Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Georgia is a female hound mix, is approximately 6 years old, and weights 70 pounds. She is very friendly to everyone. It appears she gets along with dogs but definately no cats. She seems to have some hunting instinct and may do well on an acreage. If you are interested in meeting Georgia, please contact Gretchen at glchamberlain@live.com. We ask that all family members including other dogs be present for the meeting. A home visit is part of our adoption process. The adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise stated. The fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lymes test, heartworm and flea preventative, testing and treatment for a variety of intestinal parasites and vaccinations. Breed Disclosure: Due to the fact that most of our adoptable pets are strays, we cannot guarantee their breed. We list the pet’s breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, temperament, and personality of the animal. The pet may also be listed as a mix when it’s actually a purebred.

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: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Marion, IA
      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). Ripley is an Australian Cattle dog -Red Heeler mix that is approximately 2 years old and weights around 47 pounds. He knows the commands sit and shake. He will need exercise on a daily basis and when you do not pay attention to him, he may talk to you and let you know he is being ignored. Ripley appears to be okay with other dogs. He does appear to get along with cats, but wants to chase them and get them to play. He is very food motivated which helps greatly with obedience training. Ripley will do anything for a treat and will be a little stubborn when no treat is offered. Ripley likes to play fetch and is fairly good at bringing the toy back to you, for the most part. Overall he is a pretty great dog and would make a good addition to your family. If you are interested in meeting Ripley, please visit him at The Animal Welfare Friends Shelter in Monticello. The shelter is open from 12:30 to 6:30 PM. A home visit is part of our adoption process. The adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise stated. The fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lymes test, heartworm and flea preventative, testing and treatment for a variety of intestinal parasites and vaccinations.

We list the pet’s breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, temperament, and personality of the animal. The pet may also be listed as a mix when it’s actually a purebred.

      Blaze

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Marion, IA
      Posted Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer (short coat). Blaze was relinquished by two previous owners. The first owner had him for 5 years and then moved into a trailer court with no yard and gave him to another couple. The new couple had him for 4 months. He was relinquished to our care due to him scaling their 4 foot fence and going after some of their sheep. He is said to have quite the hunting instinct. Blaze is a 5 1/2 years old German Shorthaired Pointer and AKC registered. He is neutered and current on vaccinations. He has lots of energy and will require alot of exercise or country living with animals he will not hurt. He has had little to no training and will require a leader with training experience. He destroys all bedding and toys, so a black kong is about the only toy he can be given. If you would like to meet Jasper, please contact Chris at 319-202-8153. The adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise stated. The fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lymes test, heartworm and flea preventative, testing and treatment for a variety of intestinal parasites and vaccinations.
