A fully fenced yard is also a requirement for adopting Jack.

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.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tenafly, NJ
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Laverne and Shirley are 4 year old Chihuahua sisters who were surrendered to the shelter. Their previous owner didn't even tell the shelter their names. They are wee pad trained as well as outside. They walk well on leash and are good with cats. They can be a little shy at first - who can blame them - but warm up quickly. These girls are not big barkers unless someone comes to the door. They are spayed and up to date on vaccines. Laverne and Shirley will only be adopted together. Because of their size any children must be 13 or older.

      Breed: Toxirn
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Tenafly, NJ
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Cairn Terrier / Mixed. These two are the definition of unconditional love. Together, they quietly follow their foster mom and family around, wagging their tails. Princess (light hair, 10 yrs., 6 pounds) makes tiny hops of joy when she is happy, particularly when playing with her stuffed toys. Bleu (dark hair, 12 yrs., 7 pounds) is delighted when someone is petting him. Their favorite thing to do, however, is to snuggle in a warm lap, and since they are so small, they can both fit in a single lap! They are exceptionally calm and affectionate. They are housebroken and crate trained, friendly with kids and dogs, and filled to the brim with love. They were raised together, always watch out for each other, and are beautiful companions for life, so they must be adopted together.
