Happy National Mutt Day! Held twice a year on July 31st and December 2nd, this holiday is all about “embracing, saving and celebrating mixed breed dogs,” according to event founder Colleen Paige. In addition to celebrating the uniqueness of mutts, National Mutt Day also brings attention to the many mixed breed dogs currently searching for homes.
So in honor of this fun day and this worthy cause, we’ve put together a list of five reasons why we love mutts! We’ve included photos of some fabulous mixed breed dogs submitted by our Facebook fans. Thanks to all who contributed. Now let’s celebrate, and help more mutts find their forever homes!
