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.

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). UPDATE 10/4/17: Paco is on a sleepover tonight and we were told he is quite the lover! He didn't even pay attention to the cats, either! Paco is a little guy who recently came to us from a rural shelter. He is doing well in his foster home with other dogs. He never meets a stranger, is happy and learning more about home life! Paco is UTD on shots and will be neutered before going to his forever home. He is also heartworm positive and will be treated for that. We are accepting applications on him now.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Kimmi was brought in from a local shelter and was a shy dog. We have worked with her to help her learn to trust people and she has come a long way! She loves all of our volunteers, enjoys being petted and loved on. She's a small/medium girl. She is HW+ so we are asking for a foster to step up to help get her through her heartworm treatment. We'll cover the cost of the treatment, but she needs a quiet place to help her through it for about 30-60 days. Let us know if you live in the North Mississippi area and can foster her for us!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). My name is Kensie. I came here as a stray and am loving it here. I get food, water and lovin' on a regular basis! I enjoy playing with toys and people. As you can see, I'm quite photogenic! I also love treats (that's how they got me to look toward the camera) and know "sit". I would prefer a home where I am the only pet so I can get all of the attention and would do best with children 10 years and up. Kensie is UTD on shots, heartworm negative and will spayed soon before going to her forever home.

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Ruby came to Southern Friends from a hoarding case along with her puppies in tow! We didn't really know which ones were hers and which belonged to other Momma dogs because they all shared the responsibility of feeding and caring for them. Her puppies have all been adopted now so it's Ruby's turn! She is a little unsure of new people for about a minute, but when they sit down she gets more comfortable with them. She's a pretty girl and a little on the independent side. It's recently been discovered that she likes to play Pat-a-Cake & bounce on your lap! LOL She is UTD on shots, heartworm negative and spayed.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Akita (medium coat). Bonnie is still looking for her forever home! Clyde got adopted so she really wants her own family. UPDATE 12/25/16: Bonnie is in a foster home with Clyde while going through heartworm treatment. She should be ready for her forever home in about two weeks! She wants to play with the puppy in the foster home (but has to take it easy for now) and she does get bored easily, but she also minds well. She's doing great in her crate and no accidents in the house! She loves everyone. She enjoys stuffed animals and "guards" them from the other dogs. She's always a HAPPY girl! Hi! I'm Bonnie and am new to Southern Friends! I was rescued along with my sidekick, Clyde, off the streets of Memphis by a Good Samaritan and am so happy to be safe now. I'm a sweet, lovable girl who LOVES belly rubs! I also have one lazy ear (my left one) that doesn't want to stand up straight, but that's part of my charm! heart emoticon I'm UTD on shots and spayed. I am light heartworm positive and am being treated. They think I'm a Shepherd mix. Contact us at sfanimalsociety@gmail.com if you are interested in meeting this beauty!

      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (long coat). Butch came in with Spencer and they have been together all of their lives. They are a bonded pair and will need to be adopted together. Both are very sweet, doing well on using the doggie door, play together and with other dogs in the foster home. They are not "lap dogs" as they won't sit still in a lap for very long! We are looking for someone willing to foster to possibly adopt them. Let us know if you are interested. Butch is the more sociable one of the two. They would do best in a home with all adults or with older, considerate children. Butch is UTD on shots, neutered, heartworm negative and about 4 years old. He and Spencer may be brothers.
