While there is no definitive answer as to which is better because everyone’s opinion will be based on personal and subjective criteria, there is no doubt that many of us have a soft spot in our hearts for the old “Heinz 57 dogs.” In honor of Mutt’s Day, let’s take a look at some of the most famous mixed-breed pooches in history.
