    Terriers are specific breeds of dogs that can be identified as purebreds. Some examples include Irish terriers and Australian terriers. The website below lists various breeds and provides more information.

    The word “mutt” is used to refer to a dog of unknown breed or a mix of breeds. Mutts are not purebreeds but rather result when two different breeds or a purebreed and another mutt breed and produce puppies. The puppies are mixed breeds and cannot be sold or listed as a purebreed.

    In general purebreeds are worth more money and come with papers for breeding purposes. Mutts are your everyday common dogs that are a mixture of breeds.
