Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Love was just a word until someone cared enough to show me how amazing it could feel. Locked in a concrete cell in a kill shelter, I had little hope of ever knowing love. Then Unleashed and my foster mom saved me, now I am looking for something I never thought I could have- a forever family of my very own. My name is Roxy and I am a two year old Boxer mix. I have been working hard to get ready for a home of my own, including learning to potty outside. I do great in my crate and have learned to walk gently on a leash. I love my doggy friends and get along great with kids. I can be a little shy until I know that you will be nice to me, and men still seem a little scary to me. I will need a family patient enough to let me get comfortable so I can show off my amazing personality. I love to play and have a quirky, squeaky bark. My favorite things are sleeping with my people and chewing on bones. If you have room in your heart and home for me, please contact Unleashed Pet Rescue. Love, Roxy

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.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

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: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). I love you humans, but you guys are a little bit strange. You sit on bowls of water that dogs aren't allowed to drink out of. I have never seen you sniff each other, I mean how do you tell each other apart? You stare at those light up boxes you always have in your hand, but never bother to stare down a squirrel. I may never understand you, but I still would like to call you family. My name is Dancing Butterfly and I am an one year old Pittie. I potty outside, where all good dogs do it. I, like you, love to give kisses and hugs, but I give them away more freely. I love to chew things, you really should try it sometime. Overall I think I am pretty great, by canine standards. Can you be my human? Hoping you stay weird, Dancing Butterfly

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). This is my foster Jillian Gregg. She is a 5 year old pit mix. She is very calm & has had lots of training. She walks great on a leash & knows all the basic commands. She just wants to hang out on the couch & sleep in your bed. She would be perfect in an apartment or a family with children.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Hi! My name is Dwarf Boa, it's a silly name, I know. I'm not sneaky or snake like at all! I'm a 2 year old bullmassador and I'm living with my foster mom right now. She is teaching me to walk on a leash like a gentleman and I even have to sit before I get dinner or treats. I love the great outdoors, treats, and drinking from the hose. If you like any of those things maybe you could be my forever family! Waiting so patiently, Dwarf Boa

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Single lady ISO happily ever after. I love to dress up, am super athletic, and have a great personality.

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Mission, KS
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Gray hair? That's not gray hair, it is my frosting. I just come a little sweeter than those young pups. My name is Honey Bunny and I am an eight year old Beagle mix. I am house trained, crate trained and great with dogs/cats. I would do best in a home with older children who know how to love gently. I love to go for walks, but I am happiest when snuggling on the couch by your side. Honestly, I will do just about anything for a good belly rub. If you have room in your heart for a gentle gal like me, then contact Unleashed Pet Rescue. Just remeber, everyone loves puppies but senior dogs love everyone. Love and belly rubs, Honey Bunny **Be sure to check out my Facebook page for more info, photos, and updates!** https://www.facebook.com/pages/Honey-Bunny/1452361201728258?ref=br_rs
