Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). Sara was dumped at an abandoned warehouse, picked up by a local animal control facility -Sara was then rescued by HSS. Sara is an exotic beauty -she's a compact, sweet and happy, playful pup (weighing around 40lbs.)…quite intelligent and eager to please! She adores her people, and has never met a stranger…she also LOVES to play fetch (even amuses herself by tossing the ball and catching/chasing it). Hence her breeds mix, Sara is a high energy pup -she MUST have a fenced yard- and would enjoy another companion pup(s) and/or an active/outdoorsy lifestyle ...though she much enjoys her 'lap' time too. Sara does well with other dogs her size or larger, though no small pups or cats. Breeds mix: Australian Cattle Dog mix -estimated DOB: October, 2014 -spayed -current on her vaccines, dewormers, monthly HW & F/T preventions and microchipped. Crate trained/Housebroken & Walks well on a leash. Sara will be available for meeting and adoption with an approved preadopt only! Please direct inquiries to info@southeastrescue.org &/or you may complete an online preadopt on our home site: www.Southeastrescue.org .

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.
