Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). America's Little Sweetheart! Fionna is a Shepherd mix girl with LOADS of personality. She is outgoing, enjoys people, and really wants to spend a lot of time with her humans -- be it playing, going for car rides, or just kickin' back and relaxin'. She really enjoys the great outdoors so a family who enjoys having their dog accompany them on walks, hikes, car rides and community outings would be a great fit for Fionna. Fionna is great with other dogs and enjoys spending time romping, wrestling, and playing a speedy game of chase around the yard with her foster siblings. Fionna would make a great companion for another playful dog and in fact, she loves other dogs so much that we are looking for a home for her with a canine buddy. A fenced yard is also preferred as Fionna loves to spend a lot of time outside playing with her canine companions but a family who does a lot with their dogs but does not have a fence will be considered as well. This little gal is a great size at only 40 lbs. and she is moderately active so doesn't have huge exercise needs. She is also house-trained and crate-trained and has some obedience training. She is also very intelligent and treat motivated so there is SO much more she can learn!. She does not have much experience with cats so we would need to assessfor that if a family has cats and because she has not had a lot of experience with young children, she is in need of a home either without them or with children at least 8 years of age. This is a very loving and loyal gal... Now all America's Little Sweetheart needs is a family to call her own! Placement Requirements: Fenced yard (preferred) Canine companion for company No children under 8 years of age How To Adopt Me: Step 1: First, p lease be sure you have read this pet's entire description in order to decide whether this particular pet is a good candidate for your family. We try to include as many details as possible about each pet, including the type of placement needs and requirements they have for adoption. Step 2: Be sure to read our adoption policies and procedures before contacting us. Step 3: E-mail us to request an adoption application and/or inquire about this pet.

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: Beagle
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Pet's Bio: Daisy is just THE cutest and sweetest little girl. She has a shy demeanor (due to past neglect) but is curious and seeks attention. Once she warms up this little "daisy" of a girl will worm her way into your heart for sure! She has a silly & quirky personality and keeps her foster mom entertained with her "looks" and antics! Daisy loves to romp and play with toys and with the other dogs in her foster home. She also loves to snuggle, chew on her bone, and just lounge around like a lazy beagle. When she's outside, that nose hits the ground (like any good Beagle) so she must either have a fenced yard or be kept on leash ALL the time. Daisy would probably do best in a house rather than an apartment OR in a residence where there isn't much noise coming from other apartments or nearby traffic. Pet Details: Age: 6 years Breed: Beagle Size: approx 20 lbs Activity level: Moderate Good with dogs? YES Good with cats? Unknown Good with kids? YES, but best with kids 8+ House-trained?

YES Adoption Requirements: Another dog for companionship No children under 8 years Calm, quiet living situation Daisy just wants a home where she will get tons of attention (and maybe be spoiled a little, ok a LOT). If Daisy touches your heart the way she has ours, and you can meet her needs identified above, please consider this little cutie for your family! --------------------------------- How To Adopt Me: Step 1: First, p lease be sure you have read this pet's entire description in order to decide whether this particular pet is a good candidate for your family.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound (short coat). Pet's Bio: Leroy is a spunky, playful guy whose philosophy is that "all work and no play makes Leroy a dull boy!" He is active, playful, and because he's a hound, he is always putting that nose of his to the ground! Leroy loves to romp around the yard, play with toys, and wrestle with his foster siblings. He has such a fun-loving personality that he keeps his foster mom quite entertained! Leroy hasn't quite turned into that "lazy hound dawg" that we usually hear about, but after he plays hard, he does sleep hard too!! Leroy absolutely LOVES other dogs and hasn't met a dog yet that he didn't befriend. He is looking for a home with another dog for a play buddy. Leroy is a shy dog due to some early neglect he received but he has come a LONG way from the dog he once was. He absolutely LOVES his foster home and you'd never know he is a shy-guy there. We feel sure he would be the same once he adjusts to a new home/family. He does seem to have more fear of men and for this reason we would like to place him in an all female home or perhaps with a woman & the right man who could understand his needs. . Pet Details: Age: 6 years Breed: hound mix Size: approx 30 lbs Activity level: Moderate Good with dogs? YES Good with cats? Unknown Good with kids? YES, but best with kids 8+ House-trained? YES Crate-trained? YES ​Adoption Requirements: Another dog for companionship No children under 8 years Preference for a female household; a female & male home might work with the right family; absolutely no male-only home If hounds are your thing, or you just love a silly, quirky and fun-loving personality, the Leroy might be the dog for you! --------------------------------- How To Adopt Me: Step 1: First, p lease be sure you have read this pet's entire description in order to decide whether this particular pet is a good candidate for your family.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Pet's Bio: Mr. Personality! Bandit is an adorable boy with personality PLUS! He is sweet, loving, and wow is this guy playful! Bandit loves to romp and play with other dogs, big or small. He adores toys and will readily amuse himself with them. The best way to describe Bandit is a fun-loving guy who just loves life and is happy to express that! Bandit is going to do best in a home with another dog for companionship. He would make a GREAT companion for another dog who loves to romp, wrestle, and play. A fenced yard would be ideal for this boy so he can spend time outside romping with his canine buddy but he would probably adjust to not having one just fine. Bandit is a little reserved and shy of new people. A hand full of treats and a patient introduction, however, and Bandit will quickly become your best friend. He enjoys calm, gentle children but would not be a good candidate for a home that has young children. We have not tested him with cats but believe because of his terrier nature that he would not be good with them.

The photo collage shows a mix of his goofy side and his occasional "serious" side, but really, his mouth is usually wide open in that big happy grin! Cole is a friendly guy and loves meeting new people. In fact, at adoption events he almost always "weasles" himself in if another dog is getting attention. You might call him an "attention hound". <grin> Cole is good with children who are calm around him and he absolutely LOVES other dogs. We would like to place him in a home with another dog for companionship. We have not tested Cole with cats but because he has such a wonderful temperament we suspect he would be fine with them.

He loves to snuggle and give kisses! He's a real lap dog...but he also loves to race around and play with toys. Petey lives with other dogs in his foster home but he is not very tolerant of them. He will probably do best as an only dog where he can be the center of attention. He has never been cat-tested but we can do so if needed. Like many Chihuahuas and Chi mixes, he can be a little bit shy/nervous but is very friendly with people who go slowly and are gentle with him. He actually really likes people! Also like many tiny dogs Petey is a bit "barky" so that should be a consideration for families living in apartments. Because of Petey's tiny stature and lack of experience with children, we not place him in a home with children under the age of 10. Similarly, because of his size we will not place him in a home with a large breed dog unless the dog specifically has prior experience with tiny dogs.

When people ask us what Bella looks like, our best description is "sort of like a fox"! Bella is a sweetheart of a girl who loves food and belly rubs! She is a social butterfly who has rarely met a stranger. When she first meets you she makes SURE she gets noticed. One of her "tactics" is to sit on your feet and lean into you (looking up adoringly!) Bella is very smart and loves to learn and train. That's where the affinity for food comes in sooooooo handy! Bella is good with certain dogs, primarily males but not terribly tolerant of rowdy behavior. Her ideal home would really be as an only dog where she can be the center of all the love and attention. Bella is NOT good with cats. If it's a fun-loving, affectionate companion you're seeking, then Bella may be the one for you!
