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.

      Sex: Male Male

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hey there! I'm George, a 3 year old happy-go-lucky pit bull mix. I ended up at the shelter when my family moved and I couldn't go with them. As you can imagine I was sad for a while but the staff here are pretty nice and made this feel as close to a home away from home as can be! As nice as it is, I can not wait to find my forever family! I like kids but I am full of energy and enthusiasm so I could easy knock over the little ones. I would mind a potential dog or cat sibling but again they should probably be on my energy level. Thanks for considering me, stop on in to see if we could be quick friends.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Caramel may be spelled different but you can't pronounce my name without saying it! And just like the candy I am sweet as can be. You would have a hard time believing anyone could ever let me go. Let me tell you it really does happen to the best of us. But the past is the past and I'm moving on. This time around I need a cat free home but other dogs would be fine as long as we meet before going home. I promise I don't need a lot from you, just a warm lap to snuggle on and a few walks now and again. Consider stopping by HATS to meet me today.

      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed. Hello friend! I don't mean to be too forward but I have never met anyone that didn't become my best friend! I get along with cats and other dogs, humans should be 5 years or older because I am a big guy and could easily knock little ones over. If you stop in to meet me I can bet you wont be leaving alone!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). HI Hi Hi! Winona is the name and being the life of the party is my game. I am looking for a new best friend. I thought I had it all but when I ended up here at HATS my best friend never came looking for me. I want someone that will just love me up and want to take me everywhere! I do not want any feline siblings and any kids in the house hold should be 10 + just because I like to play rough.
