    Mongrel breeders?? Are you referring to just a mix breed?? If so there are no ethical people who intentionally breed mix breed dogs. If you meet such a person stay very far away from them. You can find a wonderful mixed breed dog in any age category at various shelters, pounds and rescue groups.

    Going through a rescue you not only get a wonderful companion, you save the life of a homeless dog and you do a wonderful deed to the dog community by NOT SUPPORTING the "breeders" who intentionally breed "mutts". I have had numerous rescue and shelter dogs..the majority were Danes but also had some mutts and they are wonderful. Not to mention it is quite rewarding to adopt from a rescue group and know that you saved the life of a dog who could have been possibly put to sleep because there was no home available.

    Well I'm in the USA...sorry but I think I'm just misunderstanding you. :oops:

    Here a mongrel is just a mxed breed dog. Could be a specific cross of two different breeds, or a dog with numerous types of dogs mixed in there. Basically anything that isn't a purebred is generally refered to as a "mongrel", "mutt", "mixed breed", "heinz 57", ect ect ect

    Regardless of what country your in though, I wouldn't think you would need to find a "breeder" for such a dog since you should be able to find them by the 100's in local rescues, shelters and pounds.

    i would be happy to recommend some rescues to you phil. for starters i work for IRR www.irishretrieverrescue.com and all dalmatian rescue www.deafdal.co.uk where my own two spotties came from.
    both rescues will help other breeds and dal rescue (jan) will rehome from some of the uks major charities and so would be your best bet.

    i think it's like country says, we don't understand what you are refering to when you say mongrel. a husky lab mix would be a mongrel. a poodle chihuahua mix would be a mongrel. a great dane chow mix would be a mongrel. a collie shepherd mix would be a mongrel. go to your local animal shelter and the majority of dogs you'll see are all going to be mongrels. a mongrel is two different breeds mixed into one dog. it's not a breed, it's a mixed-breed (aka a mongrel). you cant search for mongrel, because it's a slang term (not a real word).

    You would have better luck trying to search for "Animal Shelters", "Dogs for adoption", "Animal rescues groups"...things of that nature. Like Dogmom said, just typing in "mongrel" won't do you any good. Try to locate rescue groups in your area, the majority of them will have numerous mixed breed and pure bred dogs available for adoption.
