Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Isabell (pawparent@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Juan's story is a very special one. He came to Paw Parent from a shelter in Tecate, Mexico with 3 other lucky little ones. The fate for shelter dogs in Mexico is gruesome. If there are too many dogs at the shelter, they are killed by electro shock!!! Euthanasia is too expensive. So, yes, Juan was indeed very lucky. And lucky is the person who will adopt him! He is a sweetheart and loves to hang with his special person and is very affectionate. He walks well on a leash and loves to play chase with his friends here at Paw Parent. He is around 2 years old and weighs about 12 pounds. He is neutered, up to date on all her shots and has a micro chip. Please call 661-724-0642 if you would like to meet him.

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: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Please contact Isabell (pawparent@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Paw Parent rescued little Mickey from the Castaic shelter, where he was like a dime in a dozen. So many brown Chihuahuas in the shelters :( Poor Mickey has become very fearful of strangers and needs lots of TLC before he will give his trust, but once he does he shines with his golden heart! He is a very sensitive and affectionate little one and just loves to warm someone's lab. He is quiet and mellow and all he wants to find a forever home with someone who will see through his first fierce behavior and will give hime the love and attention he's so craves. Don't you want to cuddle and hold this 6 pound bundle of love and give him a warm forever home? He gets along great with all dogs and walks well on a leash. What more does someone need? He is about 10 years old with no health issues and recently had his teeth cleaned. He is neutered, micro chipped and up to date on all his shots.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Isabell (pawparent@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Mortimer had languished at the Downey shelter for a long time until he was transported to the Castaic shelter where we saw and fell in love with him. He is such a distinguished fellow, all he needs is a tweed jacket and a pipe and he could star in a movie as an English professor. He is sweet and lovable but is particular about being picked up, which he does not enjoy much and he will let you know so. His tail is paralyzed due to an old injury, but he wags with his smile and heart when happy and excited and that is all that matters. The good news this is that you won't have to worry about knick knacks being knocked down by a wagging tail :). He gets along wonderful with all the dogs here and walks well on a leash. He will make a marvelous friend and companion to a lonely heart. He is about 5 years old, and weighs approximately 15-18 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date with all his shots. Please call 661-724-0642 if you would like to meet him

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Isabell (pawparent@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Trevor was relinquished to Paw Parent by people who had a hard time containing him. He kept escaping and they did not feel the need to find out why or make the yard escape proof. As long as he is with people he is happy and had not tried to escape. He must have been left alone in the yard. He is a sweet little guy and very affectionate. He gets along great with other dogs and even has a girlfriend here who is over the moon with him :) He is about 3 years old and weighs 10-12 pounds. He is neutered, up to date with his shots and has a micro chip. Please call 661-724-0642 if you would like to adopt him.

      Breed: Maltese-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Maltese / Mixed (medium coat). Priscilla and 9 other fellow friends came from a so called back yard breeder who lost control and had all the dogs interbreed with each other. He ended up with way too many on his property and animal control put pressure on him to reduce his number. He called Paw Parent and thank God there was room for all of them. They all were terrified of strangers and must have never gotten any special attention. We have been working with them and slowly but surely they are coming around and some of them are now ready for adoption, including sweet little Priscilla. Once she's on you lab she loves to be petted. She is still afraid of a lot of things but will adjust and become someones very special friend. She is 3 years old and weighs about 10-12 pounds. She is neutered, up to date with all her shots and has a micro chip. Please call 661-724-0642 if you would like to meet her.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Dachshund Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Isabell (pawparent@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Lilly's story is a sad one. Her owner had to be hospitalized and is more then likely not able to return. She and 8 other dogs, 3 horses, a mule and 15 cats were left without anyone to look after them properly. The property is located near Lancaster. A friend of the owner has been coming up once a week to take care of the house and the animals and hired a neighbor to come once a day to feed and water them. The rest of the time they are alone in their kennels, house and corrals. Paw Parent and another rescue were contacted and asked for help. Paw Parent was able to take in one dog with horrible fly bitten ears and two others were taken by another rescue. There are now still 6 dogs at this property patiently waiting to find a home or a rescue to take them in, one of them is lilly. I go up once a week to clean the kennels and let the dogs out of their runs for some exercise. Lilly and her brother Barney have lots of energy and love to run and explore. It is too funny to watch how those two sausages run around criss cross with huge grins on their faces. She loves to sit in her little pool after her work out and is ready for her spa treatment. She must be around 2-5 years old maybe and weighs approximately 25 pounds. She is spayed but needs to be updated on her shots. It would be great if she could find a home with her brother Barney. Please call 661-724-0642 if you are interested in meeting her. She would love to make a house with cozy dog bed her home.

      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel / Maltese / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Isabell (pawparent@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Cute little Snoopy was taken in by Paw Parent with 9 of his buddies. They came from a couple that thought they could make quick easy cash by breeding. Well,not so, they lost control and the result were way too many mixes that were useless to them. So here we are with Snoopy a Spaniel mix. Like his buddies he was not socialized properly and is afraid of people. He is very sweet though and will not bite or growl when picked up, he just needs proper TLC and he will blossom into a playful, loving dog. He is cute as a button and will make someone very happy with his sweet personality. He is almost 2 years old and weighs about 10 pounds. he is neutered, up to date on all his shots and has a micro chip. Please call 661-724-0642 if you would like to meet him.
