Puppy Time!

Announcing the winners of our Cutest Puppy Photo Contest.

Our first place winner receives a one-year supply of Nutro dog food; our second place winner receives a six-month supply; and our third place winner receives a three-month supply. Honorable Mentions each receive a one-month supply.

1st place

Name: Jack
Age:  2 1/2 months
Breed: Golden Retriever
Owner: Kristi Fiala
Location: Granger, Iowa

“Jack is the cutest puppy because of his big brown eyes that say ‘I love you and I’ll love you forever.’ He is such a happy puppy and wants to please us. He always has a smile on his face and his tail is wagging. We love him with all our hearts!”

2nd place

Name: Ozzy
Age: 15 weeks
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Owner: Jaclyn Smith
Location: Gainesville, Ga.

“I think Ozzy is the cutest little puppy I’ve ever seen. He is such a little character when posing for pictures – he’s like an animated cartoon. Even though he is small, he is great-big when tackling his big brother, Rex, a 140-pound German Shepherd Dog. Since Ozzy is a toy breed, he will always maintain that puppy cuteness.”

3rd place

Name: Sienna
Age: 8 weeks
Breed: West Highland White Terrier
Owner: Melissa Hostrander
Location: Hatfield, Pa.

“How can one resist the soft eyes and look-at-me attitude? This is what makes Sienna so adorable and irresistible.”

Honorable Mentions

Name: Jolette
Age: 5 months
Breed: Mixed breed
Owner: Irene Diaz
Location: Eagle Pass, Texas

“I think my dog is the cutest because even though she spent the first two months of her life as a stray, she is the happiest little dog in the world, always smiling and making us laugh with her crazy antics.”

Name: Dino
Age: 4 months
Breed: Mixed breed
Owner: Eric Hardy
Location: Lima, Ohio

“We think Dino is the cutest puppy because as tiny as he is at 2 pounds, he growls and barks with his little puppy voice and acts like such a killer, but it’s only a game. This puppy couldn’t be any cuter as he snuggles with his stuffed animals and blankies.”

Name: Koda
Age: 4 months
Breed: Mixed breed
Owner: Alexis Lee 
Location: San Mateo, Calif.

“Koda’s cuteness extends far beyond his features. Whether he’s pawing at my face or carrying around a sock, his charm always shines. Koda’s cuteness is sure to bring smiles.”

Name: Radio
Age: 2 months
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
Owner: Kate Stevens 
Location: Fairfield, Vt.

“Cuteness is in the eye of the beholder. Radio has brought home a partridge, retrieved a bottle of seltzer water when he was thirsty, and swears like a sailor when one of our other dogs has something he wants. If it makes us laugh, we can call it cute.”
