 mixed-breed dog - Article and Reference from OnPedia.com
Both purebred and mixed-breed dogs can excel at dog sports, such as obedience, dog agility, flyball, and frisbee.
Often, highly energetic mixed-breeds are left with shelters or rescue groups, where they are sought by owners with the caring, patience, and drive to train them for dog sports, turning unwanted dogs into healthy, mentally and physically stimulated award winners.
While this tradition is changing, some sports still remain open only to one breed of dog, such as greyhound racing, or to one type of dog, such as sheepdog trials open only to dogs of known herding ancestry.

Ronaldo will relish the chance to erase the memories of the 1998 World Cup final in France when he was below-par in a dazed display reportedly a few hours after he suffered a convulsive fit as Brazil lost 3-0 to the hosts.
The Brazilian turned his marker well and bore down on goal with customary menace but his poked effort with the outside of his right foot from 15 metres lacked power and Rustu should have done better than help it into the corner of the net.
Brazil, making light of creative midfielder Ronaldinho’s absence through suspension, continued to have the better of it after that and Kleberson and Luizao, on for Ronaldo, could have made their victory more comfortable.
