If you have ever adopted a mixed breed dog, you know that these one-of-a-kind pooches make for some of the most loving and loyal companions. That’s why the American Veterinary Association (AVMA) has named today, July 31st, Mutt’s Day! Mutt’s Day celebrates these lovable pets and spreads awareness of the fact that 75% of dogs in animals shelters are mixed breeds. These unique dogs need love too!
Not only are mutts just as worthy as their purebred counterparts, but they are also known to be incredibly healthy, hearty pets, and are less susceptible to genetic diseases like hip dysplasia, cancer, and allergies.
