Posted Breed: Elkhound / Mixed (short coat). EST. D.O.B: 1/11/2011 More about me: Hanna is a nice dog she is timid when first approaching her. Once she has met you she is willing to socialize with you. Hanna does well with other dogs. Hanna does not do well with cats. She would do best in a loving home, where she feels loved and secure. Hanna loves the outside and loves the winter. She will act like a snow plow running in it. Hanna was dumped of with her litter mates and has never been given a chance to have a loving forever family that she deserves. Please if you have room in your heart and home consider adopting this sweet girl. If you’re interested in Hanna go to www.olivebranchwv.org and fill out an online application. Someone will get back to you ASAP. You can also come and visit her, or just give a call to get more information 304-652-1010

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.

He kept Oliver for over a year trying to find the owner. This owner was unable to keep him due to financial problems. Oliver is a very easy going dog, loves to walk, he was tied outside, while inside his kennel he hasn't gone potty, he goes to his outside area. Won't you consider him a loving home?

      Rusty / Vide...

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Sistersville, WV
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). EST. D.O.B: 01/22/2003 More about me: Rusty is a good boy, he has been with us for a while now and would really like to have a forever home and family to call his own. Rusty can sometimes be a bit cautious when meeting new people, but once he knows you he is very loving and loyal. He does well with female dogs and some male dogs are ok too. Rusty is ok with cats and should do fine with some farm animals. We say Rusty is not house broken, but he does not go potty in his kennel area if let out into the play area or walked. Rusty walks very well on a leash. He is very smart and willing to learn so I don’t believe housetraining would be an issue. Rusty would do best in a home with adults & older children. Rusty is active but not hyper he requires some exercise but not as mush as a younger dog. Some play time in a fenced yard or just a nice walk would be enough and the he could be couch potato. If you’re looking for a great dog that is out of the puppy stage and would be loving and very loyal please consider adopting Rusty. If you’re interested in Rusty go to www.olivebranchwv.org and fill out an online application. Someone will get back to you ASAP. You can also come and visit him, or you can call and find out more information. 304-652-1010
