Celebrate National Mutt Day With These 15 Mixed-breed Dogs

You may not know their heritage, but mixed-breed dogs are just as great as (and some might say better than) any purebred. July 31 is National Mutt Day, a holiday to celebrate and raise awareness of these fantastic canines. To honor the day, we gathered up some of our favorite fan-submitted photos of mixed-breed dogs.
