Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Tia is a strong-willed girl (read: stubborn but with some manners, haha) who needs someone to be the boss. She needs some work on a leash but does better in a harness. She is extremely strong and is looking for the right person who is able to handle her. Tia is a low-energy dog who likes to alert staff when she sees someone she doesn't recognize. She has been known to scare strangers with her big bark, but when staff pulls her out of her kennel she calms down. She loves to go outside and sniff the grass and could spend hours lazing around in the play yard. While she won't play with any toys that we have here, she does enjoy treats and is extremely smart! Tia likes getting all that undercoat brushed away and creates a strong bond with people she loves (which is all staff here at JCHS!). Tia keeps her kennel extremely clean and is believed to be housebroken. Although she has not been tested with children, we believe that older, more considerate children would be an excellent match for Tia.

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.

      Location: Valley Falls, KS
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). What can we say about our Hezzy boy except that he is AWESOME! Hezzy came to us after a concerned citizen saw him on the side of the road in a rough part of town. He was limping, had a swollen jaw, and many scars on his face. He was extremely dehydrated and far too skinny. After some much needed medical attention, it was discovered that Hezzy had a fractured jaw, a fractured elbow, and a sprained wrist. We had to amputate his front leg, and since then this boy has really come out of his shell! It was blatantly obvious how painful that leg was for him. We are still discovering Hezzy's personality and encourage you to come meet him!
