Posted Breed: Shepherd / Terrier. Living in the country we are used to lowlifes dumping their unwanted stuff off a county road for someone else to clean up - trash, appliances, old cars, and animals. Such is the state of our country now where its just someone elses issue to handle. A friend called me last night around dusk to tell me someone had thrown out a litter of puppies on her road and could I help. While we are just starting out, low on cash and literally overflowing with discarded animals (22 onsite) - My God would not let me let these dogs die alone and in the dark. We rounded them up and found eight (8) puppies hungry, scared, and thirsty in the woods. Looks like 7 are from one litter and one is the older sister from a previous litter. They are now fed and watered and safe but I have to ask for your help. These puppies did nothing to deserve the fate that some cretin deemed more convenient to them - all they ever asked is for someone to love them and take care of them. They need a family who cares. I am not one to constantly ask for help but this time I really need it. Please help me get these puppies into a home. Adoption fees be waived for this bunch. If you can not adopt - we always appreciate monetary donation or food donations, etc. We are a small rescue operation just starting out with no corporate sponsors, no tax-exempt status yet, and very limited funds. We have funded this 99% internally and 8 more mouths to feed is a bit overwhelming but my God will provide - He always does and I am praying that He will touch your heart to help. "A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel." Proverbs 12:10. You can check us out at - Thank you and God Bless...

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, 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.
