Hey, what's that? Look! A squirrel!
OK, so they're sometimes a little high energy. That's just because they know it's important to celebrate life and love every chance they get.
Some of them have seen a thing or two, and they like to think their wisdom only adds to their character.
You might see purebred dogs in the fancy-schmancy dog shows, but mutts are the ones with real talent. Why? 'Cause they're not afraid to try new things.
If there's one thing they learned in shelter life, it's that they can't take a potential cuddle-bug for granted.
Sure, they love luxury just like any other dog, but what they've always wanted is a forever family. Not only that, their mixed-breed temperament can make them the perfect selection for a family with children.
We dare you not to smile with them.
Life's too short to be an uptight goober.
They love a good time, and they're not afraid to dive into the deep end.
Not to get all serious on you, but it's important that you know. Mutts tend to be healthier than purebred dogs because their muddled gene pool makes them resistant to disease. Pretty cool, right?
Speaking of health, their superior genes mean that they'll live longer than many pure breeds.
Gaze into their brilliance, we dare you.
Say what you will about beautiful breeds, but it's unlikely you'll find a dog this preciously quirky at a breeder.
If you're really set on a purebred dog, they might just offer you the best of both worlds. Some mutts look just as refined a purebred dog, but are mixed enough to avoid health problems.
The Humane Society of the United States estimates that there are six to eight million dogs and cats cared for in animal shelters each year. They're waiting for an owner like you, we promise.
