Mars Veterinary, the makers of Pedigree dog food, announced the country's first-ever National Mutt Census.
Their goal is document the "mutt population" which is estimated to be around 38 million dogs. That is more than half of the dog population in the U.S..
Mars Veterinary sees this as an opportunity by the pet owner to gain better understanding of his dog by looking into "its family history".
Personally I am not sure how all that will work out or develop from a census....But, assuming you want to participate, click here:
Ok, I am jaded. I do question motives. I am also slightly put off by the term "mutt".
In my eyes, if you use that word, you are a breedist and I don't like breedists.
just my opinion
