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.

      Age: Young
      Location: Parker Ford, PA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Baby is a super cute, small (maybe 7 lbs) long-haired chihuahua mix. She gets along with other dogs once she gets to know them, but she is a little alpha diva and thinks shes in charge. She's shy when meeting new people but once she knows you, she will be the love of your life. Because of her initial mistrust, Baby would do best in a home with older children only. Email sheplover5@aol.com for more info or an application to adopt. Baby's adoption fee is $350. She has been spayed, heartworm tested negative, and up-to-date on vaccines.

She needs the outdoors and plenty of exercise to avoid boredom. She will be shy when first meeting you but will warm up and steal your heart.

      Location: Parker Ford, PA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Miniature Schnauzer / Mixed (medium coat). Potter is a cute Schnauzer/Poodle mix who we adopted out over 5 years ago and unfortunately was returned as the family dynamics have changed and they no longer wish to have a dog:( Potter is a super smart and sweet dog. He is a quick learner and gets along well with other dogs. He would do best in a home with older children or no children, as he can be touchy about some areas on his belly/back end...has a few quirks a new family would have to accept about this little boy. He does not do well with cats! Loves to be with his people and can get a little protective of them. He is completely house trained and crate trained. Would make a great companion for someone! Email sheplover5@aol.com for an application to adopt or more info. Potters adoption fee is $250 as he is an older boy, around 10 1/2 years old.

Salina is a medium energy dog. She enjoys running around, but could also curl up and sleep for a while. She is a great girl all around.

      rescue
      Breed: Border Collie
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: Parker Ford, PA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Spaniel. Smoochie is a fabulous sweet gal who spent her whole life outside living under a trailer. She had a huge mass on her stomach that made walking difficult so we decided to take this girl on. Surgeons determined she had a large inguinal hernia that was compromising her intestines and bladder. Once they went in, they found a second hernia and began the long surgery to repair. Luckily, surgery was a success. This poor girl couldnt go to the bathroom normally for many years and the stench from her was awful. All that is behind her! We are not 100% sure of her age, her previous owners said 13 but we don't feel she's that old. She still has youth in her eyes and is starting to play with the other dogs. She's a little overweight from all the years of being inactive but in the right home, she will slim down. She has been living inside for several months now and loving it! She is housebroken and learning how to be a great dog (which wasn't hard!!). If you're looking for a low key companion, look no further!! Email sheplover5@aol.com for more information or to meet Smoochie. Smoochie's adoption fee is $300.
