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. 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: Border Terrier / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Biscuit, 2 yr., neutered, terrier mix Biscuit, Salsa (brother and sister) and their other litter mates were rescued from deplorable conditions. Possible cattle dog/ terrier and some of the siblings looked like little golden retrievers. So they are little mixes. They came to Second Chance At Love Humane, filthy, and malnourished. These sweeties are now healthy, happy and ready to find new homes. Weighing in at around 20 lbs, plus or minus, and not yet 2 years old. Typical playful dogs. Love to go on walks and enjoy playing with other dogs. All they need now is a home to call their own. They were stellar at the May 20th adoption event and loved the attention – even in the 90+ degree weather! CCHD Rescue fell in love with these little sweethearts and we're on a mission to get them new homes! It would be amazing if these two got adopted together but they’ll be fine going to separate homes.

      Breed: Australian Kelpie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (short coat). Cillian, 18 mo., neutered, Cattle Dog/Kelpie mix Cillian is in a predicament and needs a new home with a little less social activity than his current home. He is about 18 mo. old, neutered, weighs about 55 lbs. and, best guess, is Cattle Dog/Kelpie. He’s located in Redwood City and here’s what his current guardians have to say about him: Since he was adopted, Cillian has been living with an 11 & 13 yr. old and their parents. Every week he goes for a playdate to work out some of his boundless energy with other dogs. He always gets a good report from the staff and has fun playing with the other dogs. He has completed 2 obedience classes and knows how to sit, stay, lie down, shake and can even “fist bump”. However, his household is a very social one with people always coming and going. When he gets walked, Cillian sometimes strains at the leash and barks defensively to keep others away. He is very loyal to “his” people. He sometimes barks/pulls on his leash with some dogs as well, if they are on a walk. He has never been around cats but will chase squirrels. Much as they love him, his owners realize he is never going to be the therapy dog they were looking for and would be better off in a new home that has a little less social activity going on. Cillian would love to be in a quieter home with experienced dog owners that have the patience and understanding he needs. Could that be you?

Found him tied up in the back when someone started cleaning the property out. Obviously he's a mix, and he really looks like the smallest Swiss Mountain Dog (Entlebucher Mountain Dog). Maybe mountain Dog and Border Collie... we see many of them. He was shy initially, is very sweet, allowed Raeanne to put a collar and leash on him easily, and walking really well on the leash, already housetrained and crate trained. Listens really well. He has a broken lower canine. But overall, very nice guy! He's currently in Huntington Beach but will be making his way to Paso Robles soon - if he's here that long!

He is very smart, quite strong and athletic, and 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, preferably in their lap lol! Dex is not for a home with small children, he's can be a big goofball and might knock them over by being too friendly. He would do great with someone who loves outdoor exercise and activities, and is either home a lot or would be able to take Dex along with them. Dex, like all working dog breeds, is a dog that needs exercise and stimulation, and really thrives when he gets it. He is interested in other dogs, but needs to be introduced properly. Dex is completely housetrained and crate trained, he will run right into his crate when told to, but prefers just laying near to wherever his human is. If you’re looking for an active, devoted, and cuddly companion, Dex is the one for you! He is being fostered in Huntington Beach.

Currently in Huntington Beach but will be making her way to Paso Robles if she doesn't get adopted first. She's little, 40lbs, Mcnab type BC. Obviously gorgeous girl! Came in very shy, scared, had not been on a leash ever, allowed Raeanne​ to put a collar and leash on her, and then they moved very slowly, Next morning she even walked a little way before panicking. Smart girl but needs someone understanding and patient to show her the ropes. No aggression at all, just very shy. Likes to be brushed. Shatzi is improving all the time but, at this point, her new owner needs to be experienced with herding breeds of dog as well as one that has not been socialized. In all these pictures she's not posing, she's scared because of the leash and not sure what to make of the camera, but she sure is photogenic!
