Posted Breed: Xoloitzcuintle/Mexican Hairless. I have made this template up so people could apply to become pre approved to adopt an animal through HSCC who is currently residing in a shelter. When you adopt through HSCC you can foster to adopt or choose to adopt straight out. Your spay/neuter, vaccines, deworming, microchip, and heartworm test if age appropriate is all covered with your adoption fee.

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.

      Age: Adult

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Bernie.... He is such a sweet and calm man. He is mature, around 8-9 years old and has had a rough life. We are certain that his happy ending is not far away. He is skeptical of new folks, but as soon as you gain his approval, you're a friend for life. He is hanging out at a foster home and has 2 household dog companions, along with 1 household cat. He would do fine in a home with either/or, as long as he can have his own quiet "chill" spot. He's very low maintenance, loves walking on a leash, gettin in some couch time and even behaves well during bath time!! Apply today for this super sweet guy and give him the 2nd start at a life he's always deserved.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Rustburg, VA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Springer Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Looking for a walking/running/hiking partner? Looking for a fun, high energy family dog? Well meet AJ!!! AJ is about 7 years old but he still thinks he's a puppy. This fun loving dog needs daily exercise due to his high energy level. He would love to have a large fenced backyard to play in, a daily running partner and another dog or 2 to play with. AJ is great with adults, children, other dogs and cats. He can be a little shy at first but once he knows he can trust you (which doesn't take very long at all) he's your best friend. Small silly noises like plastic bags startle him, bicycles peddling by etc. but he's learning that these type of noises are not harmful to him. AJ was an abused puppy. Tied outside, the first owner never loosen his collar and it grew into his neck and had to be surgical removed. He does have some places on his neck where his hair never grew back. AJ can not be crated, he doesn't like confined places. AJ is housetrained, UTD on shots, neutered and microchipped.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Rustburg, VA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Rue has been through quite a bit in her lifetime. She first came into HSCC care in April 2015 due to being hit by a car. She had a 2 broken legs, both on the left side. She recovered beautifully from her surgeries and was adopted in October 2015. Unfortunately her new family had an unexpected situation arise and was unable to take Rue with them when they moved due the dog policy. Rue is fun young lady. She is a very laid back dog, couch potato actually but she also likes to go for walks and enjoys outside laying in the sunshine. She has a high prey drive. Small furry/hyper animals excite her so no small or hyper dogs and no cats. She currently resides in a foster home with 5 other medium size dogs and they get along great. Rue loves people and children. In her former home she was best friends with 3 small children. She is a 3 year old red nose pitt. UTD on all shots, spayed and microchipped.
