Today is National Mutt Day and is all about embracing, saving and celebrating mixed breed dogs. According to, about 25 percent of all dogs who end up at animal shelters are purebreds. That means a whopping 75 percent — the vast majority of shelter dogs waiting for homes — are mixed breed dogs, otherwise known as mutts.

Post a photo or video of your pawesome mutt on our page! I’ll start with my morkie (yorkie/maltese mix), Cooper.
