Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). America's Little Sweetheart! Fionna is a Shepherd mix girl with LOADS of personality. She is outgoing, enjoys people, and really wants to spend a lot of time with her humans -- be it playing, going for car rides, or just kickin' back and relaxin'. She really enjoys the great outdoors so a family who enjoys having their dog accompany them on walks, hikes, car rides and community outings would be a great fit for Fionna. Fionna is great with other dogs and enjoys spending time romping, wrestling, and playing a speedy game of chase around the yard with her foster siblings. Fionna would make a great companion for another playful dog and in fact, she loves other dogs so much that we are looking for a home for her with a canine buddy. A fenced yard is also preferred as Fionna loves to spend a lot of time outside playing with her canine companions but a family who does a lot with their dogs but does not have a fence will be considered as well. This little gal is a great size at only 40 lbs. and she is moderately active so doesn't have huge exercise needs. She is also house-trained and crate-trained and has some obedience training. She is also very intelligent and treat motivated so there is SO much more she can learn!. She does not have much experience with cats so we would need to assessfor that if a family has cats and because she has not had a lot of experience with young children, she is in need of a home either without them or with children at least 8 years of age. This is a very loving and loyal gal... Now all America's Little Sweetheart needs is a family to call her own! Placement Requirements: Fenced yard (preferred) Canine companion for company No children under 8 years of age How To Adopt Me: Step 1: First, p lease be sure you have read this pet's entire description in order to decide whether this particular pet is a good candidate for your family. We try to include as many details as possible about each pet, including the type of placement needs and requirements they have for adoption. Step 2: Be sure to read our adoption policies and procedures before contacting us. Step 3: E-mail us to request an adoption application and/or inquire about this pet.

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.
