In case you haven't heard, March 21 is a very special day — it's National Puppy Day! The holiday was created nine years ago to not only celebrate the joy, love and cuteness young pups bring into our lives, but also to help save orphaned puppies all over the world.

In honor of puppies everywhere, we've found 14 precious pooches to share with you.

As if one German Shepherd puppy isn't cute enough, here are two: 7-month-old Missy and 3-month-old Mister.
