Polls Closed: Belmont's Cutest Dog to be Announced Friday Morning

Thank you for participating in Belmont Patch's Cutest Dog Contest---there really are quite a few adorable pooches in town---and the top vote-getter and winner of the $25 Dolly's Treasures gift card will be announced on Friday morning.


Is your dog cute enough for Patch stardom?

Today kicks off Belmont Patch's new contest, "Do You Have the Cutest Dog in Belmont?"

Upload a photo of your four-legged best friend to this article, and in the caption be sure to add your name and your dog's name.

Then, readers are invited to vote for the dog they think is the cutest in the comment section below.

What does the winner get? First place gets a $25 gift certificate to the local pet store, in Belmont, and a Patch water bottle. Second place gets a reusable canvas Patch tote bag!

BE SURE TO DIRECT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY to this article so they can vote for your dog, or enter their own!



  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who are 18 and older.
  • To enter, click on "Upload Photos and Videos" above and add a photo of the dog you wish to enter. Be sure to include your name and your dog's name in the photo's caption so people can vote for you.
  • All entries must be received and votes must be logged by 5 p.m. on Thurday, Sept. 13.
  • You may enter each dog only once. If you have more than one dog you wish to enter, you may enter each dog once.
  • Readers who wish to vote for their favorite dog should leave a comment in the comments section of this article naming the dog they wish to vote for. The winner will be determined by which dog receives the most votes. If there is a tie, the editors of Belmont Patch will determine the winner.
  • The owner of the winning dog will receive a $25 gift card to the local pet store  at 1020 6th Ave. in Belmont, and a Patch water bottle. The owner of the runner-up dog will receive a Patch canvas tote bag.
