother. Although Trimmy has the stamina, she's not one of those insanely focused dogs who just can't stop working/playing-- she'll grab a toy to interest the pups in a game of chase, but will easily let it fall. She does enjoy a good dig in the dirt but does not try to dig out to escape. She gets along well with young and old, male and female, dog and human. She barks at cats so we’re not sure she’d be a great match for a home with one, but it’s possible that she just needs exposure and direction. Trimmy is on the shy side out in public, but affectionate and friendly at close range. Trimmy is housetrained, spayed, and up-to-date on shots. Feel free to submit an application here: https://us6.sheltermanager.com/service?account=tz1092&method=online_form_html&formid=2 or contact tendogtattoo@yahoo.com with questions. Adoption fee of $150 will help offset vet costs. Transport out of state can usually be arrange for an additional $175.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed. Gunnar came to OOTW STARVING TO DEATH! This dog, who had an owner, was living on a 3-foot chain and was being fed enough to keep him alive. One of our rescuers spotted Gunnar and stopped to see if she could get the owner to relinquish him to OOTW ... and fortunately, he did! Gunnar is a smaller medium-sized dog. He is a nice dog, but would do much better in a home with less dogs than his foster home. The reason for this is, Gunnar hasn't yet realized he will never go hungry again, and he can be food aggressive to his foster siblings. We are working with him on this and we certainly don't fault him, because he was more than likely fighting for every morsel before OOTW arrived! Gunnar is working on his house training and does well on leash and also does well on car rides. He has been fully vetted and is heartworm negative! Gunnar is a fairly active boy and a fenced yard will be a must for safe playtime. He does love being outdoors and when the weather is nice, you will find him in a sunny spot, stretched! If you would like to be considered to adopt Gunnar, please copy and paste the following link into your browser: https://us6.sheltermanager.com/service?account=tz1092&method=online_form_html&formid=2 Gunnar's adoption fee is $150 and for that fee, you not only get Gunnar, but you also get the following vetting: neuter, heartworm test, rabies shot, microchip, yearly vaccines, and bordatella vaccine. Wow! What a bargain! Don't delay, apply today! You will find our adoption applications here: http://ootwrescue.org/adoption.html

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Meet Monte! Monte is a handsome Basset hound/ Pit bull mix. He came to our rescue after being abandoned on a dirt road. Covered in fleas, ticks and starving, a warm bath and bowl of food quickly earned his love. Monte is playful and affectionate, and enjoys simply being in the company of his humans. He is content to lay next to you on the couch, or sit at your feet while you cook or do dishes. Monte is leash trained, house trained and crate trained, and is working on his manners of not jumping up to greet you when excited. With proper introductions, he gets along well with other dogs and people; but is a little too interested in cats, so he would do best to be in a home without them. Monte is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all his vaccines. He is heartworm positive and is presently being treated, however this does not affect him in any way from being your perfect companion. If you have any questions please contact Kara Parritt at karritt377@gmail.com.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Meet Bella! Isn't she beautiful?!? Let me tell you her story. Bella was picked up at a truck stop. A gentleman took her home where...unfortunately she was quickly impregnated by one of his dogs. She gave birth to 10...yes, 10...sweet puppies! She nursed and cared for them. Then she weaned them and they found homes. Just about the time when OOTW shifted their focus to find her a home, they got a call...7 puppies were found, mama had been hit by at car and killed and the puppies needed help. They took in the puppies and brought them to Bella, who cared for them and nursed them like her own. That's right, this sweet girl has cared for 17 puppies since last spring! What a mama! It's her turn to be spoiled and loved! If you are interested in welcoming sweet Bella into your family, go to www.ootwrescue.org and fill out an application. Bella has been spayed & is up to date on her vaccinations. She is heartworm free! For more information about Bella Donna, please contact Susan Neal at daiseymaggie@yahoo.com.

      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Pointer / Mixed. Lucky Star is a wonderful dog! Just listen to what his foster has to say about him! * WONDERFUL with kids (doesn't seem to be bothered or anxious when my toddler screeches or gets wound up). Generally, he's not too bothered by loud noises like the drill or hairdryer. * Vet estimates he's about 1 year old or little less, which surprised us because he's pretty calm for a puppy although he does nip like a puppy. (He hasn't shown any interest in chewing shoes although he is fond of the toilet paper roll!) * Vet says he's definitely a hound mix, and other guess could be lab or pointer. He definitely has a basset hound coloring (white with speckles, dark brown face/ears, few larger brown/black spots) and does bay some when he's outside. * He's very sociable with dogs and people. (The vet also tested him for aggression and didn't get any signs of aggressive behavior, which she said is also consistent with typical hound behavior.) * He's not had any/much training. I've been working with him on sit, off, and kennel. He does very well in his kennel during the day when I'm at work. He's only had two accidents in the house, and one of those was really my fault for not watching when he had gone to the door. (He's not vocal when he needs to go out but will stand by the door.) * He's not leash trained but is picking it up. He's also walked on the double lead with Ruby and did very well. (Have to watch for squirrels because he and Ruby will both take off to chase a squirrel.) * He shares toys and food well with Ruby (she's not as great at sharing), but I try to keep them separated if they have a treat just in case. * He's current on shots because I had him vaccinated at my vet on 12/2. I also started him then on flea/tick and heartworm meds. * He wasn't malnourished and eats well (same dried food I have for Ruby). * He hasn't shown signs of prior abuse and doesn't seem skittish, although he will bay or cry for a bit when we leave. Not sure if he has a little separation anxiety because Ruby probably helps with that. * He's extremely affectionate, and I can say honestly he is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever seen. (I know I shouldn't let him, but he sleeps in the bed with us and also likes to cuddle on the couch.) In the vet's words, he seems like a sweet country dog who just hasn't learned inside manners yet. He sounds like a great boy! All he needs is a family to call his own! He is completely vetted, including neuter & microchip.
