Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. See Spot's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Spot...a girl looking for her forever home.Yes, I know Spot is not a very girly name and she will accept a name change. I am her foster mom though and the name Spot works here :) Spot is a pretty girl who was saved from out local animal control the day that her time was up. We actually went in to pull another dog that day but she was just sitting there so nicely. She had to be saved. Spot is a very sweet girl. VERY. She will gently nudge you for attention. She needs to be an indoor dog. She would not be happy outside and there is no reason to keep her outside anyways since she is kennel trained. She wants her family there with her all the time. If you sit somewhere, she will sit next to you. If you walk to the next room, odds are that she will not be far behind you. She gets along wonderfully with children. She also gets along with almost all other dogs in her foster home (too many to mention haha). She will answer any challenges though from a couple dominant females in her home so that should be taken into consideration be any potential adopters. If you have a very dominant female, she may not be the best candidate for your new family. Other than that, not too many flags. A privacy fence would be ideal because she could definitely get over a chain link fence if she wanted. Spot is current on her vetting. She is completely vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested (negative) and spayed. Spot's adoption fee is $100.

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.

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Benny is a sweet big puppy that is looking for his forever home! Benny and his sister Joon were found dumped on the side of the road. No one claimed them and since then they have been given all their shots and been spayed/neutered. Benny is around 10 to 12 months old and has lots of energy for playtime! He may not be good to be around very small children since he loves to run and play. He would love to have a nice big backyard to go play in, but needs a tall fence since he can jump 4 ft fences. Benny tested negative for heartworms and is on monthly prevention. His adoption fee is $65. If you would Benny, please fill out an application.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Ponca City, OK
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Patricia (trisha@pawfirst.com), (580) 491-2337 for more information about this pet. Update: 1/14/13 Wynter is still available for adoption but we found out he is having thyroid issues. They should be able to be treated very cheaply. As of now, he has had some hair loss that is slowly returning. Wynter is my foster dog and he is a wonderful dog. I think he will make a wonderful addition to any family and I don't want him to miss that. If you are willing to work with this kiddo, please let me know :) Why am I here? I was dumped in front of a school in the middle of a snow storm. How could you? My foster mom tells me everyday how I am such a good boy. She says all I need is for someone to give me a chance. I am always happy. She makes me smile whenever my name is called. I love it here and I know she will make sure that I get a wonderful home where I will have my very own family. Oh did I mention that I will do just about anything for some neck scratches. They feel sooooo good. How did I get in this situation? Someone dropped me off in front of West Middle School. I played and played with all the kids but when school started, I was left there all alone. That is when I saw a car and a friendly face so I knew that was where I needed to go. It was really really cold outside so this lady started calling me Wynter. She gave me a soft pillow, a warm bed, and even FOOD. I was so hungry that I gulped it all down. I have learned since then that I will never have to worry about my next meal. I have seen little dogs come and go. I am just waiting for the day when it will be MY turn. Can YOU be my family? I promise to love you always! Wynter's adoption fee is $40 and he is completely updated on all his medical needs. We have had him neutered, given him all his shots, and he is parasite-free. He is also current on his heartworm preventative. He will definitely need to be a primarily indoor dog. He is an amazing house dog. No accidents, not destructive, and content to be laying at your feet whenever you are around. Wynter has a nighttime ritual...he always gets up in the bed to get some 'goodnight' love. Then he goes to lay down in his bed. The first step in adopting one of our pets is filling out an adoption application at www.PAWFirst.com After your application is approved, we will schedule an appointment for you to meet the pet. Please understand that we do not ship our pets. You will need to personally come to meet/pickup the pet.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Please contact Patricia (trisha@pawfirst.com), (580) 491-2337 for more information about this pet. Once abandoned and now the perfect dog This is Rah Rah. She was living under a pontoon boat during the sweltering summer. She obviously had had recent puppies somewhere but we couldn't find them. It took weeks to gain her trust. She was with a male dog who was very leery of people. When they finally were able to get out of the situation, they were admitted in our vet for avaluation. I am not sure how to finish out this story because I am still shocked at what was found after she finally realized that some people are really 'good' and that she had no reason to be afraid. She is currently in foster care along with others and she is such an inspiration to have around. She is the perfect dog. There is a puppy around her and that pup drives her crazy but she doesn't mind at all. This dog is the definition of RESCUE. She was a throwaway. People saw her roaming and just ignored her or, worse.....were cruel to her. Now she is WONDERFUL! She loves life and she loves people. She is going to need to go an adopter that is wanting a best friend. She cannot be banished outside. You can tell she wants to be right next to her people all the time. She has been promised a wonderful life from this day forward. I do believe she would be the perfect therapy dog candidate.Laid back, calm, and lovable. She has been spayed, hw negative, dewormed, and current on her vaccinations. She had demodectic mange but it has been treated. She also had lots of worms but ALL GONE. PLEASE check on any possible pitbull bans in your area before applying. If you are not sure, please mail me Trisha. trisha@pawfirst.com Rah Rah's adoption fee is $125 to help cover some of her vet expenses. The first step in adopting one of our pets is filling out an adoption application at www.PAWFirst.com After your application is approved, we will schedule an appointment for you to meet the animal you are interested in. Thank you :)
