Two times a year we get to celebrate National Mutt Day. Also known as National Mixed Breed Day, it is a day dedicated to embracing, saving and celebrating mixed breed dogs. It is celebrated on July 13th, and December 2nd every year.

Mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved, they live longer and are just as able to perform the duties of pure bred dogs - such as bomb and drug sniffing, search and rescue and guiding the blind. There are millions of loving and healthy mixed breed dogs sitting in shelters, who are desperately searching for a new home.

On Facebook we asked you to show off pictures of your mutts or mixed breeds to celebrate the holiday, and we got some awesome pictures. Take a look at 98.1 Nation's mutts and get ready to say "aww" because they are super cute!
