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: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hi there, my name is Roxy. I came into HATS when it wasn't working out between me and the other dog in the household. This time around I think I would like to be the only furry child in the house. I have a lot of love to give so I promise you wont even miss have another dog or cat. I would prefer children over the age of 10 just because the fast movements and loud noises younger ones can make startle me! If you are in the market for a new family member please consider me.

      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed. HEY! I'm Gator and I am a big guy with big personality. I came to HATS because I love to run. You see I'm a treeing walker coonhound and sometimes my nose takes me for walks. My future family should be experienced in hound behaviors in order to set us up for success.I get along with other dogs but should meet potential friends prior to going home. I also enjoy children of most ages but I will require a feline free household.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hey there, Marigold here! How I ended up at HATS is a mystery but I am very excited to move on from my past. I am hoping for an active family, maybe with a big fenced in yard to run around in. I don't mind children 10+ and we could discuss the option of other dogs but no cats for me please. Stop in sometime to meet me and my friends.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi I'm Aubrey. I came to hats in need of some serious TLC. Now that the staff has nursed me back to health I can confidently say I am ready to find my forever family. I will need a feline free household and children should be old enough to not knock over when I get really excited. I like to stay pretty active so a family who likes to go for long walks or that have a giant back yard would be wonderful! Whether you are looking to adopt or just volunteering ask for Aubrey when you stop in!
