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.

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.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). BUSY! Super energetic and sweet! Loves to lick faces, cuddle, and go on walks and runs around the neighborhood... still very much a puppy though and still needs work on her basic training. She is house/potty trained, knows sit/stay/lay, but still has tendencies to chew things or go through the trash if left home alone and unsupervised. Would probably do best in a home with either other big dogs or on her own, she is too much for a small dog. She LOVES to play and wrestle with the other dogs, and play chase, and play with the toys. Needs an active home with someone who is willing to play with her and lives an active lifestyle looking for a fun loving dog. her adoption fee is $40 she is spayed/vaccinated/vet checked/microchip ($10) come adopt her at AZDA 2201 S. 19th ave phx 85009 open daily 11-6pm

      Breed: Chihuahua

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Poor Precious, she was found stray with her friend who was so matted you could not even see the dogs face. the neglect that happened to this girl and her friend is outrageous. We have had a rough week of seeing some very neglected dogs coming into AZ Dog Adoptions. We are grateful that at least they escaped or were dumped from their owners and have found safety and care here with us. taking in a constant flow of neglected medical dogs weighs heavily on our finances but we just cant turn them away. Precious has severe hair loss and skin infections. We are in need of donations for her vet care, along with a foster who will love her while she recovers. If you can help with a donation for her care please call our vet bethany animal hospital 602-242-1657 and you can pay with credit card for donations of $25 or more, let them know its for AZ Dog Adoptions account for precious. you can also paypal or chase quick pay to azdogadoptions@gmail.com. If you can help by fostering please email us at fosterazda@gmail.com

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Carolina Dog / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). My name Brody, I'm a large German shepherd/Carolina Mix searching for a family who loves a giant cuddle bug and loyal companion. A few of my favorite things are big kisses, going on adventures, and sitting/ cuddling up next to my human friends. I am very well behaved, housebroken, good with other dogs of all sizes and like to play fetch and chase ball. I am very good with children even the little ones can snuggle and love me. I am a loyal and loving companion, who has one fault only (I am seriously perfect otherwise) My fault is I hate to be left alone, so I MUST have a home with a yard where I can be put outside when left alone. Thats it!! My adoption fee is $40 I would love to meet you, so come on down to AZDA located at 2201 s 19th Ave, 85009. open daily from 11-6
