Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Posted 7/1/15, and pictures updated 7/10/15. The owner died on 6/26/15 in Ben Wheeler, TX. The mother was a Blue Heeler. While we had the dogs at the man's house posted for the family to try to find homes for them, someone let the gate open to the dog pen, letting her mother and three siblings out, and her mother and one sibling were killed by something or someone. She was still in the dog pen, and we eventually found her missing sister, so they are now at our location waiting for new homes. Rayna can dig under a fence if she wants to, so she will need to be in a secure yard, or crated when gone. She seems to be content with her sister here now, so she may do better getting adopted with her sister. D.O.B.: ? 2009 Weight: 31.9 - 7/23/15 $25 adoption fee.

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: German Shepherd Dog / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Posted 12/25/06. Harry lived in Arp and had dogs dumped on his road through the years and never had the funds to fix the dogs since he lives on disability. We helped him with food and spays/neuters. The father to Haley may be Wild Thing, who appears to be a White Lab, and Baby Face is the mother, who appears to be a Hound/Shepherd mix. Harry had to move from his home in Arp, and Haley came to our location when he couldn't take all the dogs with him. Haley is very shy, so she needs a special loving home that will be patient with her and work with her. D.O.B.: ? 2004 Weight: 37.8 - 3/5/08 $65 adoption fee will pay for her spay and vaccinations.

      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Gary lost his job of 7 years when the economy went bad, and has not been able to find another permanent job yet. Gary received an eviction notice 2/10/11, and all the cats and 2 dogs at his house were surrendered to us to find new homes. Posted 4/5/11, and pictures taken 3/6/11. Lex is very sweet, but can be skittish of new people. He use to be afraid to come near me, but in a short time has become very loveable with me. Lex and his sibling were puppies at a Wal-Mart parking lot when Gary and Penny took them. The owners couldn't find a home for them, and were just going to leave them in the parking lot. D.O.B.: ? 2003 or 2004 Weight: about 50 pounds $80.00 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations. We cannot do his neuter at this time due to him having heartworms. He was never given heartworm prevention until he came here. He is too hyper to give the heartworm treatment to, so we are keeping him on prevention for awhile in hopes he can be neutered later on. If he were to be sedated for surgery, it could kill him.

      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Nathan was a stray found in February 2007. He had several patches of skin missing, which turned out to be demodectic mange, but has all of his hair back and kept it by using Nu Stock, and keeping him on Ivomec for heartworm prevention. He was skittish of people at first, and was starving, but now he is a very sweet dog looking for a loving home. He has put on a lot of weight after he was neutered, which can happen to some pets, but we are not set up to isolate the dogs for special diets, so he could really use a good home of his own. D.O.B.: ? 2005 Weight: 68.0 - 3/15/07 $65 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations.

For adoption information, please contact: William Bishop 903/283-3780 road-ranger@hotmail.com Posted 8/30/11, and pictures updated 9/25/11. William took the Catahoula mother of these puppies from a neighbor that has many dogs. William is disabled and had not been able to spay her before she got pregnant because he had spent a lot of money having her heartworm treatment done, and now he has no income at this time, so he can't afford to care for them. We are assisting William with food, worm medicine, heartworm prevention, and had the mother and all the puppies spayed and neutered. William will be keeping the mother, but needs to find homes for all the puppies. William also has one cat, the puppies are great around his cat, and he has been working with walking them on a leash.

      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Posted 6/11/11, and pictures taken 6/8/11. Harvey was found on our county road 6/6/11, and very hungry. He is a very happy and energetic dog. He is in a large dog pen with 2 female dogs, so we don't know if he is house trained or not. I tried to put another young male dog in the pen with them, and he tried to show his dominance over the other dog, so he would be better paired up with just female dogs. He is eager to be with people. He doesn't like being in the dog pen, and not being able to interact with us, but has not made any attempts of digging or climbing to get out. D.O.B.: ? December 2010 Weight: 46.5 - 6/8/11 $80 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations.

His breed is still undetermined. We have one opinion of a Terrier mix, and he has spots on his body which could indicate Red Healer mix or possibly a Setter mix. D.O.B.: ?
