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.

Boster Terrier/Border Collie/English Bulldog mix puppy Meet Jangle! Jangle is one of Beanie's puppies. Jangle is a Boston Terrier/Border Collie mix like his mommy. He is never far behind his brother Jingle. Jangle is very sweet and playful boy, but loves being cuddled and having his ears rubbed best. He loves to play with feet. Beanie is a Boston Terrier possible mixed with border collie. We believe daddy to be an English Bulldog because one of the puppies looks like a pure bred English Bulldog. Jingle is very sweet and loves to cuddle. And he loves his teddy bear. He is very happy to have his belly rubbed while foster mommy listens to music. He loves to be kissed on the side of his face. He also loves to play with the other foster pups with what I call the paw game. The vet feels he will get to be between 30-40lbs. The puppies have been wormed every week while in our care and proactively treated with Marquis Paste in case they were exposed to a parasite called Coccidia. Their fecal sample prior to their shots tested negative for parasites. They received their first Distemper Combo shot at 6 weeks of age, and they received a clean bill of health at 7 weeks of age at Gettysburg Pike Animal Hospital where they were microchipped. Our organization pre-pays the registration fee on the microchip for our adopters. If you would like to meet these puppies, please apply at http://homewardbound2u.rescuegroups.org. Carla Hughes will process your application and will then hand you off to Tiffany the foster mom. These puppies are New Cumberland Pennsylvania 17070, so please MapQuest the city to make sure you are willing to travel that far.

The vet noted she will be 30 to 40 lbs. The vet also commented on her narrow nostrils that are very common in breeds like bulldogs. The owner will need to be cognizant that during hot months they will need to limit her time outside. Bulldogs simply don't handle heat very well.
