Visit our website to complete a foster application www.Passion-4-Paws.org Disclosure: Breed labels are often incorrect: we rarely know the genetic lineage of the dogs we rescue. Many shelters and rescues specify breeds based on appearance; however, research has shown that less than 2% of a dog’s DNA determines appearance! Passion 4 Paws does not practice the use of labels pertaining to compatibility with others or dog breed. Labels such as “dog friendly” and “child friendly” should be used with caution as they often over-simplify the personalities and behavior of dogs.

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.

Paige just wants to play, play, play! She is like a puppy with a new life! Paige is such a loving little dog you'd be hard pressed to find a better cuddlier canine. She is very playful and loves to leap and bound around the yard! Loves meeting other dogs properly (prefers males) and her ideal dog mate would be of similar size. She wants to play but has not been around enough of them to have learned social skills and would be good with a tolerant doggy companion that can teach her proper manners. She is great with kids, has a medium energy (she’s the type that will want to do as much or as little as her person wants to do), is kennel trained, non destructive, she only gets vocal if other dogs are playing and she can’t join in. She has no “protection mode” and will not bark at strangers in that manner. Once in a home, she’ll be quiet as a mouse! Paige is incredibly affectionate and loving! She enjoys playing with a rope toy hanging from a tree branch and LOVES to bite the water hose! She wants to be around people and loves everyone; probably because we found her neglected way out in back of a yard chained to a dog house with no attention and no food/water.

      Posted Breed: Retriever / Mixed. **IN VERMONT** Meet Shelby; more pictures and video to come! Shelby is approx. 6 years old, about 78 lbs., vetted, neutered, and micro-chipped. Shelby is the sweetest fella; friendly with other pups and people! He is potty trained and prefers to be with his humans; likes to chase cats so cats probably not an option. He is learning the world; its all new to him! Shelby spent the majority of his life in a 10x10 pen as a breeding dog in the Amish country.........then was unnoticed at the shelter in Ohio for 3 years until we found him and wanted to rescue him! Now he is in a loving foster home finally soaking up all the attention he can! Young children are unpredictable so Shelby is a bit shy and would prefer older kids to play with. He is very low key and has low energy but loves to go for walks and does well on leash. He has had so little human interaction that he hasn't had a lot of practice at basic commands but is eager to learn. This sweet and handsome gentleman would make a great companion.

Should have named him "Bronx"! Winston is approx. 2-3 years old, male, neutered, vetted, micro-chipped, and about 58 lbs! Winston is a wiggle butt; he loves people and kids and is always so incredibly happy. He knows sit and is learning wait. He is a sponge for knowledge, loves to go for runs, walks, hikes and is learning how to ride in a car (he is a bit clumsy in a car). He is housetrained and is learning what a ball is. We think Winston has not had much attention in his past nor did someone love him enough to show him the ropes! Someone probably got him as a cute puppy then discarded him while neglecting his basic needs. This fella is so incredibly handsome with red/gold eyes that match his fur; he has a cute underbite. For commands Winston knows Sit, down, bow, touch He is very treat motivated and learns quickly. He is in the process of learning proper doggy social etiquette but would prefer to be the center of attention! He loves to be with people, follows you everywhere, like to sleep with you, like to play fetch, loves to learn trick and does well with obedience training. Highly food motivated. Loves food, belly rubs and people. He would be best with older kids that aren't so unpredictable.
