Posted Breed: Terrier / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Buster is looking for a parent to love him. He is 3 years old (as of 12/2015) male terrier/heeler mix. Energetic and fun, Buster gets along with other dogs. He's anxious to please and still has a lot of puppy play left in him. He is about 40 pounds. Buster has come a long way and is ignoring the cats. No aggression, he is simply giving the cats the right of way. He is real clever and very funny! The adoption fee is $100 for each dog. This includes a coupon for spaying/neutering if the dog is not old enough to be altered already. (These prices are subject to change without notice.)

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.

    • Blue Lacy-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Thorndale, TX, USA

      Breed: Blue Lacy-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Blue Lacy / Mixed (short coat). Sadie is a 1-2 year old (as of July 2017) Blue Lacey mix. Everything about Sadie says Blue Lacey except for the color. Sadie is black and white, she is compact at 35lbs. She is athletic and playful... house trained and spayed. Wants to "hunt" the cats and chickens but doesn't hurt them or bite at them, she doesn't know what to do if they don't want to run, if she can't chase then that is the end of her game. Her manners are improving with basic commands and Sadie wants to please. Training Sadie would be fun and there is potential for agility training with her higher energy and athleticism. She shows some interest in playing fetch. Gentle and trustworthy with other animals and people, but probably not a good fit for a home with small children as she needs plenty of exercise and attention. Sadie was an owner surrender due to her ability to climb or jump fences and stray from home. She really just wants to be with people so separation anxiety and loneliness may be the thing to avoid to keep her home. She doesn't tear up her toys and doesn't seem to be a chewer so your shoes might be safe if you keep the occasional rawhide handy. Walks nicely on a leash and when she has freedom she is a flash around the pasture of her foster home. Sadie comes when called and accepts kenneling with verbal command. A real beauty! The adoption fee is $100 for each dog. This includes a coupon for spaying/neutering if the dog is not old enough to be altered already. (These prices are subject to change without notice.)
