So, I don’t really need an excuse to encourage you to look at puppy pictures. But Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control says today is National Puppy Day, so… that sounds like a great excuse to encourage you to look at puppy pictures.

I’m a huge dog lover — particularly a huge proponent of shelter dog adoption — and from time to time I like to remind the folks who come to our website of an offer that always stands: If you’re thinking about bringing a MACC dog into your family, I’m willing to sponsor your adoption. Just drop me a line and tell me about your plans, and I’ll be overjoyed to do it.

I mean that whether you adopt a puppy or a senior dog or a pup in between — it truly means a lot to me to help a family bring a new source of love into their lives, and to help a MACC dog find a forever family.

But in honor of National Puppy Day, I’ll point you toward some of the adorable puppies at MACC now, waiting to be loved on.

This fuzzy photo doesn’t quite convey what an adorable little dude Benzi is — this video does a much better job. Puppy playfulness and sweetness from this dalmation/pit mix, who the staff think is about 11 weeks old.

Baby girl Smudge is about six months old, and a white and apricot Pit Bull Terrier with sweet, sweet eyes. Gonna guess that if you head by, she’ll deal up the classic pibble smile, too.

It’s pretty obvious from first look that Jerry’s a charmer — he’s about 13 weeks old, and a Shepherd/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. Shepherds are known for being smart and confident, Rhodesian Ridgebacks for being affectionate and mellow… Pretty perfect dog, huh?

Elvis is about a year old, so he’s on the tail end of his puppy days, but he’s a young guy with a lotta floppy ears to share. Bluetick Coonhounds tend to be as smart as they are super devoted to their people, so you’d get some big love from him. And I can’t tell you how thrilled it would make me to hear that Elvis has left the (MACC) building for a new home. 

Metro Animal Care and Control is located at 5125 Harding Place, open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
