Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Cobe is a good dog who was dealt a bad hand. He is 8 years old and about 50 pounds.Years of neglect have left him in an unhealthy state. Cobe is very heavily loaded with heartworms and they have done damage to his heart, liver and kidneys. He needs a nice hospice care home where we he can live out his days resting in the sun instead of stressing out in a kennel environment. If you have a place for this sweet guy please email us at rlrdogs@gmail.com and we will work with you to see if he is a good fit. We will waive his adoption fee for the right home for Cobe.~Adoption donation accepted. All vetting is up to date but Cobe is unable to be neutered because of the surgery risk. He is on flea and tick prevention and is on a slow kill heartworm treatment plan. Visit www.ruffloverescue.com/adopt to make this pup a member of your family

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.

      Breed: Boxer-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi my name is Candace, and I was born sometime in 2011. The people who I thought loved me took me to the shelter to be put to sleep. A sweet lady heard about me, came to pick me up, and saved me from losing my life. I am an affectionate girl who wants nothing more than to be a couch potato. I would like to be an only dog. My foster mom has cats, but I don't pay them any attention. I would do good with older children. I'm spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, crate trained, house trained, and on heartworm/flea/tick preventatives. If you are interested in adopting me, go to www.ruffloverescue.com/adopt/app.php and fill out an application. My adoption fee is $150.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). Those ears!!! Niobe is a 4 year old Shepherd mix. She was a single pregnant mom at the shelter. She had her puppies in our rescue and they have found homes. After everything she has been through, she is shy and slow to trust. Her family will need to be patient with her, and understand that she sometimes needs her space. Niobe has a very gentle soul, and despite her fear she has never even offered to growl or bite. She generally gets along well with other dogs and is fine with cats, but would do best in a quiet home with no young children. Niobe is nervous on leash and in public, so she needs a securely fenced yard. ~~ Adoption donation $200. All vetting is up to date. Microchipped and spayed.
