Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Catahoula Leopard Dog. 2 yr., neutered, Cattle Dog /Catahoula Say 'hi' to Ted... quietly, he's nervous! Ted came here with his sister/mother, who knows, Tessa from the small Orange Cove Shelter. Sometimes you wish you knew a dog's story. How could they be SO messed up?! Ted is one of those dogs. He's fearful and under socialized. Been working with him, and experience has proven that they are all reachable. The kind of progress I'm grateful for, he sniffs other dogs, comes in to sleep on a dog bed of his own volition, housebroken, not terrified of me anymore, eats grass on walks... walks on a leash. I can touch him... I'm tellin' ya, it's the little things that are enormous with some of these guys! Ted needs a special adopter, one who might understand what Ted is going through. He could just be left alone to exist, but I would love to see him with someone that would touch him every day, take him on walks, expose him to things. This is when I've seen the most improvements. Exposure to everything! Immersion. Was a huge deal to even force him to sleep in a dog bed next to me! Once he did for a few days, he expected it! Routine is key! Dogs are incredible, you can reach them through routine. Still working and he has all the time he needs...

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.

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Gretchen, 5 yr., spayed, Border Collie mix Gretchen: She is 5 years old and the mother of Sister and Brownie, who were adopted. Lets pay attention to Gretchen! Gretchen has been here a couple months. And now, one of the chosen house dogs. Totally trustworthy inside. She holds it, or uses the dog door, and respects boundaries, like the threshold of an open door. She is very well mannered. She knows better. Turn key dog. She's great on or off a leash. She simply becomes your dog. Gretchen is fantastic with other dogs, in a pack or one on one. She's the sweetest most affectionate girl ever! She loves to give kisses and wants pets, and wants to be everywhere you are. She's not shy, very well balanced, happy girl. At 5 years old, Gretchen still has all the energy her 18 mo. pups have. She needs someone active! So don't let the premature grey grizzling on her muzzle fool ya! She's a typical young border collie! Normally a dog like Gretchen wouldn't be here more than a day. But there have been quite a few her age, with less energy, that some older folks were more comfortable with. Gretchen would do great on a property with no fences. She only wants to be with her family, pack and person.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Boxer (short coat). Duke, 7 mo., neutered, Cattle Dog/Boxer Only about 7 months old. What a dude! Duke was discovered pretty much on someone's doorstep, complete with harness. He was not microchipped, and no one came looking for him. His Good Sam's went through proper channels in Madera county and then got him here to find him the best home. He's a complete sweety and beautiful (he has guyliner). Obviously Australian Cattle dog and boxer. Duke is adorable. He loves everyone. Great with the pack and he's having a blast. Play, play, play! And, we haven't even gotten him to the creek yet. His foster's say he loves the water, so these upcoming photos should be great. Duke has been altered, brought up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. And available for adoption.

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Cullen, 10 mo., neutered, Australian Cattle Dog Cullen flew in from Riverside A.S., care of Pilots N Paws pilot Aaron. Thanks Aaron!! Thanks Pilots n Paws!! Not sure about his back story, but the shelter liked him so much, they kept him alive for 37 days! That is a feat at Riverside. Very congested. He's been on his first pack hike and this boy is classic, the heeler that won't leave your side! No leash required. It's mostly male dogs here right now and Cullen has gotten on beautifully with all of them. He hops in the van and is really good. No issues in the yard. Hes pretty happy to be out of the shelter and in a home, with other dogs and lots of exercise, food and water. He is a swimmer btw! So great to watch in the creek or on the trail. Just a curious, sweet and pretty outgoing little red heeler. His coat is a tad fluffy, so he might have something else in there. Beautiful 10 month old boy!
