Aug. 26 is National Dog Day, but you can improve every day for a shelter pooch by giving one a forever home. And according to research, caring for a pet can improve your outlook too. If adopting a pet is in your future, consider PetMD’s top 10 friendliest dog breeds: bulldog, beagle, bull terrier, collie, Newfoundland, vizsla, Irish setter, poodle, Labrador retriever and golden retriever. Of course, mutts make loveable companions too. Search for your perfect pal at one of the many adoption options in the area:
