Yippity-Yap—It's National Mutt Day!

Friday, December 2, 2011 - 12:00pm

Today is going to the dogs—and for good reason. It’s National Mutt 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? Mixed breed dogs 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 National Mutt 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!
