Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact AHS (ahspets@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. . Bran is a very sweet and affectionate two year old neutered, male dog. He looks like a stocky, miniature Broadhead Black Lab mix. He weighs around 24 lbs. He is very playful and loves to run. He adores humans and just wants to please. If you treat him with respect and work with him to reinforce what you want him to do, he will learn quickly. He was never fully house trained by his former family, and he currently stays in our shelter so has had no one to work with him, We would recommend taking him to a dog training class. Bran is neutered, heartworm negative and on the Proheart injection, and microchipped. His adoption fee is only $100.00, as we reduced his fee because he has been with our rescue for so long. Bran is in need of either an adoption home, or a foster home. If interested in adopting or fostering Bran, please fill out our prescreening application. You can find out more about our adoption process and download our application from our website: http://acadianahumane.org/catblogger/view-our-adoptable-pets/ If you are with a no-kill rescue we will consider transferring him to your facility so that we can free up space to take on more Louisiana flood victim dogs, and to give Bran an opportunity to be adopted since he is being overlooked here in Louisiana. .

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.

I live with my foster mom and she promised me she would find me a loving home. My foster mom has several dogs of her own and I get along well with all of them. I love to run and play. We play chase in the yard and tug of war. I learned to use the doggie door right away. I am housebroken. At night I sleep in a kennel. I like just about any dog treat you give me. I am very happy here but would like to be in a home where there is only 1 or 2 other dogs. Because I am a medium/large dog AHS will require a home with a fenced yard. I am spayed, current on my vaccinations, mircochipped, dewormed and started on heart worm prevention. If you have a spot in your home and heart please consider adopting me. I will love you forever. My adoption fee is only $150.00. Lick and Tail Wags, Ali If interested in adopting one of our dogs, please fill out our prescreening application.

      Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Sunset, LA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Poodle (unknown type) / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact AHS (ahspets@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. . Iggy is a handsome brindle and white dog. His birthday is January 16, 2010. His parents were a Rat Terrier and a Peek-A-Poo (Pekinese/Poodle). Iggy has very soft, wavy hair. Iggy is a small dog, with tall legs like a Rat Terrier. He has the underbite, jaw, and beautiful tail of a Pekinese, and fur like a Poodle mix. Iggy enjoys getting his hair shaved down once a year during the summer months. Iggy was a special needs puppy. Iggy apparently suffered abuse at the hands of his former owner when he was a baby. Because of that, he sometimes becomes frightened at sudden hand movements near his face. It would be best if he goes to a home with no small children to startle him. Once Iggy knows someone loves him, he is very attentive and affectionate with them. Iggy is very intelligent and wants to please. With proper training, love, and patience, Iggy would make someone a wonderful companion. Once he understands what we want, he follows instructions well. But, as an energetic young dog he does get distracted easily. Iggy is very energetic and playful. He loves to run and play. He also enjoys spending time with the people he loves. Iggy is fine with other dogs that he already knows. But, he needs to be properly introduced to new dogs or he won't like them. Iggy also gets along well with cats who like dogs. However, like most dogs, if a cat does not like him and tries to antagonize Iggy, he will bark at them. Iggy has some minor food issues that are easily solved by feeding him in a room or crate by himself. He doesn't like it when other dogs or cats come near his bowl while he is eating. This is another reason we recommend a home with older children who can be taught not to touch Iggy while he is eating. Iggy is neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots, dewormed, and on heartworm prevention. Iggy's adoption fee is only $100.00, as we reduced his fee since he has been with us for so long.

      Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Sunset, LA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog (short coat). Please contact AHS (ahspets@gmail.com) for more information about this pet..URGENT: Acadiana Humane Society adopted out a fully vetted deaf Catahoula puppy last year, that they now want to rehome. We have no room and we are not equipped to handle a 60 pound deaf dog. Moses needs a new foster home, adoptive home, or animal rescue ASAP! Moses was originally rescued from being drowned by his breeder because he is deaf. We had him neutered, and fully vetted. Moses knows sign language. However he is very energetic and needs proper training to focus that energy. Because Moses does not know how to focus his energy, he has developed some nervous habits. He is current on all vaccinations. Is heartworm negative and on ProHart injection. He does eat socks, so has had two surgeries to remove them already. While he is good with kids, he needs someone without kids that will leave socks or other things out that would tempt a bored dog to eat. He would do best in a home with female dogs, rather then male dogs. However, he is fine with male dogs that he meets outside the home. He made a year old on January 28 of this year. He doesn't seem to mind cats, however; he is very territorial when it comes to his toys and his food. It’s caused a few fights in his adoptive home, which is one reason he needs a new home or rescue. He gets along with their female dog, but not their male dog. He is fine with male dogs that he meets outside of his home. He loves ALL people and all animals. He is very playful with kids and other pups; he just doesn’t like sharing his territory with males. He is horrible on a leash. He would need someone to train him to walk on a leash. He has never tried to jump their fence, but their fence is also 6 feet high. He is a digger. He has never dug to try to get out of the fence. We think it is more of a nervous behavior, or boredom. Perhaps is someone could work with Moses and train him, he would put that energy into something more productive. He LOVES mud puddles. We're not sure how he is around water. He has never been taken him to a lake or anything due to the fact that he is deaf and they only leash him when not in a fenced in area. His family hates the thought of giving him up, but his behavior with their older male dog is getting out of hand, and it would be best if he leaves ASAP. Also his nervous behaviors are becoming overwhelming to his family, and they are currently trying to have a baby. He barks a lot for no apparent reason (perhaps boredom or wanting attention?). He will just run in circles barking around the house. His family has tried thunder shirts, rescue remedy, a DAP collar, lots of exercise to wear him out, everything short of drugging him. He needs an understanding and patient home or rescue that can work with him and train him so his energy can be directed into a job that Moses would enjoy. He is a very sweet and gentle boy and has the sweetest disposition. His owners think he would make a great pet for a home with a large, fenced in yard, and an energetic female dog to tire him out. Are there any deaf experienced rescue group that can take him please? We have emailed the ones we are aware of. If you know of any, please send us their contact info., or share this listing with them. We do have his vet records already, and he is current on everything! Thank you!
