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 mutt pup is a terrier/beagle mix. He was left tied to a tree by his original owners when they moved. He was so adorable! We snatched him up and gave him the best home an abandoned puppy could have. He's three now and sleeps with us in our bed. My husband has sleep apnea and before we knew it was a problem he would stop breathing in his sleep. Our little hero (White Dog is his name) will wake up my husband when he stops breathing by stepping on his chest. He's our little mutt hero! The best dog in the world!
