Yippity-Yap—It’s Mutts Day!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 - 10:30am

Part Terrier, part horse? This sweet mutt is currently available for adoption at the ASPCA.

July 31 has gone to the dogs—and for good reason. It’s Mutts Day! That’s right, a whole day dedicated to embracing, saving and celebrating mixed-breed dogs. We can’t think of a more deserving crew.

With the desire for designer dogs still going strong, one-of-a-kind pups are often left with the short end of the stick. What gives? Mutts rock!

They can be well-behaved and loyal family members, they’re just as talented as their purebred counterparts, and do we really need to point out how ridiculously cute they are?

If you’re the proud pet parent of a mixed breed, we hope you’re celebrating Mutts Day by spending time with your furry companion! And if you’re thinking about adding a new pet to the family, please consider giving a mixed breed a chance.

Thanks to all for making pet adoption your first option!TM

My Lexus Rose is part Great Dane part lab. I rescued her but sometimes I think she rescued me. She is a ball of energy that never ends. :)

Twelve years ago almost on my birthday but not quite...I aquired a small black fur ball...I lived in Northwest Indiana and this pup came from Louisville, Ky so what more appropriate name than..."Louie"? His momma was a cinnamon chow and who knows for sure what the dad was, but I am told Louie looks like a Newfoundland but smaller. LONGER story short...his momma was tied and left outside a burnt and abandoned house, her owner just left her and the puppies...I was lucky enough to get one of them:)P.S. and yes the other puppies were all taken care of by my brother who found homes for all of them...

Babyphat and Milli are my grand dogs. Babyphat was my eldest grand dog. She was a mix of pitbull and Rhodesian ridgeback. she passed away in January. She was the sweetest dog and had the most exotic looking eyes like Cleopatra. Milli is the younger one, a mix of labrador and pitbull. Smart and cute. She is the baby of the family. They bring so much joy and love into my family. God bless all the mix breeds that need a new family and home.

My dog Morgan is a mutt. I found him on the side of the road about a year ago. He is a mix of chihuahua and dachshund. So we call him a chi-hound.

My Yadie, Lab/Pit mix, was found last year during the World Series. I witnessed him get hit by a truck and could not bring myself to leave him on the street. He weighed 9lbs and was 8 weeks old, riddled with various worms and would have died within a week. I am happy to say that in less than one year (birthday is August 23rd) he is my 85lb sweetie! Not only did Yadie (penned after the STL Cardinals Catcher) find a loving home, he found a very large place in our hearts...

I have a true Mutt . His name is Parker and I had a DNA test done . Results 4 breeds in one dog lol.My passion is German Shepherds but he would have been euthanized so I adopted him . I put a lot of hard work into him and he came a long way . He still has some issues but I will continue to work with him . Also part of the barking is bc he has border collie in him and he likes to herd my cats. Parker is a good dog in training lol.

Jack - large but timid Akita mix, Bella - the sweetest, big mellon headed pit bull ever, Annie - adorable boxer (love her face!), Alice - the goofy blonde retriever mix and Shorty - well, his name explains all. All were adopted from local shelter. Can't imagine life without them....
