We have two dogs:
Josie is a mutt: some beagle in her, and Lord knows what else.
Rooney is also a mutt: we were told his mother was a long haired chihuahua, but he's bigger than a chihuahua.
Both dogs are rescue dogs. Josie was left in a box as a very young puppy at a fire station in Miami with several other members of the litter. Not all of them made it. Rooney was given to a foster when the family moved and couldn't take him to the new home.
Josie looks like a boy, and Rooney looks like a girl, so everyone always messes up who is who. And when people ask me what kinds of dogs are they, I respond: "They are brown dogs!"
Of course, they wheedle their way into your hearts so fast.
