March: the bringer of spring, warmer weather and National Puppy Day!

That’s right, March 23 is a holiday that was created to not only celebrate the loveable pups in our lives, but also to help save abandoned and abused puppies worldwide.

In honor of puppies everywhere, we’re sharing fan-submitted pictures of adorable furry friends that you’re sure to "ooh" and "aah" over. Check out our photo gallery below and be sure to share a photo of your puppy on our Facebook page.

He's only 9 weeks old, but Utley is already one handsome pup. Just look at that adorable mug. 

How cute is this? Sadie, a 3-month-old Yorkie mix, was barely bigger than her human's watch when he brought her home.

Atticus Bleu Finch Bader has quite a name to live up to. We don't think the 8-month-old pup will have any trouble.

Having a new puppy is often like having a toddler, and Bailey, a chocolate Labrador Retriever, is no exception at 4 months.

Max is already a pro at good manners. The 3-month-old Labrador-Border Collie mix patiently sits and waits for treats.

This tiny Frenchie is named Henry, and he is taking what may be the cutest nap ever.

Ein, a 10-week-old Corgi, will be so fresh and so clean after he enjoys his very first bath.

Tacoma, an adorable rescue puppy, waves hi to the camera. What a friendly pup! 

Where did Charlie go? The 8-week-old Golden Retriever plays the most adorable game of hide-and-seek in his human's bag.

This big-eared beauty is Lief, a 4-month-old German Shepherd.

It's hard to be a puppy. Hunter, the Golden Retriever, is ready for a well-deserved nap.

Libby, a 13-week-old American Staffordshire Terrier, enjoys being the baby of her family.  

At 10 weeks old, Juno can already call herself a professional napper. She can nod off at any time, anywhere.

Pixie is a 10-week-old English Springer Spaniel who loves going on walks (as long as she can take plenty of breaks).

Danner, a 10-week-old German Wirehaired Pointer, is starting his bird-retrieving training early. Ducks don't stand a chance against this tough little guy.
