July 31 is National Mutt Day, so I’m sharing some wonderful dogs who are hoping for new homes. These dogs are waiting at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. I’ve had both purebreds and mutts, and I haven’t found a difference in personality or intelligence between the two groups. All photos are courtesy of Best Friends Animal Society.
BamBam is a Labrador Mix who is about four years old. Despite some trauma in her past, she’s very trusting and loving. Handsome Chinook is a senior dog who gets along well with other dogs but does not enjoy cats.
I can’t help but smile every time I see Cowboy‘s photo. He’s a Heeler/Shepherd mix and although picky when it comes to his dog friends, he’s very affectionate with humans. Dukey, a German Shepherd mix, likes tennis balls and may take a while to warm up to a person, but once he does, he likes belly rubs.
Kiki is a Schipperke/Terrier mix who has lots of energy and loves to play with her toys. Roady knows basic training cues and is crate trained. He is eligible for an adoption waiver and free flight to his new home.
Dexter is a handsome Beagle (mix?) who reminds me of my dog, Theo. Cautious around strangers, but very loving once someone has earned his trust. Dexter gets along well with other dogs. Squish is a young Boxer mix, who has already had puppies. She’s friendly and calm, and currently undergoing treatment for heartworm. Once she finishes that, she’ll be ready for her new home.
Spartacus is a senior Chow Chow mix who is gregarious with dogs as well as people. He’s happy to take a leisurely walk as well as cuddle on the couch. Donkey is a Bloodhound mix who is about two years old. He is gentle with people and dogs.Celebrate National Mutt Day by adopting a new best friend or sponsoring a dog @BestFriends. Click To Tweet
