All dogs are wonderful, magical creatures—but there's something extra special about mutts. For one, many are rescue dogs, which means you're saving a life at the same time you're bringing home a new best friend. And second, because you're never exactly sure what you're getting with a mutt, there's a certain element of surprise that comes along with adopting one—and often, those quirky traits are precisely what makes them so lovable. To prove just how adorable mutts are—and in honor of National Mutt Day on Dec. 2—we've rounded up photos of the cutest ones out there. Whether you share your home with a pitbull-Labrador-shepherd or a terrier-spaniel-who-knows-what, we guarantee you'll fall in love with these precious pups.
