Cover Dog Model Search

Once again, hundreds of dogs unleashed their inner super models at the seventh annual CityDog Cover Dog Model Search. That's right, we're looking for our next dog to grace the cover of CityDog Magazine and raising money for animals while we're at it.
Pictured above are a few of our former canine contestants!


Big dogs, little dogs, young dogs, old dogs... ALL dogs were welcome to walk the catwalk for the chance to be on the cover of CityDog Magazine. Over the years, thousands of dogs have entered the model search, allowing us to raise thousands of dollars for animal welfare organizations. One dog from each of the below events have been picked to go to the final round and CityDog readers will vote for the winning dog to grace the cover. And, because we think all dogs are super models, each and every canine contestant will get their photo in the magazine!

Kirkland Uncorked was Sunday, July 22, 2012 to benefit Homeward Pet Adoption Center. Congratulations to cover dog finalist Dulcie! To view all of our cover dog contestants from Kirkland Uncorked, click here.

West Seattle Thriftway was Sunday, August 12, 2012 to benefit the Doney Memorial Animal Clinic. Congratulations to cover dog finalist Penny! To view all of our cover dog contestants from Thriftway, click here.

Pasado's Bark at Marymoor Park was Sunday, August 19, 2012 to benefit Pasado’s Safe Haven. Congratulations to cover dog finalist Gracie Rose! To view all of our cover dog contestants Bark at Marymoor Park, click here.

Now we need YOUR help! Please cast your vote below for the canine contestant you think should grace the cover of CityDog Magazine! To see a larger photo of each contestant, simply click on their image. VOTING HAS ENDED!

Congratulations to our winning dog Gracie Rose! And, because we think all six of our cover dog finalists are winners, we will feature them in the Winter 2013 issue of CityDog Magazine, along with photos of ALL of our canine contestants! Woof!
