10 Unique Pups That Are Celebrating National Mutt Day In The Best Way Possible

How are you celebrating #NationalMuttDay?

#NationalMuttDay, also known as National Mixed Breed Dog Day, was created in 2005 to raise awareness of homeless pets, and promote adoption of mixed breed dogs. The epidemic of homeless pets is mostly attributed to overbreeding, and lack of adoption of mixed breed dogs. Many people still prefer to buy their dogs from breeders or backyard breeders, despite the fact that millions of homeless dogs are euthanized each year. 

National Mutt Day aims to celebrate the lives of mixed breed dogs, and to show others how wonderful mutts can be. Did you know that dogs mixed with two or more breeds are likely to live longer and suffer from less health issues? 

To show our appreciation for mutts, rescue efforts, and all things dog, here are some pawsome photos of adorable pups celebrating #nationalmuttday 2016!
