What is a Mutt?
Basically any mixed breed dog. They can be mixed with two things, all the way to 5 or 6.

Benefits to a Mutt
They don’t tend to have the generational issues that can be seen in purebred dogs. For example, GDV in large breeds.
There’s just such a variety of looks and personalities to love in them.

Where can I find a Mutt?
Well, these guys are easily found at shelters and rescues! They are always looking for forever homes, so be sure to contact someone locally!
