Mixed Breed Dogs

Meet the real underdog — the one far more likely to end up in a shelter than a purebred. To adopt a mixed breed is to celebrate diversity and root for the little guy. It often means you’re also giving a home to a dog who really needs one.

But there’s a practical side to adopting a mutt as well. They tend to be healthier than purebreds. A mix can be a softer, less intense version of a purebred. Some fans even say mutts are smarter; although, this claim is hard to verify.

But all that may be beside the point. Your little whatever-they-are will find a way into your heart, whether they’re running down tennis balls thanks to their dash of Labrador, or snuggling in your lap — perhaps some Bichon Frise? Who knows, and — in the end — who really cares. They’re your dog!
