The city of El Paso's Animal Services Department wants El Pasoans to think big when adopting a dog.

So to help motivate large-breed adoptions, the shelter produced a really cute video set to the tune of the classic Sir Mix-a-lot rap song, “I Like Big Butts”. Statistically, shelters have a harder time placing large dogs, which make up the majority of its pet population.

The clip, which you can watch below, features playful, cuddly canines and lyrics celebrating large dogs.

We Like Big MuttsWe like big mutts, and we cannot lie! (You're gonna want to turn the sound on for this 🔊)

That’s why we are reducing adoptions to FREE for the first 90 big pups (20+ lbs) adopted, and just $10 thereafter starting Saturday, April 14 through Sunday, April 22. Come find your new big mutt!
