Posted Breed: Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie / Red Heeler. Looks like: Shetland Sheepdog Mix Male, 13 years old, about 26 pounds Fennec is completely blind, and quite hearing impaired but gets along just fine. He has a quiet, gentle energy, and gets along well with other dogs, though he can be startled if another dog enters his space unexpectedly. He can be led by gentle touch and is very appreciative of affection. If you touch his sides to let him know you're going to lift him, he will leap up into the air to make it easier for you! Fennec will occasionally bump into other dogs without meaning to, but he is able to quickly reorient himself and give the other dogs space. Because of his blindness and deafness, he walks in circles quite often, especially when orienting himself to a new area. Aside from these impairments, he is in excellent health for his age. Fennec's eyes have been removed in his care at POMDR, as they were nonfunctioning and bothering him. He seems to be much more comfortable without them. Fennec is a very smart boy! He is house trained and very quiet except when communicating his needs. He is good with using a bark to let you know if he needs to go outside or needs assistance from you. He doesn't play with toys much but he enjoys making nests out of blankets! Fennec came to us from San Jose Animal Care and Services after being found as a stray.

A.K.A.: A mongrel, mixed-breed dogMore About Mutt Breed
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.See more...
