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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Phoenix, AZ
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). Bruce is such a sweet boy. Bruce was rescued from the desert when he was 8-10 weeks old. His mom is a feral dog who had him and his brother outside. He had no human contact until we found him. He has come along way since then, learning to love and trust humans. He is a little shy at first when he meets new people, but once you develop a bond with him it is so amazing to see him come out of his shell. Bruce is amazing with small dogs he has the patience of a saint with them. He is also very good with children and cats. Bruce has a unique trait of his breed. He has one blue and one brown eye. Each of his eyes has a speck of the opposite color in them, they are called cracked eyes. If interested in Bruce, please contact his foster mom Tina at Tina_arfanagedogrescue@yahoo.com or come see him on Sundays at the Chandler Petsmart from 11-4 at 2840 W. Chandler Blv

      Breed: Australian Shepherd-Unknown Mix

      Location: Phoenix, AZ
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). My Name is Zack I am 3 1/2 year old Shepard mix. I am so sweet and calm and a very passive boy. I am like a big cuddly teddy bear. I was adopted as a puppy, but they weren't very nice to me. Threw me out side and forgot about me. My foster mom thinks they hit me, but I won't tell her for sure. I am safe now, but I would really like a forever home where I will be loved and spoiled all the time and inside with the family and not forgotten about. I think I weight about 60- 65 pounds so I'm not huge, but not tiny either.. If interested in Zach please contact my foster mom Tina at Tina_arfanagedogrescue@yahoo.com

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Phoenix, AZ
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). This is Freya she aprox 1 1/2 she is a big cuddle bug, she loves to give lots of kisses. For such a young pup she has seemed to have had quite a hard life. She was rescued out of a canal, and was so scared, but never showed any agression. Since in foster care she's grown into an amazing character, she's better with teens and adults as she is a little afraid of young children. She is good with calm older dogs but she does not do well with Hyper dogs or puppies. She would be a great companion dog for someone looking for a young, calm lap dog. If interested in Freya please contact her foster mom Tina at Tina_arfanagedogrescue@yahoo.com

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Gypsy is a fun active Happy go lucky girl.
