Posted Breed: Shepherd / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Hello! My name is Charlie! I used to roam the streets of a neighborhood in north Mississippi and really didn’t trust people much until I came to Southern Friends Animal Society. That was over a year ago and I’ve been here learning to trust people and enjoy their company! They say I’m doing wonderfully because I like meeting new people as long as they let me check them out first! I’m a single guy, but I have roommates because I enjoy the company of other canine friends. I’m a handsome black and gold/tan medium-sized boy of about 4 years who is up-to-date on my shots, neutered and now heartworm NEGATIVE (on preventative). I’m looking for my forever home and would love to meet you and your other canine(s) if you think you would be interested. Just email my caregivers at sfanimalsociety@gmail.com if you would like to meet me and we’ll go from there! I hope to see you soon! ~Charlie VOLUNTEERS ALL FALL IN LOVE WITH CHARLIE. He is a wonderful, healthy pup who would love to be your dog's playful companion! He's the perfect size, not too small, not too big. He LOVES to play with other dogs, so for his happiness, we recommend he be adopted into a home with one or more other playful dogs. Charlie is house and crate trained and can live indoors or out.

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.

She was not doing well with the cats in her home so it was best to find her a home without cats. Dot is one of the calmest of the bunch! She's playful and healthy!

      Location: Nesbit, MS
      Posted Breed: Hound / Labrador Retriever. Hello, I'm Apollo! I was recently pulled from a local shelter by Southern Friends Animal Society and am such a happy boy! I'm about 10 months old and love to play with toys and people. I'm not too small or too big, but am FUN SIZED! :) I greet people with a wagging tail and am ready to play or get some lovin' when I see them. I love other dogs as long as they are playful and want to play with me! They haven't had any small children around me yet, but I know I'd love them because they're fun sized too! BOL I'm not much of a barker. I did show them that I can "sit" for a treat! Let SFAS know if you want to meet me and perhaps make me a part of your family! Love, Apollo Apollo is UTD on shots, neutered and on heartworm preventative. Apollo was born with a bone defect in his back right leg and has a slight limp, but that doesn't stop him from running and playing!
