Posted Breed: Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Liberty! Isn't she a major cutie? She is a mix of various breeds, and sometimes those make the cutest pups! Liberty is a young gal who is about 1 to 2 years old and weighs 20 pounds. Liberty is sweet and gentle. Everyone who meets her falls in love because she is such a cuddle bug! Even though she is a puppy, she is not high energy and does not require a ton of exercise to wear her out. However, she does like to run around and play each day, especially with her toys. She loves to play with other dogs, and we are hoping to find her a home where she will have another young dog to play with. She also would do best in a home without younger children. She also likes to nibble on some things, which is normal for a puppy like her. Overall, Liberty loves to be the center of loving attention! We are teaching Liberty to walk on a leash and get acclimated to new sights and sounds. She gets nervous in new surroundings and around new dogs, but once she learns that everything will be OK, she eases right in and joins in on the fun! She will be a wonderful "cuddle bug" for a loving family! Contact CRI if you're interested in learning more about Liberty. If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath. Thank you for your consideration in adopting a collie in need!!!

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.

      Scout

      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie / Collie (long coat). Check out Scout! He is a sweet, big boy who just came into Collie Rescue, Inc. and is looking for a new place to call home. Scout is about 6 years old. This guy is such a trooper, that his foster mom has nicknamed him “Boy Scout.” Scout is an all-around catch! He walks nicely on a leash and is friendly to everyone he meets. He especially gets excited when meeting other dogs. When walking by a neighborhood dog that’s barking inside its yard, Scout sometimes fluffs up and raises his tail like a big show of bravado. All it takes is a slight tug on the leash to remind him to focus and be polite, and he will fall right back into enjoying his stroll. At his current foster home, he is living with two little dogs and cat – and they all get along pretty well. It’s been a nice transition spot for Scout to hang out until his forever home is found. Scout is a very playful collie who loves toys, tug-of-war, and fetch. When in the yard, Scout sometimes gives an excited, friendly bark at the neighbors and other dogs that are nearby. He’ll be a nice “yard supervisor” when his future owner is out mowing or gardening. Scout usually finds a nice spot in his foster mom’s yard to lay down, sniff the breeze, and watch the world go by. Inside, he doesn’t seem to bark at all. Scout is also a snuggler! He has been doing well when left alone at the house and doesn’t require a crate. He does have some problems with longer car rides and it seems to make him feel nauseous. His foster mom has been trying a variety of methods and medications to make the car rides easier on Scout, and has found that a combination of Dramamine and anti-anxiety medication one hour before the ride helps him the best. However, shorter car rides (5-10 minutes) do not seem to be a problem for him, so short trips to visit the veterinarian, parks, or trails will be no problem for his future owner! He will get into the car (with a little help) and will lay down without complaint. For all these reasons, we think Scout would do best in a home that doesn’t plan to do a lot of travel-time with their dog. Overall, Scout truly is like an honorable, friendly “boy scout!” He deserves a great home, and we hope someone will come along that will be the perfect match for him. If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath.

      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). LUKE IS PENDING ADOPTION. Luke is a really friendly 3 year old pup looking for a new family to bond with, as his last family was not able to care for him anymore. For that reason, it is really important to us that his next home is his true forever home! Luke is housebroken, knows basic obedience commands, and is crate trained -- but he can be a stubborn fella! He’ll need an owner who has patience and understands that he doesn’t enjoy being forced to do something he doesn’t want to do, such as getting into SUVs (he's fine with getting into cars) or being pulled by the collar. He also would do best in a home with children who are teenagers or older. This handsome guy is very outgoing! He’s very friendly with all people, and is especially playful with other dogs. He seems to do fine with cats. Luke LOVES his food, and will do just about anything to get another snack. For that reason, he is on a diet (he's a bit overweight!). He can be protective of his meals, so he should be fed separately if other dogs are in the house. Luke's a super upbeat guy who will make a great addition to a lucky new family!

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Bella is looking for someone with a kind heart to love her, and she has tons of cuddles ready to give! We know she will make a wonderful addition to a very lucky family! Bella is a wonderful, sweet girl looking for a new home. She is approximately 7 years old and we believe she is a beagle mix. Bella is currently staying in a foster home, and her foster moms says she is a real sweetie pie! She has been enjoying a wonderful temporary home with dog toys, a soft bed, warm meals, extra treats, and new friends (dogs and cats) to play with! Once she has a fun play session, she loves to settle down to take a nap. Bella may be somewhat timid at first, but once she sniffs you out, she will be sure to steal your heart! She's full of glee when you come home at night, making sure you know how much she loves you. And when it's time to settle in for the evening, she thinks snuggles on the couch are a little piece of heaven. She went to the vet in October and had her teeth cleaned, which means she can give sweet kisses to everyone! Bella has splayed feet and is on medication (Gabapentin) to help with some of the discomfort in her legs. We aren’t sure what caused her feet to look the way they do, but the medication has been helping her and she doesn’t mind being a unique and a special dog! Despite her legs, she loves to romp around the backyard, play in the leaves, and smell the wind blowing through the trees. She doesn't let anything hold her back. Bella is otherwise really healthy, eats great, and is full of hound enthusiasm! She will often bark to alert her people of new strangers, but she doesn't bark much inside the house. Her foster mom says Bella is really smart and knows many commands like "sit," "shake," "sit pretty," and "beg. Bella seems deferential to smaller dogs. If her future home has larger dogs, she may do better if the large dogs have mellow personalities. This sweet pup is, without a doubt, a special and loving girl who deserves a caring home. She is eager to find a new family member to cuddle up with forever and share her love. Could you be the right family for sweet Bella?
