Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $175.00. We don't know much about her past but we do know that her future is bright! Velma is a 4 year old shepherd mix who weighs about 40 pounds. She's semi-feral which means before she came to our shelter she wasn't socialized with people and had to fend for herself. Velma is slowly learning that people are good and they have love to give. She is a big fan of other dogs and will do best in a house with one. She makes dog friends quickly but needs time and patience when it comes to people and a confident dog in the house will help her along. She is kennel trained and walks on a leash well. Interested? Please visit http://bit.ly/1m78fU5 to complete our quick online adoption application from your computer or desktop (not a phone). A representative will email you within 24-hours. Please do not come in until you are pre-approved so we may schedule an appointment with you. Velma's adoption fee is $175 & includes: Spay, vaccines, microchip, deworming, a heartworm test, a wellness exam, a fecal test, & an offer of pet healthcare insurance for 30-days from adoption date. Thank you!

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.

      rescue
      Breed: Briard-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Briard / Schnauzer / Mixed (long coat). Adoption Fee: $175.00. Moxie Midnight is a quirky genius. She is feral but has come so far! She came in with a litter of pups that have all been adopted. She is large in size, weighing about 60 pounds. We have no idea on her breed but she will need grooming. We have groomed her & she does well. Moxie is guessed to be a Briard/Standard Schnauzer with possibly some Chow Chow. She is very dog-oriented (but independent, offering occasional play) & loves to be indoors in a cozy, safe place. She knows to potty outdoors. Moxie deserves only the best home that will understand they will need to gently assist her while equally realizing she will most likely always be a loaner. We can promise you this, she is gorgeous & helping her with training, you will have "break through" moments with her that will be priceless. Moxie has survived being abandoned, heartworms (already treated), beginning stage liver failure (also treated & normal range now). She survived birthing beautiful babies & rearing them while ill. She needs someone with a heart of gold & the knowledge to help her along. Are you that someone? Moxie will require being leashed for a very long time as she is a flight risk. Interested? Please visit http://bit.ly/1m78fU5 to complete our quick online adoption application from your computer or desktop (not a phone). Moxie's adoption fee is $175 & includes: Spay, vaccines, microchip, deworming, a heartworm test, a wellness exam, a fecal test, a session with a trainer, & an offer of pet healthcare insurance for 30-days from adoption date.
