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: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Nina, 8 yr., spayed, Australian Cattle Dog mix Nina urgently needs her own home and family!! Through no fault of her own, Nina has spent too much time in and out of fosters and shelters. Her savior has rescued her a couple of different times and is currently paying to have her in a home but she can’t continue and Nina deserves a forever home. She is currently located in Burbank. Here’s what her sponsors have to say about her: Nina is a 7-8 year old, female Australian Cattle Dog mix (50 lbs.). She is a very sweet girl and is friendly to people of all ages. Nina is very intelligent and knows all basic commands. She loves walks, hikes, car rides, or just being at home with family. She loves children & lived in a home with children for 5 years, so she would do great with a family, or just one person. Because Nina has been shuffled around so much, she may be nervous if left alone for long periods of time. She will do best with someone who is home most of the time. Nina is a happy and loving girl and will make someone a great companion. Are you that person?

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Molly, 11 month, spayed, Border Collie/Queensland mix 11 months old, Molly is winging her way to CCHD Rescue today, care of Pilots n Paws and pilot Pete's generosity! Molly has been at the Hesperia Shelter, hoping to get sprung. Today was her day! She'll have many more big days from here on out. I was told she was HIGH energy... nope, she's a normal dog. Her owners turned her in and maybe felt guilty about doing so, and felt they had to say some not very nice things about her. The #1 reason she was sent to the shelter, she wouldn't leave the 16 year old Tortoise, alone. So, maybe a home with no free roaming tortoise? Her energy is easy! She is a lovely and calm dog. She integrated seamlessly. Playing like mad with the other herders, her kinda dogs! Can't wait to see her run in the woods! We have a lot going on, so in a couple days. She flew here without a peep, says her chauffeur, Pilot Pete. And I can vouch for the same, loose in my van on the way from the airport. One thing I have to remark on, she learned to eat from the self feeders, and she's so good with all the others eating right next her, she even stuck her muzzle where it didn't belong, in Mike's feeder, and it was no-thing!! Come see Molly - she's awesome!

      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.

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.

Belle is chilling in a huge yard with lots of straw filled dog-loo's and enclosures to be protected from this California cold!
