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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Little Rock, AR
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Meet Sissy Sissy is an adult AR brown dog, DOB estimated to be 7/2013. Sissy had a rough start before coming into Out of the Woods. Sissy had been shot in the neck and was injured and scared. Sissy has done well with her foster and her foster siblings. She needs to warm up to both dogs and people. Sissy is also heart worm positive and is being treated for the heart worms which we will continue after she is adopted if needed. Sissy would do well with a canine sibling who is not overly ambitious to be in her face and is not an alpha dog. She will easily adapt but needs to be monitored and supervised for the first several days. Sissy has been with small children for a short time and did well. She was monitored the entire time. She is leery of new people but does well when boarded. Sissy is territorial in her own house and yard. She really needs someone who is patient and will allow her to come around in her time. She loves to play and does well on a leash. She rides well in the car and on hikes. She must have a privacy fenced yard when not on a leash as she can leap like a deer over in no time. Once she trust you, she will be your protector and stay by your side. Sissy is UTD on everything, she is house trained and crate trained. If you are interested in Sissy, please head over to our website and put in an adoption application. www.ootwrescue.org Adoption_Application If you have questions about Sissy, please contact Stephanie her case manager and foster mom at foster4ootwrescue@gmail.com Sissy's adoption fee is $150 to help with the cost of her vetting and care.

    • German Shepherd Dog-Pembroke Welsh Corgi Mix Dog For Adoption in Little Rock, AR

      Trimmy

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Pembroke Welsh Corgi Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Little Rock, AR
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Corgi / 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. The pups are 13 weeks old, and Trimmy is once again svelte at about 46 lbs. This sweet girl is probably just about a year old. She 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 old enough to rough-house, Trimmy plays with them until they drop. She has the stamina, but 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 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. She hasn’t had much experience on a leash yet, but she’s a fast learner so we don’t anticipate any problems.Trimmy is spayed and up-to-date on shots. Those of her pups remaining available for adoption are also listed on this web site: Dark Star, Dimer, Essie, Sundog, and Thunderbird. To apply for Trimmy, please submit an application via Out of the Woods Rescue: https://sheltermanager.com/service/asmservice?account=tz1092&method=online_form_html&formid=2 You will find our adoption applications here: http://ootwrescue.org/adoption.html

      Location: Little Rock, AR
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Corkey came to OOTW from a hoarding situation where he was one of 18 Chihuahuas. He is very shy, but we believe once he's in a home, he will settle in if given a little time. Corkey is around 9 years old and seems to be in good health, however, he is heartworm positive. We are treating Corkey for heartworms using the slow-kill method and OOTW will pay for this treatment and have Corkey re-tested at the end of treatment to make sure those nasty things are gone! ;) Corkey is crate trained and doggie door trained. If you would like to adopt Corkey, start by completing the Adoption Application. You will find it here: https://us6.sheltermanager.com/service?account=tz1092&method=online_form_html&formid=2 If you have questions about Corkey, please contact Foster Mom, Georgia, at georgiagriffis@sbcglobal.net Adoption fee for Corkey is $150 which will help to offset some of his vetting expenses.
