Posted Breed: Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Carla (jojo111672@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. To get Pre-approved to adopt from HBAR in the future If you would like to get pre-approved to adopt thru Homeward Bound Animal Rescue, but aren't quite ready to take a dog home. Please select Pre-Approval on our adoption app when it asks what pet you are most interested in adopting. Getting pre-approved is a great way to get started. Just because you don't see a dog that you like on our website doesn't mean he/she isn't in one of our foster homes waiting to get listed. We rescue pregnant dogs or dogs who have recently delivered from kill shelters or from owner surrenders. Because the puppies are so young, we do not list them. We only list our puppies until they are 7 days past their first set of shots which puts them at about 7 weeks of age. When we list our puppies, they are a week away from adoption age - 8 weeks. We will begin to release the puppies to approved adopters once they are 8 weeks old and have a health certificate from our local vet. We do not hold puppies for anyone, so please do not ask the foster parent to do that for you. When we hold a puppy for you, you have just tied up that foster home, and we cannot save that next pregnant dog from being euthanized in a kill shelter. It may sound melodramatic, but it's the truth. PS: The picture for Pre-Approval is my personal dog, and he is not up for adoption. See what gorgeous creatures can be found in rescue.

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: Chow Chow-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: Mechanicsburg, PA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Chow Chow / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Kim (snellzarcone@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Meet: Lloyd. Lloyd is a male chow/lab mix. Lloyd is named for my grandfather, who always had every eye on him when he entered a room. Like my grandfather, he has a BIG personality and fills the room with joy - I am pretty sure that if he could belly laugh, he would. Lloyd and his littermates had an unfortunate start to their lives, living outside in harsh conditions with little shelter or protection. One of our partners was able to convince the owner of their mom to surrender the puppies so they could get proper care. All puppies are up to date on shots, have had at least two health checks by a veterinarian, have been treated for parasites, and are microchipped. HBAR puppies are not spayed or neutered, as it is not healthy to alter puppies this young. However, our contract requires all adopters to spay or neuter puppies by nine months of age at the new owner's expense. If you are interested in meeting Lloyd or his littermates, you must have an approved application with Homeward Bound Animal Rescue. If you are not ready to bring a puppy into your home immediately, please do not apply for a specific puppy but rather for pre-approval.

      Breed: Puggle

      Age: Adult
      Location: Mechanicsburg, PA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Pug / Mixed (medium coat). Juggle Thelma is so happy all her babies found their own homes and now she is ready to find her new home. Our vet thinks Thelma is under two years of age. She is such a mellow dog. She really just likes to hang out next to her people, preferably with you petting her or at least having your hand resting on her body. Thelma is housebroken, sleeps next to you in bed at night and doesn't even try to steal your covers. She just wants to be close to you. This girl will lay in a crate and is slowly figuring out that she will get a treat or two if she jumps in the crate when you are heading out the door.
