Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Joyce (joyce@animalcompassionteam.com) for more information about this pet. Amber is such a beautiful little girl. She wants so badly to be loved unconditionally. When we first met Amber in the shelter she plastered herself against the wall of the crowded kennel and was so scared. We watched her for over a month gain confidence and become almost comfortable with her surroundings. We finally had an open spot for her and are watching her blossom in her foster home. She is a delightful little girl that deserves a wonderful home to call her own. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

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.

She just ABSOLUTELY ADORES all people-she loooves to be held, gives kisses and loves to cuddle. She just lights up whenever she sees someone:) She would be a perfect companion or best friend:) She likes other dogs, but is best with doggie friends her size or bigger. She loves to go for walks and wags her tail non-stop:) She has a common condition in her back legs called luxating patellas, which sometimes cause her some discomfort and stiffness. It doesn't affect her quality of life, and sure doesn't seem to phase her!

But once I trust you i'm the most trusting guy. my foster mommy can do everything with me and i would never bite her. I am crate trained because i pick on another timmed foster dog in my home. so I stay in my crate while my mommy is away. I love standing up on the bed and mommy tickles my belly and i flop on to my back then happily pop back up for more. My ideal home would be with someone who does not get visitors or lots of really doggie friendly ones. I've come really far in a short time but i still require human socialization.

I am not a young whipper snapper, so my foster mommie says that I would do best in a home that is quiet and not too active...and I just don't seem to have the patience for the little ones, so probably best if the kids are out of the house:) You can call my foster mommie Brenda at 559-299-6364 or email brenda@animalcompassionteam.com for more info on me!!! {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

If presented with his dog bed, he will lay down right on it, He sleeps on a dog bed by the bedside and will not disturb you, unless he needs to go outside to potty, then he will come straight back into the house and go back to sleep on his dog bed. He is good on a leash and will walk right beside you. He has been living around cats, so he is also very good around them too. He also becoming more used to taking baths and tolerating a blow dryer for drying his fur.
