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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mountain Dog / Dutch Shepherd / Mixed. Felisa, spayed female, 11 months old, 48 Lbs. Felisa was born on the streets of Taiwan, and got a rough start in life. Her mama-dog, "Donna," found a local park where many people walked their dogs, and decided it was a safe place to have her puppies. A kind person built them a shelter to protect them from the cold. Donna was so amiable and delightful that everybody adored her and supplied her with food to make sure that her babies were well fed. In return, Donna showed her friendliness and generosity by letting everybody cuddle her new born babies. That friendliness made it all too easy for the dog catchers to take the puppies away! The neighborhood rescued the puppies, and found a foster home for them to stay with their mama. Felisa is a beautiful, eye-catching brindle Formosan Mountain Dog mix, probably with Dutch Shepherd or Belgian Malinois. She is a happy, active, cuddly, playful, goofy, big puppy. Her birthday is approximately 1/15/16. Probably pretty close to her full adult size, she is 24 inches at the shoulder and 50 lbs of pure muscle. She would make a great hiking or jogging companion, and might eventually do very well at an activity like agility, or following a mountain bike or horse. Felisa is on the submissive side, and she gets along splendidly with all other dogs. She will be able to convince even the most shy dog that it’s time to play! Very much a pack-oriented dog, she takes her cues and gets her confidence from the other dog(s) in her pack, and she needs to be adopted into a home with an already established dog / dogs. Cats are fascinating creatures which need enthusiastic investigation, but she is very respectful of their ultimate authority. Also, cows are funny big dogs that need to be wiggled and bounced at! Felisa will immediately bond to her primary pack-person, and she will become a snuggly, licky, loving lap-dog. The other people-members of her pack will take a little bit longer, depending on their level of interaction with her, but the bonding will shortly follow. She will always be shy around strangers, and her new family will need to commit to good socialization and understand that she might need some extra time to check out the situation when she’s introduced to new environments with lots of people. She would do great in a house with adults or older kids, with frequent calm visitors to offer good socialization. Felisa is smart and adaptable. She learns well by being talked to, watching, and thinking, rather than by rote repetition. She will learn the rules of the house by watching the other dogs. She is respectful of boundaries and limits, and is doggie-door trained. She knows basic commands and is enthusiastic about learning. Felisa is in the San Fransisco Bay Area at her foster home now, waiting for her forever home. Contact AHAN now to get more information on Felisa, and find out if she is the right match for your household! submissive Energy level medium Does the dog get along with other dogs at home?

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mountain Dog / Mixed (short coat). Beautiful, blind puppy looking for forever home! Surry, neutered male, 6 months old, 32Lbs. Surry was either abandoned very young or accidentally left motherless in the wild; with him there were three other siblings. He was the only male. All puppies, about 2.5 months old, were in extremely poor health condition, especially blind Surry, who had badly suffered from malnutrition that he got very thin hair. Months passed, Surry grew up strong and healthy, his body is covered with lovely wavy velvet brown hair, but he was defensive and friendless. Having difficulty to differentiate malice or goodwill while other puppies charging on him, Surry started to bluff and bluster by barking aloud to show his suspicions. The blind puppy shows great affection to his human but not to other puppies. He was always standing aside, "hearing” others play. Everything has changed, however, since the day the "Beauty" and the "Beast" met each other. At first, they avoided each other: Surry by growling and chasing, and Scarlett by sheltering herself in a crate. For many days, I had been trying to crate training Scarlett but in vain, nonetheless, Surry helped to accomplish it within ten minutes. When Scarlett came out of her crate and offered her favorite toy, a teddy bear, to Surry and invited him to play with her, I was totally overwhelmed by their new friendship. Since that day, they have become best friends. The beautiful girl leads her blind friend to explore everywhere in the house; while Surry , the grumpy boy follows his new friend searching high and low by smelling and tracing her position for guidance. So fortunate they have each other for companies! Inspired, I then pair them as "Beauty and the Beast", hoping their friendship can last as long as possible!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dutch Shepherd / Mountain Dog / Mixed. Meet Sweet Angie Angie, spayed female, 3 years, 42 Lbs. Hi, my name is Angie. Thank you for reading my story. Well, at first, I wasn’t on the list to be rescued out of the street. Some rescuers found my baby whining in a bush when I was out looking for food to nurse him. That was a long day for me…. because after I came back to my baby, he was gone. I went crazy and tried so hard to look for him days after days. He was too young and still in nursing. I worried so much that some other strays might hurt him ‘cause they always came checking on us from time to time trying to bully us. If I wasn’t too hungry that day, I wouldn’t have had left him in the bush. I was in great sorrow! Few days later, the rescuers showed up again. They immediately found me and took me away. Though I didn’t know where I would be taken to, there was no reason for me to stay there after my baby was gone anyway. Without any hesitation, I decided to follow them. Very soon, I was taken to an animal hospital. A nice nurse bathed me well. A vet gave me all necessary physical checkups and took me to a kennel. With great surprise, I spotted my baby in the kennel whining for milk. I was thrilled and so grateful these people came back for me. Few weeks later after my baby needing no more nursing, we were transferred to different foster homes. Though we couldn’t be together, I didn’t worry much this time because I knew he would be in great care as I would. To help me being more socialized, I stay with auntie Jessamy for basic obedience training and fostering. At first I was not quite comfortable being with other foster dogs. My bad memory kept reminding me those rough days on street to be bullied by other strays. So I cautiously kept a distance from other dogs. My foster mommy is truly very kind. She encouraged me to make friends with other foster dogs and in fact, they were all very friendly to welcome me joining in. Every day I get to walk out meeting many people and dogs. I finally feel so much relieved and become more and more confident every day. I truly like to be with people. Since the day I was rescued, every human being I met was so nice to me. With dogs. I have totally got over my fear of meeting them. I maybe a little shy to meet a new dog or some strangers coming toward me initially, but very soon, I am able to make friends for nice pets. If I don’t feel quite interested joining a play. I’ll simply walk away or stay quietly without bothering anyone. I really enjoy staying out in a patio or a big park, the breeze and green smell always make me very relaxed and happy. I am a well behaved, mellow and affectionate doggie with a clean bill of health. Now it’s time for me to find my own home. If you’d like to have a calm, sweet, cuddly and quiet doggie at home that also enjoys outdoor activities, you might want to consider me as the best friend. My name is Angie. I am a well behaved good doggie. Please visit www.ahan.org to view more “Angie’s” videos, click “APPLY” to fill out online application. Thank you again for reading my story!

When I stay home or play out, everybody likes to make friends with me. They’re all saying I’m an extremely friendly doggie, get along well with any size of dogs, children and even strangers. Well, yes, this is who I am. For me, the world is full of excitement and adventure. But somehow, no one wants to offer me a shelter to call Home in Taiwan. I was born as a stray, my native mommy left me at a junk yard when I was 2 months old. When I was hungry, I went to the leftover area to feed myself with stinky food. If I was bored, there were plenty trash and recycles to play. I once got a chance to be adopted. But due to some elderly suspicion, no one wanted to adopt a black dog with white socks at home regardless how friendly and cute I was. Since then, the junk yard was my home. When I grew bigger and bigger, those people once thought I was cute just stopped to come to see me. Sometimes when they past by me, they just pretended they didn’t know me and totally ignore my presence like they had never known me. I was pretty upset and wondering why. Until one day I was really sick and got tired of being alone, a stranger came toward me. She petted me nicely and handed some fresh food to feed me. By looking at her sad eyes, I was thinking this must be my last meal, I probably would be gone soon….. I slowly gabbled the food with sadness and ready to walk away. The stranger suddenly put a collar on me and asked me to go with her. I was so surprised and freezed for few seconds. But her intension was clear. If I didn’t go with her, for sure, I’d die here and buried under the trash that no one would recognize my existence. I was soon taken to an animal hospital for checkups. The Vet gave me so shots and medicine to cure my illness. He said, as long as I stopped eating rotten food and drinking stinky water, I’d be fine. Start that day; I stayed with my rescuer, so is my foster mom until now. I never need to worry about being hungry nor be alone. Instead, I become a confident and socialized dog that bring lots of joy to everyone. Furthermore, I am housetrained, well behaved to earn lots of snuggles from friendly people. Life has changed from the moment my rescuer took me out of the junk yard. I’m very grateful and hoping there is a family out there that doesn’t mind I am a black doggie wearing white socks.

She hardly got food or had a shelter to stay and probably would be easily got accidental pregnancy by some male dogs. A nice lady frequently met Alice wandering around in loneliness, saw her got driven away by unfriendly people. She wished to do something to help her. So she planned to give her a TNR (Trap, Neuter and Release). In this case, she could ensure Alice’s safety from other male dogs, she thought. But at the moment when the lady went approaching to Alice, she changed her mind. Alice was so friendly, wagging her tail to welcome her visit. She suddenly realized a sweet doggie like Alice shouldn’t be left alone on the street. So she took Alice home after all necessary medical care and promise to find Alice a sweet home. Under foster care, Alice became more socialized and well behaved. She is doing very well with foster dogs and easily to make friends with new dogs, too. Stray life didn’t leave any negative trace in Alice. She always shows a sweet smile to meet strangers and welcome nice pets. Alice was born with enthusiastic nature. There is no mean bone in her. She is housebroken, with a clean bill of health. By giving her some obedience training, she will be a coddler to accompany you for more adventures outdoors and joyful moments at home.

      Posted Breed: Mountain Dog / Hound / Mixed. Meet Sweet and Tender Lily Lily, spayed female, 2.5 years old, 25 Lbs. Hello, I am Lily’s rescuer and foster mom. Thank you for reading Lily’s story. Lily was born on March, 3rd, 2015 with her 7 other siblings. Ever since they were born, they were restricted in a small cage, day in and day out. After they grew bigger, most of her siblings were either adopted or transferred to other places except Lily and her sister, Rosie, were both tied on a short leash at the same spot, without any space to walk, eat and did potty. Everyday when I drove by, I saw Lily and Rosie always tied at the same place, living in a miserable life to make me feeling so sorrow. They had no freedom, no smile and no proper meals. What broke my heart was they were almost a year old but locked in a 5 months skinny puppy body. One day, I just couldn’t hold my sorrow and anger anymore. I got of my car, walked directly to the owner asking him to surrender both puppies to me. Without any hesitation, the owner off-leash both pups and walked away. Right away, I took these pups to an animal hospital for thorough physical checkups. According to the Vet, other than they were spayed, neither any necessary medical care nor vaccine was given. And Lily was detected to have heartworm positive. Without a second thought, I asked the Vet to do whatever he could to cure this poor puppy. Under few months proper medical care and nutrition, Lily was fully recovered. And the happiest thing was she started to gain weight as she should be. Due to Lily didn’t have any chance to interact with human and other dogs in the past, she was timid. When I tried to walk her out, she was once so scared and did not even know how to walk properly. Day after day, I took Lily out as often as I could to encourage her meeting friendly people and other creatures. We spend quite some time sitting in a park, watching people and dogs passing by. When some strangers came to greet her, she gradually learned to overcome her fear and started to accept strangers’ nice pets. As time went by, she’s got so much improvement to make me very proud of her. And now she is a happy dog who might be a little shy for awhile but warms up in her way. Lily stays pretty content at home and in a familiar place. She likes to play and have fun with her sister, Rosie. If she stays long enough to encounter a group of dogs, she kind of enjoys being part of them. She is such a tender and quiet little girl that likes to cuddle with people she trusts. When I am working, she is calm and staying quietly next to me. When we play out, she always stays side by side with a joyful smile to let me know how happy she is. She is such a sweet and well behaved little doggie that makes you want to love her more. A gentle little fur baby like Lily deserves an understanding and loving home. If you like to have quiet and loyal companion to follow you around, Lily will be the one you definitely will not want to miss.

      Posted Breed: Mountain Dog / Hound / Mixed. Meet Adorable and Gentle Rosie Rosie, spayed female, 2.5 years old, 27 Lbs. Hello, I am Rosie and Lily’s rescuer and foster mom. Thank you for reading Rosie’s story. Rosie was born on March, 3rd, 2015 with her 7 other siblings. Ever since they were born, they were restricted in a small cage, day in and day out.

Right away, I took these pups to an animal hospital for thorough physical checkups. According to the Vet, other than they were spayed, neither any necessary medical care nor vaccine was given. And Rosie was detected to have slightly Patella Luxation syndrome. Though Vet didn’t think it was a big issue, I still insisted to give her the best treatment. Under weight control and limited her long walking and jumping activities, the syndrome gets less and less. Therefore, I am very careful of her daily activities in preventing her to steal food from Lily’s bowl. Good news is Rosie is not a very high energetic doggie anyway. She likes to stay in a quiet environment, living in simple life. Due to Rosie didn’t have any chance to interact with human and other dogs in the past, she was a little timid but chilled. When we walk out, she normally will stay very close to me. If there are dogs or strangers come near her, she will observe first and choose to make friends or simply ignore them and keep walking. But if strangers initiatively come to pet her nicely, she will accept. If she gets to meet the strangers often, she will take them as friends and being cuddly. Rosie is sensitive of roller skating rumble rolling sound or facing some children speedy running toward her. That does scare her to dodge and hide. However, she gets quite much improvement day after day. Rosie likes to watch other dogs play than to join the gang. She enjoys companionship with dogs she knows well such as Lily. But if a friendly dog comes directly toward her, she will sniff him/ her a little to start a polite friendship. If she meets the dog often, she will intimately walks toward the dog for greeting. Like Lily, Rosie stays calm and quietly at home. You never need to worry if she will go far away when you are out in a park because she will always stays close to you like a sidekick. Both Rosie and Lily are doing quite okay to be left alone. They will not get into any separation anxiety barking if they both must be left alone at home. A gentle little fur baby like Rosie is now ready to find a home to call her own. If you are a low key family that prefers to have a calm and affectionate doggie to cuddle at home. You shall find Rosie a good fit. Please visit www.ahan.org to view “Rosie’s” videos, click “APPLY” to fill out online application for this little adorable calm fur baby to love you more.
