Posted Breed: Terrier / Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Ellie, a 10 lb., sweet, loving, 8-9 yr. old, female, Terrier/Spaniel mix. This little girl was surrendered to the shelter by her owners just because she was getting old. How sad is that! This little girl was so scared when we saw her at the shelter... we just knew she would not make it there one more day...we had to get her out. She is now safe and sound with us. She is so loving and has plenty of good years ahead of her. Our Vet said she is in great health and just needs a loving home. Poor Ellie was not taken good care of by her previous owners and has some fur missing due to fleas...but we have taken care of that and she is now on her way to having a beautiful fur coat as she is meant to have! Ellie is calm in nature but still loves to go on walks. She also enjoys just cuddling in your lap. If you are looking for a wonderful pet/companion, then Ellie is the gal for you! Please open your heart to Ellie, her only wish is to get a home! Could you be the one? If interested, please go to www.doggies911rescue.org and fill out an application. Ellie is current on all vaccines, fecal test, deworm, vet exam, dental, micro chip, and spay. WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS OUT OF STATE. If you are interested, please go to www.doggies911rescue.org and fill out an application to possibly adopt. WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS OUT OF STATE.

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: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). ”This poor guy had the worst luck... he lived as a stray for a long time, then was captured by animal control and ended up at the shelter. The workers wanted to help him, so they tried to groom his matted hair (not knowing he was in so much pain internally), so when he bit one of the workers to protect himself from experiencing more pain, he was sent to a 10 day quarentine. Once the quarentine period was over and the shelter released him to us, we took him to the hospital, the vets ran some tests and realized that something was seriously wrong with him. They called me back to the hospital late at night, and I had to rush him to an emergency hospital for surgery. The surgery revealed that he is a dog full of surprises! He has only one kidney, and the surgeon found a sac filled his urine that was NOT his bladder! Luckily, the specialists were able to fix him up and save his life.” written by Hope for Paws Hugo is 3 years old, Poodle mix.

This little girl was found as a stray and brought to our local shelter. A good Samaritan that volunteers at the shelter saw how sweet she was and just knew she deserved a good home. She was brought to us and we fell in love at just how sweet she was. She walks perfect on a leash, crate trained and loves her toys!

This is a great dog and we are looking for just the right person/family to adopt her. Bailey will make for a wonderful addition for just about any family that knows and loves the breed.
