National Puppy Day gives North State residents a chance to show love to the four-legged friends and family members that hold their hearts.
Kids and adults love their pooches for different reasons.
“They held you, they like protect you,” said Chico resident Ashton Davies.
“I lay down with them sometimes, and we cuddle!”
Christina Gill, dog adoptions counselor at Butte Humane Society, said puppies are adopted really fast at the shelters throughout Butte County.
“Everyone wants puppies so they can train them the way they want to be trained,” she said.
While these pups are adorable, they’re not always the most well-behaved.
Rich Staley said his pup has destroyed more than one his things.
“(His puppy) chewed a hole in the carpet, chewed up my glasses, cell phone and the remote for the TV,” he said.
Whether they’re docile or hyper, the important thing is we love them just as much as they love us.
“They love you unconditionally, and they don't care how you look, what you've done, all they want is your attention and your love,” said Kay Kurgziel.
