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.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

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.

Name: Roxy Breed: Great Pyr / Lab mix Approximate Age: 5-6 years Approximate Weight: Apx 75 lbs Meet Roxy! She is a very very pretty dog. She does well with children, but would do best in a home where she's the only fur-child. She is likely a Great Pyr / Lab mix. This girl loves to play in her foster's backyard, and would do best with a fenced yard. She is 5-6 years old and 75 lbs. She is a perfect mix of majestic farming dog (Pyr) and sweet family dog (Lab) and would be a great addition to a home seeking a big old lug to add to the family.

Fosters make it possible for Dogs XL to save and care for homeless and abandoned dogs! To learn about fostering dogs like Daisy Duke, please contact us at http://www.dogsxlrescue.org/volunteer/foster Name: Daisy Duke Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix Approximate Age: 4 Years Approximate Weight: 65 Lbs Currently Living at: Foster home Meet Daisy Duke, a beautiful Labrador Retriever mix girl. Daisy loves people, generally does OK with other dogs with proper introductions, and is doing well with her foster mom's cat. Daisy is a happy dog who loves to run around outside, but she also enjoys just relaxing and goes in her crate when asked. She simply adores being touched and is a velcro dog who leans into affection. Daisy Duke is very trainable and knows basic commands like sit, stay, wait, down, and off. Daisy Duke is a kitchen raider and her family will need to make sure she doesn't steal their dinner off the counter! She is a loving girl and will make a great new addition to the family. This lovable girl is still mastering leash-walking, but is easily corrected. She's also taken to snuggling with her foster doggie-siblings. Ask us about Daisy Duke! Update from Daisy Duke's foster: We have gotten her on a very regular bathroom schedule and is doing really well in the house and in her crate. She makes a wonderful walking partner, staying right by my side on a nice loose leash for the most part, and once inside she is also a terrific couch buddy/blanket. This girl loves nothing more than to press herself up against her people and get hugs and head scratches. If I'm sitting on the couch, and have a free hand (or even if I don't) she will just lay her head on my lap and look up at me with those big, brown eyes in hopes of getting some love. She also enjoys zooming around my backyard with or without the other dogs, chasing toys around the floor (which she tosses for herself), and wrestling with my cat, who always wins. I love the personality on this dog! Daisy Duke needs a loving forever home to lavish love and attention on her. Please open your heart and home to Daisy Duke! The adoption fee for this dog is $300, which includes the cost of heartworm treatment and routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Info (info@dogsxlrescue.org) for more information about this pet. ***Courtesy Post*** We are looking for homes for two adult female spayed hounds, Thelma & Louise. It's been nearly a year since their parents moved away and we took them in to find a forever home for them. Both are super sweet. Good with other dogs & kids. The tan & white is Louise. She was grossly overweight with skin problems and we diagnosed her with hypothyroid issues. She's now trim and healthy on a twice daily thyroid supplement that requires blood work every 6 months. Louise does not do well with cats. Her sister, Thelma, was also grossly overweight but has trimmed down nicely with proper diet and exercise. She has a loving personality. Ideally, we’d love to keep them together, but would consider separating them if the right homes presented themselves. The girls are currently located in Frederick, Maryland. Interested in learning more about these girls? Please email hpmv@healthypetmobilevet.com.
