ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- If you are considering a pet for the holidays, consider a one-of-a-kind mutt pup with a great mix of breeds and help that dog find their forever home.

Today is National Mutt Day and and the beginning of the Humane Society of Missouri`s Mutt Appreciation Month, which is dedicated to encouraging potential pet parents to consider adopting a one-of-a-kind mixed breed pup.

With the recent addition of 100 rescued dogs from a shelter in Texas, the Humane Society of Missouri has many marvelous mutts looking for a new forever family. Anne McLaughlin from the Humane Society of Missouri talks about all of the benefits of a mixed breed dog.

Overall, mutts make exceptional pets because they tend to be extremely accepting of their new owner and the price for mutts are significantly less expensive than purebreds. Why wouldn’t you want to take a mixed breed dog home today?
