What makes a mutt great? The number of positive attributes mixed breed dogs bring into our human lives is as endless as any other dog. Here are just five reasons we think mutts are awesome!
Every Mutt is Truly Unique
Because mutts can include any number of different breeds in their genetic makeup, adopting a mixed breed dog is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Every mutt looks and behaves completely different from the next, so when you choose to adopt a mixed breed you’ll be bringing home a new best friend that is one-in-a-million!
Mixed Breed Dogs Can Achieve Anything Purebreds Can
From competing in dog sports to becoming certified therapy dogs, mixed breeds can do it all! You’ll even find mutts filling roles such as service dogs, police dogs, and bed bug sniffing dogs. Many dogs love having a job to do, so finding the activity that makes your mutt feel happy and fulfilled is fun not only for the dog but for you too!
A Dog of Any Breed is a Best Friend
Let’s be honest– all dogs are human’s best friend. You can’t go wrong having any dog in your life! From reducing stress to helping their people maintain an active lifestyle, dogs truly have so much love to give. Mixed breed dogs are just as loving and loyal as any other and can help make anyone’s life feel more complete.
There’s a Mutt For Everyone
It’s easy to find the perfect mutt for every family if you keep your eyes peeled! Make a list of the personality and physical traits you want in your new best friend and visit your local shelter often until the right fit pops up. Adopting an adult or senior dog will help ensure you know what to expect from your mixed breed dog, and that’s why at Stella & Chewy’s we passionately support the adoption of senior dogs through our Journey Home Fund.
Adopting a Mutt Means Saving a Life
Approximately 80% of dogs in shelters are mixed breed dogs which tend to have longer stays than purebred dogs that are adopted more quickly. When you rescue a mutt from a shelter, you’re giving a loving home to a dog in need. Stella and Chewy, the inspirations for our brand, were both adopted mixed breed dogs!
