Posted Breed: Terrier. Meet Marisol. She weighs about 35 lbs. She is All about love and quite possibly the perfect companion pet. She barks but only enough to be a good watchdog. She jumps but only in joy and never on people or against cabinets. She corrects easily on leash and will be an excellent walking or running companion. She follows me and sits under my feet at my desk, occasionally nudging me in hopes of getting a belly rub. Crate trained and house broken. Docs think she is about 5 or 6. She is timid when you meet her but will quickly become your best friend in the right home. If you are interested in Marisol please contact our Adoption Coordinator at Info@lastchanceatlife.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.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Oceanside, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Introducing “Snowflake,” our newest winter recruit, who came to us from the local shelter on a windy, cold, and blustery winter day! But there’s nothing blustery about him — he is as calm and soft-footed, like a snowflake! We approximate his age to be around 10 years young, and he needed some minor medical attention (dental work), and now he’s awaiting a forever home while spending his days with our other “littles” at the adoption center. Snowflake loves other dogs, all people, and most of all, he loves to roll over onto his back and have you rub his belly. How can you resist? Looking for a sweet, mellow, super chill Chihuahua, you’ve got to meet this little guy! Adoption applications online on our website www.lastchanceatlife.org. More info at “info@lastchanceatlife.org”

      Breed: Doberman Pinscher
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Oceanside, CA
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher (short coat). We’re an all-breed rescue with an emphasis on saving Boxers, birds, and dogs with serious medical needs. After this recent deluge of Dobermans needing help, we may have to change our name or logo to include the Doberman breed! Lacie is no exception — while we have a LOT of dogs in our care, we couldn’t turn this sweet girl away. She was surrendered to our group for euthanasia when her family could no longer care for her. Our wonderful veterinarians at Mission Animal & Bird Hospital took one look into Lacie’s beautiful, soulful eyes, and they knew they had to try harder to save her. At this time, Lacie suffers from a deficit that is consistent with a cervical lesion (neurological/spinal issue). We are currently running more tests on her to get a more complete picture of what her medical outlook entails. For now, she is receiving anti-inflammatories and acupuncture treatments. She can walk, but she loses her balance and takes a while to regroup and gain strength to get back up if she has fallen down. Lacie has a very loving, affectionate, and SWEET-SWEET-SWEET disposition. She has quickly become a volunteer favorite at our adoption center, and we’d LOVE nothing more than to find her a foster or forever home. For more detailed information on Lacie, please email our adoption coordinators at “info@lastchanceatlife.org”

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Oceanside, CA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Gorgeous Gracie came to us a few weeks ago from Long Beach City shelter needing ACL surgery. She was immediately seen by our orthopedic surgeon, and he fixed her up and she’s been on the road to recovery — now ready for adoption! She was kenneled with another dog at the shelter, but she came to us, she’s shown to be pretty dog reactive. We’ve tested her with a submissive, calm, stable male Boxer, and she had zero issues, so we know she’s capable of liking other dogs, she’s just very selective. For now, we recommend her as an only dog or with a calm, stable male dog. She needs some leash work, and she’s learning her basic commands with #TeamLCAL. She is approximately 6 years young and has been wonderful with all the people she’s met and those that work with her from day to day! www.Lastchanceatlife.org Please see our website for information on the adoption process and to submit an adoption application or set up a time to meet any of our adoptable dogs.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Oceanside, CA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). This red-carpet superstar came to us from our friends at the SD County Animal Shelter in early February. She was an unclaimed stray, having a very large overgrowth of masses taking over her left forearm area. She went through her first phase of treatment — hoping to shrink the tumors with medications but in order to stop the spread of cancer she had her leg amputated and she is doing incredibly well now. She tested well with a submissive female Boxer, and she’s been good with some of our calmer dogs at the adoption center. She is approximately 6 years old, 65 pounds, great on leash, and she’d love to find her forever home!

I'm very attentive and pick up training and tricks easily and quickly. I'm currently fostered with a couple of other dogs and we get along great!
