Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Could you open your home to a special needs dog?!? If so Roxy promises lots of love in return!! Roxy is a very loving dog who is house and crate trained. She actually loves her crate, and she will even go in there on her own! She loves her dog bed too! She will sleep there every night, if she is not in her crate. Roxy is dog friendly, loves walks, and does great on a leash. She does not stray from her foster, and will stay in the yard without even needing a fence or leash. Roxy is about 4 years old, 40-ish pounds, white and brindle boxer mix. She also has the cutest under bite that everyone loves. Roxy is a special dog, and you will never meet another one like her. She is hilarious and quirky, and most of all...she has a lot of love to give!! All sounds great right?!? Here is Roxy's special request... For the most part Roxy functions like a normal dog, but she does have some quirks, due to a neurological brain disorder. Roxy is willing to work on her quirks with a loving and patient owner. Roxy will show dislike (barking and growling) towards people she doesn't know, especially men, however, she would make a great guard dog! So a home without men or a Dad that is patient and willing to go slow until she earns your trust. She prefers to be in a relatively quiet home with no small children and not a lot of commotion, as this can stress her out. Roxy can be diva, as most girls can when she wants to be, which is why she needs a family with patience and understanding. Please share her story so that this special girl can have the life she deserves!

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.

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei. Dude...do you need a wingman? A good looking passenger? A new bff? An accomplice for all your shenanigans?!? Dude...I am your man!! Fat Tuesday is the name, and I am a short stout Shar-Pei mix boy, about 7 years old, and weigh around 50 lbs. After our shenanigans, I love cuddles and sitting on laps. I am super smart and continue to learn new things every day! I am also kennel trained and bark when I have to go outside. I really like outdoor time and enjoy napping in the sunshine. I love taking my time on short walks to explore and find new smells. I am a goofy bundle of energy and enthusiasm when it comes to people and playtime. Crinkle toys and playing fetch are my favorites. I get to go to work some days with my foster mom now, I of course get all the attention, and I get to play with lots of people. Wowza! I just love everybody I've ever met!! I do have one small request, when I join my forever family, I need to be the only pet by your side on our life's adventure together. Do you think you have the perfect family home for me?!? I hope so!! KIDS: Yes DOGS: No CATS: No

      Posted Breed: Shepherd (short coat). Bill Belichick is my name, what's yours? Can I call you Mom? Or Dad? You can just call me Bill, or even better, "Good Boy". No one has ever called me that before I came to Unleashed. It makes me feel really loved. You see, I haven't experienced much love in my three years. Somehow I ended up at a scary place where I slept on cement floors and cowered in the corner. It was depressing, but not much different than what I was used to. Then, some strangers drove me to a new place with lots of blankets, a big comfy bed, yummy food and even these strange things called toys. I don't know what to do with the toys, but I really love the food. I'll even eat from your hand if you are patient. Right now I am learning what it's like for humans to take care of me. The people here are nice to me, but since this is all so new and scary, I need lots of reassurance. I love other dogs as long as they don't take my food and are gentle with me. Cats are okay too. I think I might even like kids as long as they are kind. I really hope my friends at Unleashed are right and there is someone out there who will take me home and love me forever. Until then, I will keep my paws crossed. Dogs:yes Cats: yes Kids: yes

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sunshine and love!!! That is what I am.... If you look closely at me, I have heart patterns on my fur. My friends tell me that I have the most beautiful soulful eyes with magical eyeliner. In my spare time, I enjoy dipping my toes into water... Sometimes I dive in head first... And other times flattening out my whole body into the water. During our lives together, We will enjoy quiet walks together, eat dinner together, (not the same food though because ... Well I am a dog LOL), and snuggle together. (I am seriously an award winning snuggle bug!) I am 7 but have a young heart. My kennel momma's and special pals know me really well and can tell you all about me! Come meet me in person at Unleashed Pet Rescue.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). HI THERE! Oh, sorry didn't mean to shout at you! I am just super duper excited. Do you know why? Do ya, do ya, do ya? It is cuz I am ready for my furever home! How cool is that? Oh my goodness it is so cool! My name isKitty Cat and I am a one year old pretty Pitty. My name is silly, huh? KittyCat, but I am a dog! Get it? Oh man, my friends at Unleashed crack me up. Anywho, I am working on learning to potty outside. I like other dogs so long as I have a bit of time to get to know them, and they don't mind me being the boss. Older kids are the best, I hope I get to have one if my new family! I want to be the only Kitty Cat in the home, if you know what I mean, those furry felines are way too bossy for me! I love to play and to run and to play some more, oh and I talk like a real people when I get excited! I need some time to warm up to men, since there were some in my past that weren't very nice, but I am such a love bug when I get to know you. Well I gotta run, there's lots and lots to do before I get adopted. Come meet me at Unleashed Pet Rescue, pretty please with sugar on top! XOXO, Kitty Cat
