21 Punny National Puppy Day Instagram Captions That Are Pawsitively Pawesome


Although you would probably celebrate the existence of puppies every single day if you could (and who could blame you?), you'll have a legitimate excuse to do so on Mar. 22. That date is National Puppy Day, a little "holiday" dedicated to puppies of all kinds. This is your chance to spend a whole day thinking about how much of a gift puppies are to this world. Seriously, do we even deserve them?! Probably not! They're so pure and adorable and sweet, and even when they're completely destroying something (as they typically are known to do), they still manage to look so cute while doing it that you can barely even get mad at them. It's also your chance to post pictures of your own puppy on social media (or even a throwback to when your dog was a puppy, or a random pup), just to show off. Also, puppy pictures get a lot of engagement! And if you need a fun caption, we've got a bunch of ideas for punny National Puppy Day Instagram captions you'll definitely want to use.

National Puppy Day isn't only about squealing over adorable pictures of baby dogs, though - it has a bit of a deeper meaning as well. It's meant to bring awareness to puppy adoption, and dog adoption in general. When you're looking to bring a dog into your home as your family, you have options - and adoption is always a really good one. When you adopt, you're giving a homeless pupper a loving and caring home, instead of relegating them to life in an animal shelter. You're taking in a little dog that really needs your affection, and on top of that, you get a pup to play and cuddle with. It doesn't get much better than that.

But whether you're thinking of getting a new puppy or not, one thing is for sure: you can still celebrate National Puppy Day regardless. Start it off with a little Instagram photo love, and be sure to use one of the puppy puns below to ensure you'll have the best caption out there.
