National Mutt is the day to celebrate the mixed breed wonders or mutts through love, acceptance and recognising their individuality and unique traits. Mixed breed dogs or mutts are dogs who have the genetic traits of two or more different breeds. Considering their parents are of different breeds, they are unique and may have characteristics that are not completely known to their pet parents until they grow up. However, they may have advantages over purebred dogs. Studies have shown that mixed breed dogs are healthier than their purebred counterparts. When it comes to training mutts learn, obey and observe much like the other furry companions. (Also read | How to take care of mixed breed dogs)
