Do you have a cute doggie waiting for you at home?

Well, according to a new study, Michigan's furry friends may not be as cute as we thought.


Mixbook compiled information for their study that shared what cities in the country have the cutest dogs. Unfortunately, Grand Rapids did not make the list.

"As difficult as it might have been not to give all dogs a perfect score of 10 for cuteness, our panel of judges took into consideration various factors when assigning a score to each city's dogs. So whether it was their floppy ears, soulful eyes, or tongue-out smile, we found the U.S. cities with the cutest dogs overall."

Besides the overall cutest dogs, the study also shows where the cutest big and small dogs are.

Do you think Grand Rapids made the cut? NO!

For cutest small dogs, the cities that outranked were Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City.
