If you have a dog, chances are your companion is a mix of different breeds. You may have an Alaskan collie fluffyterrier, a chubby-tailed German dobernauzer or a marbled English filamaraner.

These are a few of the unique breed names that Costa Rican adoption agency Territorio de Zaguates has come up with in an effort to spur breed-blind animal adoption. The results of the program have been incredible. Adoption rates have skyrocketed 1400%.

Mutts have many things going for them. They have lower incidences of genetic disease than purebreds, as well lower rates of hip dysplasia.

According to the ASPCA, 75% of dogs in U.S. animal shelters are mixed breed.

If you are thinking about getting a dog, check out the ASPCA’s adoption site or visit Petfinder.com.
