Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Joy (nrhalnp@aol.com) for more information about this pet. This handsome guy is between 2-3 years old. He was left behind with his brothers when their family abandoned their home. The pups survived by eating whatever they could find. Luckily, Jack is now living at the Ranch, at Susan's house, where he is learning that not all people will abandon him! Shy when he first meets someone new, he quickly warms up and wants to trust. For a little patience, the great reward is a fabulous dog! Jack is current on shots and deworming. Gets along great with other dogs and cats.

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: Labrador Retriever / Dalmatian / Mixed (short coat). Lab/bulldog/dalmatian mix This gorgeous 2 year old is full of energy and loves to play with the other dogs. He adores people, but will chase a cat. He was tethered for most of his life, so he's learning how to walk nicely on a leash. Submissive to the other dogs (doesn't look it, but he's a wuss).

Fun-loving lab mix male - 1 year old Look at that smiling face! You'd never guess that a few short weeks ago Joey was wandering the streets of Nashville, NC as a stray. He became a shelter favorite, and was there for a few weeks before coming home to the Ranch. He's about 1 year old, sweet as can be - gets along great with everyone he meets. He has a lot of energy, but it's controlled energy- he always comes when called and is learning not to pull on a leash. Come meet Joey and make that smile even bigger!!!
