Every dog owner thinks their dog is the cutest most adorable dog to ever grace the Earth, but few can claim their dog was ever named “Most Beautiful” in a contest.  Drake University recently held its 36th Annual Beautiful Bulldog Contest, and one lucky bulldog owner won legit bragging rights for a whole year! 

The Winner

This year 50 bulldogs gathered to compete for the winning crown. The contest has been happening since 1979, and has grown so popular over the years that officials must select contestants from a lottery!

This year’s winner was an undeniably handsome bulldog named Tank, who is pictured here. His owner, Duane Smith, adopted Tank last year via Craigslist. He says of the pooch, “He loves to play tug of war, he’s friendly with the neighbors—he’s a great dog.”

Tank’s Duties

The Beautiful Bulldog contest kicks off the Drake Relays athletic week. As winner, Tank’s duties included appearing as the mascot for Drake Relays-related events throughout last week. In case you had any doubts about Tank taking the title, judge and Drake University’s Athletic Director, Sandy Hatfield Clubb says, “Tank has just got a great look to him. Great coloring, nice stature, that classic Bulldog face with bottom tooth that sticks out just right. And he’s kind and gentle, which is equally important. “ 

Tank’s Competition

Tank beat an impressive array of other bulldog contestants. Check out some of their photos below!
