Which are the Cutest Puppies?
You Decide Which are the Cutest Puppies!
Puppies have power. The power of cute. They can turn your worst day bright with just a wriggle and a few laps of the tongue.
On this page we have dozens of cute puppy pictures. Be sure to vote for the cutest puppies in each category.
Don't forget to bookmark us and come back often as we update regularly.

The sad look of a pouting puppy is almost more than any of us can bear. The lowered head, the sad eyes, and the drooping tail converge to overwhelm even the most stern puppy parent. This look is most common when the puppy has been reprimanded; whether for chewing on things that are off limits, having a bit of an "accident", or perhaps merely playing too rough. In the end it's all forgiven with one flash of the dejected puppy face.
Your job is to judge the cutest puppy in each category. In this case, the pouting pooch that would most likely cause you to collapse into a fit of cooing and comforting babble to make it better at all costs.
Our first contestant is this forlorn little pup whose entire demeanor begs forgiveness for some terrible sin. This face gives him a bit of an unfair advantage in our contest but it may still be the look that melts your heart
Our second tormented canine tot leaves nothing to the imagination as far as his offense. The perennial terror of domestic destruction is often associated with pups left on their own and without a suitable playmate. Underwear, socks, shoes, toilet paper, and apparently, yarn are common targets for their misdirected energy. They just can't seem to help themselves. Even before the lecture, he knows he's made a grievous error and judgement day just arrived in the room. Whether it's planned or not, this face wields tremendous power over victims of his terror.
Would this face result in a pardon from you? If so, vote for this little guy as the cutest puppy in our Pouting Pups category just below.
Our third contender gives a hefty tug on the heartstrings. He's apparently a bit of an underdog; perhaps an unwanted, mixed breed. This is no posh puppy living the simple life. His face tells all; peering from a lowly cardboard box, his eyes letting you know he has all kinds of love to give if the right chance comes walking by. If this isn't cute, what is?
Number 4 is merely bored, if you listen closely you can hear the "hrmpf" that accompanies the look. You can vote for him or one of the other contestants below; don't forget to vote for the cutest puppies in all of our categories
Vote for the Cutest Puppies: Pouting Pups
Which Pouting Pup is Cutest?
When puppies strike that inquisitive pose they go beyond adorable. There's something about a bewildered pooch that really brings a smile to your face. Whether waiting for your next move or contemplating the deeper meaning of a situation, some of the cutest puppies are those who have questions written all over their face.
This inquiring puppy is contestant #5 and is in the Curious Pups category. That intense gaze lets you know that what you're doing holds his undivided attention; now who else in the world holds you is such a position of importance? It's no wonder they're so bright, they're such diligent students!
This young pup hasn't yet grown into his feet; or his ears! But he's an inquisitive one. The question is does he rank among of cutest puppies? Only you can decide and vote below.
Here's our third contender. This little guy isn't just interested, he's confused. He takes the look to a new level with the full head tilt. Now isn't the time to be vague or teasing, this little pooch could fall over if he tries any harder!
Number 4 says, Huh? This West Highland Terrier may be a bit confused but he's still among the most adorable pups we've seen. What do you say?
Our fifth nominee in the Curious Pup category is truly baffled. This youngster has stopped his frolicking with his friend and is putting his best nose forward to find out what's really going on.

Which is the cutest curious pup?
Puppyhood is such a wonderful time. The pudgy bellies, the wriggling tails, the little whimpers, and endless calamities. The only thing cuter than a puppy is a puppy with another adorable youngster. Check out and choose from the cutest puppy pictures below.
Our first contender is a roly, poly Lab pup who isn't constrained by stereotypes. Some may see felines as the arch enemy of a dog, but innocence knows no such bounds.
Ok, it does look a bit posed, but how can a wobbly little fawn and a curious pup not be about the most endearing thing you've ever seen?
So what's better than a furry little pup? Why two of course! Our third contender is a picture of two pup pals pausing from a tussle to see what you're up to now.
Our fourth contender in the Best Friends category exemplifies the legendary love between a boy and his dog. Like any best friend, a puppy is both playmate and confidante. When you throw in a lot of wriggling, a wagging tail, sloppy tongue, and the floppy ears of this Spaniel, you may well have the cutest puppy right here.
Nominee #5 is an adorable pair napping after a bout of play. This pair is proof that the kitten-puppy rivalry is not all it's reported to be.
Our sixth nominee is a shot of two puppies that seem to be either partners in crime or at the very least, buds who stick together even in the roughest of times. These pitiful pups look to be awaiting a trip to the gallows, but at least they share their misery.
Last but not least, a pup and two lop earred rabbits make great snuggle partners and enough cute to last for a long, long time.
Vote for the Cutest Puppies: Best Friends
Which of Our Best Friends is Cutest?
A Passel O' Puppies
If one puppy is cute, a bunch must be really cute! See some of these panaoramics to catch all of their action; and don't forget the noses, gotta get some nose action!
Our first contender is a bundle of blonde Labradors.
Then a trio of puppies anxious for action.
Golden's are the most popular dog in the US, maybe they also deserve a "cutest puppies" award too?
On the other hand, if the cutest puppies have spots, these Dalmations have a claim to the title.
No way we're leaving these little guys out. Chihuahuas are cute in miniature.

Which is the Cutest Bunch of Pups?
Like small children, a puppy can be at it's best in repose. Eyes closed, their ever moving limbs still, we imagine their dreams filled with the chase and other big adventures. They'll only be small for awhile, this is the time to treasure that puppy innocence.
Like our first nominee, the cutest puppies can be found, curled up resting amid some of the strangest objects. They seem to merely drop where they have expended the last of their energy.
This darling lab puppy is our second contender. With eyes squeezed shut and his oversized paws stretched out he's clearly in dreamland.
Our third nominee is a demonstration of the total relaxation that many puppies experience. On the back, front legs extended, and belly exposed, at least one of these pups hasn't a care in the world.
This pup is as one with the sofa, how can that not be adorable? This totally relaxed canine is our fourth nominee.
Vote for the Cutest Puppies: Snoozin' Pups
Which of these is the Cutest Snoozin' Pup?
Some of the cutest puppies just couldn't be categorized. So here you have some more of the most adorable canine tots to be found. Decide which you think is the most adorable and give them a vote below!
It may not be what you expect in that basket, it's a puppy. One very soft and fluffy puppy. Why does that make him so irresistible? Who knows?! Anyway, add in the shiny coat and sad eyes, and you have to wonder if this first nominee is the cutest puppy.
Our second contender in this category is a litter of Bassett Hounds with their mother. If they don't win you over, then perhaps the Bassett puppy close-up below does, it's number 3 on our list of cutest puppy contenders. Why is sad so cute? We don't know, but it works for most of us.
Our third contender doesn't have to bark, howl, or whimper to communicate his thought. One look at those eyes tells you all you need to know.
Our fourth nominee is an energetic pup. He's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel whose ears may help him take flight at any moment.
Although we can't read puppy minds, our fifth nominee certainly appears to be a happy little guy. Even if you don't vote for him as the cutest puppy, you have to admit he makes you smile.
This, our sixth nominee, melts us with the quickest of glances. There is nothing like the reproachful face of an English Bulldog puppy.
Our seventh contender for the title of cutest puppy is this scruffy little guy. Cute or preposterous, only you can decide.
Number eight is a West Highland Terrier. He's so earnest looking, we won't tell him he's cute so that he can continue to think he's the worlds' best guard dog.
Our ninth contender for the title of cutest puppy is true to his bloodlines. Born to track he appears to be on the job already.
The Golden Retriever pup in our tenth nominee spot may slowly be burning a hole through our heart with that gaze. We think he has the qualities to get your vote for the cutest puppy.
If you have a puppy that chews you have "slobber". Even though you don't see it here with our eleventh nominee, you know it's there. That one eyed look shows his commitment to the task. The "slobber" and dogged persistence of a bulldog pup has to qualify him for a top spot in our cutest puppies contest doesn't it?
Her is our number twelve candidate. He is neither a rug nor a bear. He is just one of the cutest puppies we've ever seen.
It's true we may be cheating here with a whole pack of puppies, but contestant(s) Number thirteen are too adorable to miss. These siblings manage to make simple running and barking a cause to celebrate.
At number fourteen is a Beagle pup. These little guys don't ask for attention; no, they demand it. And who are we, as individuals so overcome with cute, to deny them?
Number 15 on our list of nominees for the cutest puppies is another West Highland Terrer. Probably at work again, but being cute despite his best efforts.
A vote for number sixteen would be a nod of support for this long haired Dachshund pup (and his color coordinated kitten pal).
This King Charles Cavalier Spaniel puppy does cute with the wind in his fur and a "call of the wild" look. Like any of the previous nominees you can vote for him in the cutest puppies poll below.
While having perfect proportions seems enviable, having a head that is much larger than his body, makes this particular pup absolutely irresistible. He is #18 in our voting poll.
