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 / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Brody, 1 yr., neutered, Cattle Dog mix Brody is about a year old, very puppyish! Sweet and submissive with people. Brody doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. He can be cantankerous with particular dogs, but a verbal correction is all it takes to knock that talk off! He just tries to see if he can assert himself... around here the other dogs say, "uhhh no" Brody is easy. He follows me everywhere. He's sorta short and long. And he was shaved when I got him. He needs some air on his coat. He was not taken care of well, had some scabs under his thick coat. Now he's getting good baths and air on his skin. It's all dried up and flaking off. He feels way better! We headed to the creek today for some off leash action!

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Landon, young, neutered, Cattle dog mix Cool name I didn't have to think of! The shelter did. A stray from Fresno, he wound up in a good shelter, cuz now he's here! About 2 they say. Seems very young. Super puppy playful with the other dogs. Landon is shy, but coming around fast! He went to an adoption event second day here and he did great. Seems to really like young girls, a couple 20 somethings were hanging out with him at different times and he wasn't shy at all. He was so cute! Landon walks like a feather on a leash. And he's more and more happy to see me come outside, everytime I do. His first crush here was Ava and she's adopted, so he's turned his attention to Hurley. He will be great with another dog or two in his future pack. Looking for a sweet, quiet, easy to groom pup? Take another look at Landon!

He loved his pilot, Bob, of Pilots n Paws. He's here now and doing great. Easy pack integration. He is already transformed into a braver dog. He'll be no problem here. More photos and stories, to come. But Abbot reminds me of a couple dogs that were here, Specks and Chevron, who had a line of adopters, waiting to scoop them up... here's your second chance folks!

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.

      Breed: Border Collie
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Paso Robles, CA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Australian Shepherd (medium coat). Blanco, young, neutered, Border Collie cross What a beautiful guy. He is sweet with people and other dogs. He's just so balanced! Blanco is an owner surrender, not because they wanted that... he was confiscated, but when they came to get him, they were told, this chasing neighbors sheep just won't do and if it happened again... so they allowed Blanco to be re-homed through CCHD Rescue. Weird that a herding dog would be a problem with sheep, but he was running with their other dog, who was NOT a herder, it could have escalated into something bad. Blanco should not be around sheep unless with an owner who knows what they're doing. Blanco is Border Collie, and Aussie. He's slim like a Border, and fist paws like an Aussie with Aussie coloring, blue eyes, and sweet, sweet, (did I mention sweet?), disposition. Came in here after his neuter, with pretty terrible Kennel cough but he is such a trooper. It's hard to hear them having trouble and you know, you just have to let it run it's course and hope the antibiotics lessen the time. Blanco spent his first night in the house as I didn't want him alone and coughing. He was very comfortable on a kuranda bed next to me. Used the dog door during the night. He's is a doll! We'll be headed to the creek today for some off leash action!

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. She will bark at cats so desires a home without them. 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: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (short coat). Tate, 8 mo., neutered male, Cattle Dog mix Meet Tate! Tate is a herder mix puppy, probably not more than 7 or 8 months old, he weighs 40 lbs so far but has some growing to do if the size of his paws is anything to go by! He was just rescued from the Riverside county facility where he had been left in the “needs rescue” kennels in the back because he was scared out of his mind. Not anymore! Tate came out of his shell pretty quick after arriving at his foster home and is a super smart, gorgeous boy! Tate’s a “submissive happy puppy”, he seems to automatically know how to respond submissively to more dominant dogs but is not scared of them, and he does great with all dogs. He is also already responding really well with humans considering that he seems to have been left in a backyard without a lot of human contact. Tate picked up on walking on a leash very quick and, when off the leash in a backyard, he will automatically heel and follow! Tate is looking for someone familiar with herding dogs, who has the time to continue his socialization and training, and he would do great with another dog around. Also, Tate really needs a home where his people are around a lot and can give him the amount of one-on-one attention and exercise he needs, he has a lot of energy! Tate is currently hanging out in Huntington Beach. Interested?
