Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Stephanie Rivero (stephanier@luckydoganimalrescue.org) for more information about this pet. Sweet and gentle girl looking for a FUR-ever home! TOMASA HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING- SHE HOPES YOU WILL CONSIDER ADOPTING ONE OF THE OTHER LUCKY PUPS! Name: Tomasa Breed: Terrier Mix Approximate Age: 2 years old Approximate Weight: 47lbs Currently Living at: A shelter in Puerto Rico. Tomasa will be making her way up to the DC area soon to look for her FUR-ever home! Has Lived with: Dogs Special Adoption Considerations: Tomasa has tested positive for Heartworm and is undergoing treatment. Hola! My name is Tomasa and let me tell you- I’ve already had quite the life. I don’t quite know how this happened, but somehow I ended up tied to the front of a scary place called a ‘shelter’. There were a lot of other dogs in cages and it was loud and cold on that cement floor. Then the amazing folks at Lucky Dog came to see me and now I get to travel all the way to the DC area in hopes that someone there will want to take me home. I'm waiting every day for my chance to find someone to love, cuddle, and play with! So a bit about me: I've got a really beautiful and soft grey coat with a white patch on my chest! I've also got big floppy ears- that will do whatever you tell them to (with some proper training, that is)! Right now, I’m about 2 years old and 47 lovable pounds. My age means that I am likely done growing—but no matter how big I get I’ll always think of myself as a lap dog. The folks at the shelter say that I do really well with other dogs and kids. They are not sure how I will interact with cats yet, but the folks at Lucky Dog can try to find out for you if you need to know! I’ve been daydreaming everyday about my new family, and I've decided I would love to go to a home with some folks that will take me on hikes, runs, and trips to the dog park to play with my canine friends. I don’t think I would be able to stop wagging my tail if I had my very own human who will give me lots of belly rubs and get me cool toys to play with. If my new family would take me to obedience classes so that I could use my smarts to learn tons of new tricks that would be amazing. If you think I might be the right dog for you, then please let my adoptions coordinator know! I do hope to hear from you soon! Woofs and tail wags, Tomasa Like most shelter dogs, Tomasa may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. Tomasa has tested positive and has not yet been treated for Heartworm disease. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. The fee for adoption of a HW positive dog is $450 , which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Stephanie at StephanieR@LuckyDogAnimalRescue.org!

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-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Megan Davis (megan.luckydog@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. LUCY LOO NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Lucy Loo Breed: boxer/shepherd mix Approximate Age: 2-3 years SEX: female Approximate Weight: 50 lbs Has Lived With: dogs and cats and a rabbit! Currently Living at: DC foster Special adoption considerations: Lucy Loo must go to an experienced dog owner who is comfortable working with a trainer to help her be more confident and comfortable. My name is Lucy Loo. Through no fault of my own, I found myself in the shelter with three puppies (Lewis, Lola and Larry). My puppies have all been adopted and I am excited to be in DC to find my furever home. I am dreaming of a family who will keep me active and give me lots of opportunities to socialize. I also heard that dogs with homes get to go on walks and sleep inside on their very own beds, which sounds pretty great. I am a volunteer favorite at Lucky Dog! My fosters love me because I ride nicely in the car and am great at home. I am happy staying in and watching Netflix and ordering in but also love to go on hikes and like to show a fitbit who is boss. I also enjoy roller derby and crocheting. My ultimate goal is to become a spokespup for Barkbox Super Chewer. I follow Lexy the Elderbull on Instagram and she is a real role model for me—she knows how to wear a tutu and pearls and make it look so effortless. I have lived with cats and a bunny and do well with other dogs off leash. I get nervous when I meet other dogs on leash so I need my new family to help me work on that. Because they loved having me and recognize what an amazing girl I am, my fosters have sponsored me and whoever adopts me will receive a training package (included in the adoption fee) to help me with my transition and to get settled into my forever home. Like most shelter dogs, Lucy Loo may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained. Here is an update from my foster family: Lucy Loo is such a sweetheart. She is out of the puppy stage but did not seem to have any structure prior to coming to Lucky Dog. She is eagerly learning to sit and impress us with her smarts. She is very food driven, making her training easy and fun. Lucy will do best with strong leadership from an owner as she will not hesitate to be queen of the house. She is very playful but certainly a couch potato too. She loves tug-a-war, chewing on her bones, destroying a chew toy, wrestling with other big dogs and playing fetch. Lucy Loo loves her walks but is even more excited to get back on the couch to snuggle back up to us. She has already been on a hike at Great Falls and was up for the challenge- what a rock climber she is! She does well with other dogs off leash. Lucy does amazing in cars as well- the best foster in the car we have ever had! We are so happy to have her in our home and know she will make the perfect addition as a mature mama in her forever family soon. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Megan D. at megan.luckydog@gmail.com!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Kelly Russo (kellyr@luckydoganimalrescue.org) for more information about this pet. World traveler needs a forever home! Come meet Suzi and other great adoptable dogs this Sunday, (June 4) from 12-2 pm at the Unleashed by Petco (5400 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA 22207)!!!!! SUZI NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Suzi Best Guess Breed: lab mix Best Guess Age: 1 year (as of 2/3/17) SEX: female Approximate Weight: 50 lbs Has Lived With: other dogs Currently Living at: MD foster - needs a forever home! Special adoption considerations: Suzi was recently rescued from a dog meat farm in Korea. She needs a home with a resident dog(s), an experienced adopter, and a lot of patience! While she is making great progress, she is unsure of her new environment and is shy when meeting new people. Foster Update: Suzie is doing great! She’s fully house trained and even cries at the door to go outside now. She goes on daily walks on the leash around the neighborhood and she is getting better with people coming around. She’s very social and stays with the family all the time. She willingly goes in the crate when I leave and does not cry nor show any separation anxiety. Suzi goes with the flow and follows her doggie sibling around. She never complains nor whines, she doesn't beg for food nor get into trouble and listens very well. She'll immediately stop when corrected (like when she tries to steal socks from the laundry bin!) and she is continuing to learn commands. Suzi is very curious and wants to be social, so I’m confident she’ll continue to make progress. Suzi loves to play with her doggie sibling - they wrestle, chase balls and play tug-o-war. Suzi is not a snuggler and does not get up on furniture. When she becomes more confident, she may snuggle more because she is affectionate and loves to be pet and brushed. As it says above, this 1 year old, 50 lb sweetheart just joined our Lucky Dog family after being rescued from the Korean Meat Trade. Suzi has come a long way in building trust with her foster family by spending more time with her foster mom and siblings. She listens well, comes when called and loves her toys and playing tug-o-war! It will take love and patience for Suzi to begin to feel and act like a normal pup. Suzi is just starting to go to adoption events and is a little shy when approached. Her foster Mom will be happy to share her progress with you and show you videos of how she interacts in the home. Potential adopters must have experience with raising and training shy, unsocialized dogs, and expect a transition period to last a few months, at a minimum. Note that Suzi is still skittish with new situations and noises so a quieter home with a regular routine would be the best environment. Because Suzi is about a year old, she is likely done growing but may gain a few pounds as she gets used to life here in DC. She is past the puppy stages but once she's out of her shell will still require PLENTY of exercise. She'd love to learn what it's like to play with new toys, explore the neighborhood, and maybe even meet new friends at puppy school! She needs a home filled with patience and an abundance of love and trust. Suzi is currently living in a wonderful foster home with another dog and will require a furever home with a second dog so her new canine sibling can show her around! Although Suzi is doing great with housetraining, she will likely need reminders when she gets to her furever home. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Although she was abandoned through no fault of her own, that doesn't seem to bother her and she has a very sweet, friendly, happy and lovely demeanor. Cafe is ready be your new best friend...she can't wait to get out of the shelter and start a new, better life with someone who loves her! Cafe says...Hi there, everyone! They call me Cafe, and they say that I'm just the cutest, sweetest, most loving girl EVER!! Do you have room in your heart and home for a pup like me?? I have beautiful smooth, black coat that's super-soft…great for everyone to pet me (hint hint). :-) I weigh about 36 pounds (not too big), which makes me a perfect size for an apartment, house or condo!! They say I am probably some sort of lab mix…all I know is that I'm a happy pup and I love to play, get lots of pets, and give lots of doggie kisses! Read below for more info on Cafe, and email sheilam@luckydoganimalrescue.org ASAP if you're interested in her! Cafe says: I don't know why, but somehow I ended up in a scary shelter. It was dark and cold, and really loud in there. I kept waiting for a nice person to come get me, but each time I saw someone, they walked right by and I was still by myself. :( Luckily, the shelter staff said I am one of their favorites, and they hope that someone will step up and adopt me very SOON so I can get into the safety of a loving home! Don't you think I would look really cute as your new Facebook cover photo, romping around in the sunshine and rolling in the grass or snow!? And how I'd love to snuggle up by you after a long hike. I just really want to run, play, then snuggle, nap and dream of all the adventures we'll have together. I would just LOVE trips to the dog park and hikes in the woods -- I love to discover new things! Cafe is an awesome dog and makes friends with everyone she meets! At around 2 years old, she will need lots and lots of exercise to stay happy and healthy. Cafe's new person or family will need to make sure she gets lots of socialization and playtime with other dogs and people to keep up the good social skills she has already! And like all dogs we adopt out, she'll need to go to obedience classes to build a strong bond with her people, and help her become a well behaved companion or family member. Cafe seems to like all the people she meets, and can't wait to wiggle her way into your heart and home. Like most young dogs, Cafe may need a refresher on her house training when she gets to a new home. She will also need to go to obedience school so she can continue to be a well-socialized dog!

Sweet boy looking for a second chance with YOU! SECOND CHANCE NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!!! Name: Second Chance Breed: Boxer Mix Approximate Age: 3 years SEX: Male Approximate Weight: 55 lbs Has Lived With: Other Dogs Currently Living at: A cold and scary shelter in South Carolina. Second Chance is looking for a foster home, or even better yet, a FUR-ever home! Special adoption considerations: Second Chance is Heartworm Positive but has already been treated and is happily recovering. Hi there! My name is Second Chance and let me tell you- I’ve already had quite the life. The folks at the shelter gave me my name because when they found me, I was in really rough shape. I was super skinny and pretty neglected, but thats all finally behind me. The amazing folks at Lucky Dog tell me that I get to travel all the way to the DC area in hopes that someone there will want to take me home. I'm waiting every day for my (second) chance to find someone to love, cuddle, and play with! So a bit about me: I've got a really beautiful and soft all white coat with a black nose! I've also got big pointy ears- that will do whatever you tell them to (with some proper training, that is)! Right now, I’m about 3 years old and 55 lovable pounds. My age means that I am likely done growing—but no matter how big I get I’ll always think of myself as a lap dog. The folks at the shelter say that I do really well with other dogs. They are not sure how I will interact with kids or cats yet, but the folks at Lucky Dog can try to find out for you if you need to know! I’ve been daydreaming everyday about my new family, and I've decided I would love to go to a home with some folks that will take me on hikes, runs, and trips to the dog park to play with my canine friends. I don’t think I would be able to stop wagging my tail if I had my very own human who will give me lots of belly rubs and get me cool toys to play with. If my new family would take me to obedience classes so that I could use my smarts to learn tons of new tricks that would be amazing. If you think I might be the right dog for you, then please let my adoptions coordinator know! I do hope to hear from you soon! Woofs and tail wags, Second Chance Like most shelter dogs, Second Chance may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained. Second Chance has tested positive and has been treated for for Heartworm disease. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.

Simpson needs an experienced adopter and a lot of patience!! SIMPSON NEEDS A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME ASAP!! Name: Simpson Breed: Shepherd mix Approximate Age: 5.5 years SEX: female Approximate Weight: 36 lbs Has Lived With: dogs Currently Living at: Thailand -- Simpson needs a foster or forever home ASAP!! Special adoption considerations: Simpson was born and grew up on a dog meat farm in Northern Thailand. She needs a home with a resident dog(s), an experienced adopter, and a lot of patience! Simpson was rescued from a dog meat farm in northern Thailand. Thousands and thousands of dogs have been stolen from the streets of Thailand over the past 30 years. Street dogs and pets are lured and stuffed into wire cages where they can barely breathe. Terrified, they travel for days and days with no food or water. At their final destination they are unloaded from their cages, tortured and boiled alive and their skins ripped from their bodies in the twisted belief that this will make their meat taste better. More about Simpson: Simpson is around 5.5 years old, and although she is very scared right now, she likes to be around people and other dogs. In spite of the suffering Simpson has been through, she is still happy for attention, and is hoping that someone will see fit to give her a loving home of her own. Because of her cruel beginnings, Simpson needs another dog in the home to help her understand that she's safe. So, she can only be adopted to a home where there is a already a resident dog or dogs. At around 5.5 years old, Simpson will need lots of exercise to stay happy and healthy. And like all dogs we adopt out, she'll need to go to obedience classes to build a strong bond with her people, and help her become a well behaved companion or family member. Like most young dogs, Simpson may need a refresher on her house training when she gets to a new home. She will also need to go to obedience school so she can continue to be a well-socialized dog!

If you are viewing Purvis' bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information! Name: Purvis Best Guess for Breed: Lab Mix Best Guess for Age: 3 years as of 4/17/17 Approximate Weight: 60 lbs Currently Living at: In DC Area Foster Home Has Lived with: Dogs Special Adoption Considerations: Needs to live with a second dog, High Energy, Has some stranger danger issues especially around men- will need an adopter who is willing to work with him on this. Purvis can only be adopted to an experienced dog owner. Purvis is a sweet 60 pound, crate trained, goofy Lab Mix who is 3 years old. He is very playful, active and has a curious personality and will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. Playing with other dogs is his favorite thing to do. Whether it's out in public, a dog park or a doggy daycare he loves all dogs. Sometimes he needs a slow introduction to puppies because he is practically still a puppy himself but doesn't understand that his size and demeanor can be scary to the little ones! Most of the time after an introduction, he plays great with them (puppies). He enjoys walks, jogs, hikes, swimming, chasing soccer balls and playing in the snow! After a nice walk or playing, Purvis loves to lay on the floor or walks into his crate and chew on a bone while you relax. Sometimes he has a mind of his own when he sees a squirrel or another furry friend. Purvis knows most of the basic commands and some tricks too: - Sit - Stay - Come - Leave It - Let Go - Down - Heel - Break(Free) - Off - Away - Get Busy(Bathroom) - Crate(Bed) - Shake - Roll Over Purvis will need a committed owner to provide more training and exercise because he is a very smart and energetic dog. He will need a patient and experienced dog owner to remind him who the leader is in the family. He is intelligent, so he will learn to follow your rules quickly but he needs someone with a firm grasp of pack leadership in order to respond positively to training. Unfortunately, Purvis was not properly socialized as a puppy and is a bit shy and scared in new settings and around new people. He loves everyone but is a big scaredy cat in certain situations and would do really well living in a home that already has another dog to help Purvis learn the ropes of how to be a confident pup. The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations.
