Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Catahoula Leopard Dog. 2 yr., neutered, Cattle Dog /Catahoula Say 'hi' to Ted... quietly, he's nervous! Ted came here with his sister/mother, who knows, Tessa from the small Orange Cove Shelter. Sometimes you wish you knew a dog's story. How could they be SO messed up?! Ted is one of those dogs. He's fearful and under socialized. Been working with him, and experience has proven that they are all reachable. The kind of progress I'm grateful for, he sniffs other dogs, comes in to sleep on a dog bed of his own volition, housebroken, not terrified of me anymore, eats grass on walks... walks on a leash. I can touch him... I'm tellin' ya, it's the little things that are enormous with some of these guys! Ted needs a special adopter, one who might understand what Ted is going through. He could just be left alone to exist, but I would love to see him with someone that would touch him every day, take him on walks, expose him to things. This is when I've seen the most improvements. Exposure to everything! Immersion. Was a huge deal to even force him to sleep in a dog bed next to me! Once he did for a few days, he expected it! Routine is key! Dogs are incredible, you can reach them through routine. Still working and he has all the time he needs...

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.

      Posted Breed: Jindo (Korean) (short coat). Dex, 3 yr, neutered male, Jindo mix Dex is a large, gorgeous Jindo type dog with very unique markings. He’s about 3 years old and 80 lbs, and is quite strong and athletic, but has a big cuddly marshmallow personality. Dex is a bit of a velcro dog, he wants to be where his person is as much as possible. He would do great with someone who has working dog experience, who knows how to be a leader, is active, and is either home a lot or would be able to take Dex along with them. Dex is a dog that needs exercise and stimulation, and really thrives when he gets it. He is interested in other dogs, but needs some help with introductions, we’re working on that. Dex is being crate trained but prefers just laying near to wherever his human is. He is housetrained and walks well on the leash. If you’re looking for an active, devoted, and cuddly companion, Dex is the one for you! He is being fostered in Huntington Beach.

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). Stan, young, neutered, Queensland/Border Collie Stan is a Queensland Heeler / Border Collie mix. They think he's about 2, although I think he's younger... nice teeth. Stan is friendly, outgoing, good in the car, hops right in. He's been very good with the other dogs. No issues. He knows how to use my dog door, but I had to watch him, he didn't know outside from in... handled that. But he may need a reminder at his new home. This is one very well adjusted dog. No idea why he wound up at Monterey Animal Services, but he wasn't in good shape. He had tapeworms and flea allergy dermatitis. But with proper nutrition and worming meds, he looks fantastic. I never would have known he had any skin issues in the past. He's been treated by a vet and everything is resolved. Stan is living it up at CCHD Rescue, and loving the freedom he has here. No kennels for you Stan! Interested?

Sam (Sonny II), 4 yr., neutered, Aussie/Border Collie Through no fault of his own Sam (Sonny II when he was with us) is available again. His current family is moving and can't take him along. He needs a dog-savy person so he can be his awesome self and is currently being fostered in Fresno. Here is what his current family has to say: Sam is a very lovable 4 year old Border Collie/ Aussie. He will spend the day chewing his chew toys, fetch endlessly, play tug of war, and swim till he can barely move his legs. After Sam has worn himself out playing he will come up and snuggle you close. He is currently in a home with another dog and they get along great. He is house broken, doesn’t chew anything but his toys which he will shred if he can. (So no shreddable toys for this guy!) Sam goes on walks well and has gone on overnight backpacking trips. He currently plays in a house of 3 kids aged 13, 15, and 18. We are moving and can’t take Sam with us. ;Adoption fee is $200, to cover vetting, transportation, micro-chip + registration.

Belle came from Corona Animal Control. She'd been there a while, and like most sensitive herders, she had had enough of the confinement and the shelter was not going to keep her there much longer. So thanks to some very concerned volunteers, Belle was represented to me, arrangements were made, and here she is! Introductions were made quickly with the pack. Uneventful, just like we aim for. Belle is chilling in a huge yard with lots of straw filled dog-loo's and enclosures to be protected from this California cold! She really is great with the pack... even though she stole a cow hoof from Brick, Brick just let her do it. Gotta love well balanced dogs... Belle is very healthy, available and would make for some really nice even company! She could lose a couple pounds, but... so could I...

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Paso Robles, CA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Nina is a 7 year old cattle dog mix who is in foster care. She's located in the Manhattan Beach area. And weighs 50 lbs. She is a wonderful dog but her foster, and primary caregiver, a 73 year old gentleman who is quite active. And caring for her the past few months, can no longer. Prior to this time (6 years ago), Nina was taken in when it was discovered she'd been living in a cage at her veterinarian's office for a year. Nina began getting daily walks and continued to live at the vet hospital. After 6 months, a home was found for Nina. Recently, following the July 4th holiday, Nina's saviors found she'd been taken to the Carson Shelter. Her owners had divorced and Nina was traumatized and began escaping from her new residence. They no longer wanted her. The original person who got her out of that cage at the vets is now who is 83 years old, bailed her out again and after a few months found the foster home she is in now. It was hoped this would be a forever home, but Nina's foster informed us recently that Nov 15th is the last day she can remain with them. Nina will not be put back in a cage! Spent too much of her life this way. She is a well-trained, wonderful dog! She loves life! She loves walks, hikes, car rides, or just being at home with her family. Nina loves children so she would be great with a family, or just one person. She is a young 7-8 year old -- Energetic & happy! She will a best friend for someone.
