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.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. IN VERMONT** Meet handsome Bentley!!! Here is his video with his BFF Bella: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPoOI0-XzyU&feature=youtube_gdata Bentley is 2-3 years old, approx. 39 lbs., vaccinated, and neutered. He lost his family due to mold in their home; everything that is familiar to him, a new baby and another on the way, his BFF Bella he now has to be separated from as she is wanted but he is not much to our sadness He is house trained and crate trained. He LOVES to go for hikes, walks, loves to play, loves the water, and loves attention from his humans. Bentley now much prefers a calmer environment where this is not a lot of "comings and goings". Bentley is med/high energy and is your classic 4 legged happy toddler. He needs a training regime to provide structure and discipline because he currently is so confused about his "role" in any pack. He learns quickly and given time with patience he will be your furever loyal friend. Without Bella we need to see and hope he will flourish. Older children would be preferred as he needs predictability and respect of his space. Bentley knows basic commands such as Sit, Come, and Stay. He loves to run, play fetch and needs someone that has the time and energy to provide him training on proper behavior.

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.

Sailor is crate trained and likes to go for rides in the car. He prefers to be the only dog; he gets along great and is bonded with his caretakers kids but is becoming protective of them. He currently lives in a busy neighborhood so we would love to see Sailor move out to a rural area and enjoy lots of exercise. Sailor has a low to medium energy, and knows Sit, Stay, Come, Off, "let's go" for walking - almost Heel. He looves his toys, rawhide bones, kongs, and is happy to play frisbee and ball. Sailor also enjoys his daily walks. He loves to chase after squirrels and search for rodents in the yard or on walks. He needs to be in a home with older teenage kids that have a predictable energy. He is smart, sweet, loveable, and patient but his current environment is not working for him; he is being isolated more and more because he is being protective of the children so he is regressing which happens with more isolation and needs a home as soon as possible.
