Dog Steals Beauty Pageant Spotlight With His Pawsome Strut Down The Runway.

A two-photo collage. The first is of a large, black and brown dog walking on a catwalk. A woman talking with a microphone stands at a distance behind the dog. The second shows the same dog, from a behind view, now that they’ve made it farther down the catwalk. The audience watching smiles and claps.

Despite what the name “catwalk” implies, dogs are more than welcome there.

The Miss São Mateus do Sul competition in Brazil was going perfectly — locals were giving their runway best as they sought after first place. Then, unexpectedly, a four-legged beauty decided to enter. You guessed it: a dog!

The audience and contestants alike cheered on this very good boy as he made his way across the catwalk, seemingly trained for this very moment. He didn’t linger for long, but his brief appearance certainly had a lasting impact.

“I loved how everyone reacted to him,” Jennifer Jaworski, the competition’s winner later told The Dodo. “I definitely applauded even more. I love animals.”

This elegant pup may have not placed, but he’s a winner in our hearts!

Watch this unexpected contestant strut his stuff below, and don’t forget to share.
