If popularity was the only determinant of cuteness in face @itsdougthepug would probably be the winner with some 2.5 million followers on instagram!

Of course we arent going to count the usual tricks that makes all pugs cuter. Posing with food, pugs in costumes, pugs with other cute animals, all these "tricks" for upping your cute puppy game are disqualified from winning the title of "cutest pug in the world".Read More

If you're proud when you can get your dog to sit, you'll be amazed at what the talented canine performer Sailor can do. Under the guidance of her trainer, Alex "Popeye" Rothacker, Sailor jumps rope, walks a tightrope and balances a ball while walking, to name a few of her dog-gone enjoyable stunts. Alex and his amazing dog act have performed throughout the U.S. and Canada for more than 20 years. They have made numerous TV appearances, including three times on "Late Show with David Letterman" and another on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," where the audience voted Sailor the "Smartest Dog in the World."
Alex demonstrates animal training as well as the value of a good obedience foundation and pet safety. Respect for animals is also communicated. Alex entertains audience questions following the program, which may help anyone whose dog is not quite at the sitting-on-command stage.
