Description

Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat).

NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!! Katie’s owner recently went into a nursing home and was no longer able to care for her. Her sister, who is also not fully well, brought Katie to our vet to be euthanized….and she’s a young, healthy pup! Thankfully, Britany, one of our caring volunteers who works there was able to intervene and get Katie into our care. This adorable little pup has some diet-related skin issues that are still healing and was infested with fleas, but she’s now on better kibble, the fleas are gone, and she just had a recent grooming. She’s looking quite sassy with her adorable ears and is feeling much better. When Katie first arrived at her foster home she was very scared and withdrawn…even a little nippy and grumbly the first few days. After a few days, she started to trust and as she realized she was safe, a more confident, affectionate Katie emerged…a pup who knows what she wants. Katie is being fostered by an awesome foster mom who also owns a doggy daycare business, so all her foster dogs get plenty of socialization with other dogs. She’s also met the resident cat and had zero reaction or interest in her, and she does fine around other dogs but she’s not a big fan of playtime. She’s more focused on finding her people to curl up in their lap and fancies herself a lap dog. She has been great with the teen boy in the home and likes to be held by people….so she’s not a nippy dog by nature. She’s still a little shy at first, but also very snuggly once she warms up. Katie is doing well with crate training and her foster mom is working on potty training, and she’s quickly showing improvement. She is adjusting to kibble and is a slow eater, so her foster mom feeds her separately so she can relax and go at her own pace. Katie only at people food in her prior home, so her foster mom has been adding check broth to her kibble to entice her. This affectionate, laid back pup will make a great companion for someone. She’d be fine living with other dogs, or as an only dog, but her focus is more on her people. Katie will be coming to N. VA on 3/9. Apply today to welcome her home. BREED: Terrier mix GENDER: Female AGE: ~ 3.5 to 4 years WEIGHT: 11 lbs VETTING: microchipped, u-t-d on vaccinations,spayed ADOPTION FEE: $350 LOCATION: Rockville, MD FOR MORE INFO OR TO ADOPT: Please go to adopt.worthydog and complete the application. You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to foster.worthydog and fill out an application. Worthy Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue that primarily adopts to families in the DC Metro area.

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, 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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
