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.

      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Isabell (pawparent@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Mutt Mutt was abandoned at Paw Parent. The person abandoning her rescued her from a very abusive situation. Supposedly poor Mutt Mutt was tied to a tree and mistreated by people and children. To this day Mutt Mutt is extremely afraid of strangers and needs time, love and understanding before she trusts a new person. Once she knows and trusts someone, she is is the most loving and affectionate dog, full of fun energy. She absolutely loves to play tug of war and shakes the toy wildly when she succeeds. She gets along great with other dogs and loves to play with them. She truly will bring love and fun into the life of whomever adopts her, but does need an experienced dog person because of her mistrust of strangers. She is now about 2 years old and about 50-55 pounds. She is spayed, micro chipped and up to date with her shots. Please call 661-724-0642 if you want to meet her.

Chongo is a victim of eviction :( He came to Paw Parent when he was only a year old, which is over a year ago. If you are looking for a well balanced, fun loving dog look no further. Chongo is all about having a good time with his human and dog friends who loves to run and play and hang out by the water. He does not know his size and thinks he is still a puppy. He is a rambunctious teenager if you will with a very sweet and affectionate personality. At night he likes to burrow under the blankets like a Chihuahua in my bed. He recently had to have ACL surgery and has pretty much recovered from it and fully enjoys life again. He will make a great hiking buddy for an active outdoorsy kind of person and also will keep you warm at night. You cannot help but fall in love with him! He weighs 65 pounds, is neutered, current with all his shots and has a micro chip. Please email us or call 661-724-0642 if you would like to meet him.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Grizzly and his wife Lady, a German Shepherd, were living in a kennel 24/7 for at least five years! They were never let out for exercise or human contact. The property they lived on was used for shooting commercials and the owner lives in LA. Someone came to feed them once a day, but the poop was rarely picked up and when a friend of Paw Parent worked there on a commercial and saw the conditions with poop piling up and metal bowls chewed up out of boredom, she knew she had to do something to free them. She contacted Paw Parent and it was arranged for Lady and Grizzly to come and live here at Paw Parent. Grizzly is a happy go lucky guy who loves to run and explore and show you how much he loves you. He would be OK with being separated from his wife Lady but I am not sure how she would survive it. She is very bonded to him. So in an ideal world it would be great if they could find a home together. Sadly he is going blind but you would never know if you don't know it. He navigates really well and has not lost his loving, exuberant spirit. Grizzly is about 8 years old, weighs around 60-65 pounds, is current on his shots, is neutered and has a micro chip. Please call 661-724-0642 if you are interested in meeting the two.

Lady is very much on the shy and timid side and is not happy when walked on a leash but has greatly improved. She is very bonded to Grizzly and needs him close by at all times. It would be fantastic if they could find a home together. She likes being petted once she knows you and enjoys being brushed. Lady is around 7 years old, spayed, updated on all her shots and has a microchip. She weighs about 55 pounds but could use a few extra ones.

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Harry's story is a sad one. His owner had to be hospitalized and is more then likely not able to return. He 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 Harry. I go up once a week to clean the kennels and let the dogs out of their runs for some exercise. Harry is very mellow and sweet and does really well on a leash. He is very affectionate and loves to ride in a car. He must be around 7 years old and weighs approximately 60-65 pounds. He is neutered but needs to be updated on his shots. He has a skin condition that is most likely caused by a food allergy. HIs belly and parts of his legs look red and irritated. He would probably do really well on a grain free diet. Please call 661-724-0642 if you are interested in meeting him. He would love to make a house with a cozy dog bed his home.
