Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Well howdy partner, I'm Dallas! I'm makin' camp here at the SBACC while they search out my forever home for me. I was found wandering the streets with my buddy Cash, and the nice gentleman brought us here to this fine establishment. I must say that I was quite scared when I came in, but I am starting to warm up to these gentle folks. I especially like to go for my walks, it's such an adventure and there are some darn tootin' mighty fine smells out there! I have my tail up the entire walk. I also am enjoying all of the love and attention that the volunteers are giving me more and more each day. I am a sweet little guy, and I would love to have a quiet and calm home and family to call my own. Additional Information: Current on shots.

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: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Who wants to meet the happiest girl in the whole wide world? Well, here she is, Miss Penelope …or “Miss P” “Penny” “Penny-lope”, which are just some of the nicknames she has racked up here. To no fault of her own, Penelope was recently returned to SBACC after approx. a year in a home. Her previous owner had some recent life changes and could no longer provide the life this little hippo deserved. Penelope is a 4 year American Pitbull Terrier and to say Miss P loves people of all sizes, is a HUGE understatement. This precious girl has never met anyone she doesn’t love and she proves it by giving the best kisses…over and over and over again! Another fun trait about this girl is her love for water. Watching her play in the kiddie pools and with the hose is one of the funniest things you will ever see. Penny is a volunteer favorite. She is constantly getting tons of love and cuddles with all the volunteers. She is quite the spooner! P also loves car rides and hits downtown a couple times a week with her favorite volunteers where everyone swoons over her cuteness. Would you consider opening your heart and home for our sweet P?

      rescue
      Breed: Australian Shepherd
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd (long coat). This is our sweet girl Frankie. She is a 2-year-old Miniature Australian Shepherd. She came to us after her owners could no longer keep her through no fault of her own. Frankie is adorable, so cute, has beautiful eyes and is very playful and cuddly. A lot of people have shown interest in her, however she needs a home where her needs will be managed prop erly. Unfortunately, when she came to us she was (and still is) VERY overweight. Frankie was diagnosed with Pancreatitis and IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease). Frankie must remain on a specific diet only. If this diet is deviated in any way, she could become VERY sick. We do offer medical adoption where we will pay for any medical treatment related to her IBD or Pancreatitis. However it is also very helpful if any future potential family could help out as well. Frankie is also deaf, but that doesn’t stop her from having fun! Because she is deaf, we would like Frankie in an adult only home. We wouldn’t want any children accidentally startling her. Frankie would also do best as the only dog in the home because she loves alllll the attention she can get, however a mellow dog would be ok. Are you interested in meeting Frankie? She is currently at board and train and is NOT at our center. If you’d like to meet her you must do our online application first. If you have any questions, please give us a call!

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Pumpkin is a very special girl. We believe she may have some mental handicaps that inhibit her learning. She needs someone patient who is willing to give her a chance. When she came into training her entire body would flinch at the slightest touch. She has gone through desensitization training and she will know approach new people, take treats and accept petting. Pumpkin has even learned to be picked up! Pumpkin loves treats and its a quick way to her heart. Pumpkin loves other dogs big or small. Pumpkin is currently at board and train with our wonderful training learning to become more socialized and comfortable with people. If interested in adopting Pumpkin, please fill out our online application. Once reviewed, we will connect you with our trainer to schedule a meet and greet.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Blackie is a little clown. Once you have spent 5 minutes with him gaining his trust over some treats he will crawl into your lap and loves to cuddle. He is very playful with toys and does great with other dogs. Have space on your couch for one or two more? Blackie’s best friend Pumpkin is also available for adoption but if you already have a dog looking for a new friend they can be separated.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). The name's Cash. Not Johnny, just plain Cash. I arrived here after being picked up off of the streets with my buddy Dallas. I am a little timid, but am doing better everyday. I'm glad that I have my friend here with me to help me feel better. I am enjoying the walks and love that we are receiving. I get along well with other dogs, and I like people too, although I am shy, so please be patient with me. I am looking for a quiet home that will help me come out of my shell. I have a lot of love to give! Additional Information: Current on shots.
