not all rescued dogs are mutts. why call it a mutt if it isnt, obviously the dog in this thread is mixed but not necessarily all rescues are mutts.

Most rescues don't come with pedigrees either if they don't have a pedigree saying what they are they are a mutt. I don't care what they look like. I don't want any mutt who bites someone being labeled as any particular breed why should they be labeled as pure anything? When there is no telling how those dog's are bred? That's the issue with BSL mislabeling dogs why should my dog's be labeled with any old shelter mutt? My dog's were properly bred and selected based on the standards set for the breed is it really fair to my dog's that any sheltered mutt should be classified as an APBT? That's a slap in the face to the guys who bred my dogs for a purpose and to the other APBT's who were selected and bred to the standard/purpose set before the breed.

If you dont know what went into the dog genetically, you have no idea what the dog is.. Its disrespectful to those breeders breeding true to the hound (any breed) by calling an unknown dog just that.. Even more so with working dogs as appearance doesn't define a working dog, the ability, mentality, drive, etc defines.. If a working dog can't work.. well not much else to say with that.

No "proper" breeder will allow their hounds to end up at the shelter, not if they can help it. While there are "pure bred" dogs that end up at the HSUS they are just about all not "real" examples of their said breeds.. On very rare occasion, with proper knowledge and knowing exactly what to look for you can find a gem in the rough..but it doesn't happen often..at all.

Nothing wrong with mutts for those wanting a great family pet but you aint going to find a real worker or real bulldog at the shelter. These type of dogs are an elite group of world class working dogs earning the right to be called as such by results..by doing what they were designed to do at the up most ability and function.

No background, no known history from responsible, respectable and accurate documentation..Hand written or registry form..No idea what breed(s) are in the said dog.

Not to mention if a hound went into the shelter with any level of real drive..that dogs chances are slim to none..Not that many people know what real drive is not to mention how to properly handle it.

I know some do and if they have pedigree's than it's fine call them what they are. But if they don't than they are mutt's. I know some owner's who surrender dog's do have paper's on the dogs and sometimes they will hand them over to the rescue group I have seen this before but it's not very common.

As someone who puts a great deal of dedication in my dogs, working them, caring for them, etc.. I find it disrespectful to have someone else come around and group their lazy dog or hyper dog (not the same as drive) or genetic mess dog one of the same.. Call it what it is.

people get offended when they hear the word mutt but really it is just a cross breed or sheesh call it an all american mixed breed if you feel that sensitive. Basically a mutt, mixed breed, or all american, is for any dog without proof of pedigree. It may look very close to a similar breed but no way to tell for sure so call it what it is.

Spaztek24 is an unknown quantity at this point
I have this dog!!!!

What a coincidence this is. My daughter was researching our dogs breed through a search engine and stumbled upon this post. we adopted a brindle colored plott/pit/lab mix from a shelter in Aiken SC around November of 2011. Upon seeing the pics I realize that it's him!

He has turned out to be a wonderful pup. Vet says he is mostly pit, but believes him to be part greyhound perhaps. I agree with this somewhat due to his head shape and his goofball temperment, in addition to his belief that he can fit on everyone's lap He does, though, definitely have some kind of sighthound in him. He has grown very long and lanky since last year and tops out around 80 pounds. he is great with our cats, rabbits and guinea pigs in the house, but will give chase if he sees a cat or squirrel running outdoors, and cannot be called back. Therefore he is not allowed off leash.

Still shocked to have found these pics of him on a random Google image search!!!
