Description

Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (medium coat).

Quin was surrendered to the shelter because his owner was deploying. According to his previous owner Quin is house trained, kennel trained, rides well in the car, and loves to play. Quin has not been socoialized very well and he is very fearful of new people and new situations. To tell you all about his anxiety, Quin will bark loudly and may appear intimidating, but he will warm up given time. Sometimes Quin needs to bark just to let off steam! Since he is worried about a wide variety of things at this stage in his life, please be mindful of neighbors (and your own noise limits) before adopting a loud and excitable dog like Quin. Quins new owner will have to be skilled in the art of patience and positivity! If Quin has a panic attack, the best way to help him through it is to stay calm and set a good example. If he is worried about a new person or situation, for instance, giving him plenty of breaks (short walks, moving away from the ''scary'' thing and returning after a pause) and rewarding him when he makes good choices or works through his nervousness can teach him how to handle difficult scenarios. Dog obedience classes would definitely benefit Quin to help him work through his fears and help him see that the world doesn''t have to be so scary; not only will he be around new dogs and people, in a new place, but the instructors can give you cool tips to help him move past being frightened. Because we want to set Quin up for success, he cannot go to a home with children under 12 years, as he may become easily overwhelmed. Quin loves to play with other dogs, although he can be a bit rude and rambunctious for some dogs (mutual visits with other dogs in the home are always encouraged), and caution should be used if introducing Quin to cats or small animals, as he may not know about them and may chase or injure them. Quin is looking for a home that is excited to show him the world, and make him a partner for adventures!

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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
