In America there are few things we love more than baseball, apple pie, big budget action movies and our pets.

Our beloved pooches are an extension of us and since we’re American, they are too!

As Americans travel for the Fourth, so too will many of their furry companions. In honor of those travels we bring you “The Most Patriotic Pooches in America.” Be sure to scroll through to the end and vote for your favorite!
