Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact for more information about this pet. Name: Reyna Age: 1 year (DOB: 12/26/14) Sex: Female (spayed) Breed: Terrier mix Location: San Diego, CA area Vet/Medical Info: Reyna is confirmed spayed and up to date on vaccines. She received a one-year rabies vaccine on 8/25/15, and received the Bordetella vaccine the same day. Reyna weighs about 18 pounds. Owner Info: Reyna is a beautiful girl whose owner rescued a small stray dog a few months ago. The dog was pregnant, and several weeks after she was rescued, gave birth to six puppies. Sadly, two of the puppies did not make it. Reyna's owner has found a home for three of the puppies, and is now looking for a home or rescue for Reyna, the fourth puppy. Reyna is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house, she is not housebroken, but is leash trained. She is a smart little girl and knows many commands, including Wait, Up, Down, Watch Out, Tree, Go To Sleep, Let's Go, and Stay With Me! Reyna's owner wrote that her eyes never fully opened. "Eyes never opened fully, she tries to squint with her left eye, but cant see. She remembers the foot print of the house." Reyna is described as outgoing, and is good with men and women, male and female dogs, and cats. She currently lives with three other dogs, including her mother. Reyna is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, and has never bitten or snapped. Her owner tells us Reyna can get stressed with loud noises or things she's not familiar with, but she loves stuffed and squeaky toys! *Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs that are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them. These dogs are with their owners, and are not in BDRA foster homes. We do our best to screen these dogs, but make no guarantees regarding their temperament.

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.
