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: Bulloxer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Mechanicsburg, PA
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Carla (jojo111672@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Deaf American Bulldog/Boxer mix Happy is just that a very happy American Bulldog/Boxer mix. Her only draw back is that she is deaf. The plus is that she isn't bothered by anything going on outside the house or inside for that matter and barks only if there is an emergency - like one of her puppies trying to escape their enclosure and she needs our help rounding them up. She is housetrained and crate trained. It is actually very easy to get her to do whatever you want because she is so food motivated. Just pick something that smells really good, like bacon, and that girl will do whatever it is that you ask of her. Happy is spayed, HW Negative, UTD on her rabies and Distemper combo shot, and microchipped. If you think you might be able to provide Happy with a loving home, please complete our online adoption application at http://homewardbound2u.rescuegroups.org. Once your application is reviewed by Carla, she will put you in contact with the foster mom, Tiffany. Happy's foster home is in New Cumberland PA 17070. We do out-of-state adoptions, but you must travel to the foster home to complete the adoption. WE DO NOT TRANSPORT OR MEET HALFWAY.
