Since it is not easy to figure out when exactly some dogs were born depending on the circumstances, the world came together and decreed that we would celebrate these pooches collective birthdays on August 1st! Or as the world has dubbed it, DOGust first! According to National Today this was decided roughly 11 years ago by an animal shelter in NY and has taken off.

If you are looking for dogs, always adopt don't shop. You can find your local animal shelter below.
