First Place

Shih Tzu Finn, 13 weeks
Shih Tzu

Owner: Jennifer Wise, Gainesville, Mo.

“Finn is the cutest puppy because he is not only super cute, but he is also a heart stealer! He loves bath time and behaves so well while being blow-dried. He snuggles right up under your chin while you are on the couch, and you can just tell how much he loves you!”

Wise will receive Bramton’s New Puppy Essentials Pack and “The Original Dog Bible” from BowTie Press.

Second Place

Saint Bernard Dozer, 5 months
Saint Bernard

“Dozer is such a beautiful pup with a nice rough coat. He is an AKC-registered puppy. We are estimating his full grown weight to be around 170. He just turned 4 months old and already weighs 61 pounds.  He is a gentle loving dog who just wants to be with you.”

Flinn will also receive The Puppy Pack, containing two books and a DVD on how to make the most of your puppy’s first year, from BowTie Press.

Hafner will also receive “The Big Book of Simple Solutions” from BowTie Press.

Honorable Mentions

Gonzalez will also receive “Puppies! Why Do They Do What They Do?” from BowTie Press.

Labrador Retriever Tina, 3 months
