After four highly competitive rounds of Pupularity Playoffs, Benny is the official champion. Winning the title of "Most Pup-ular," this Poodle hails from Bosley’s Place in Smyrna, Georgia.

Bosley's Place is a nursery and sanctuary for neonatal and underage homeless and orphaned puppies. A birth defect left Benny with only two working legs but that does not mean he’s intimidated by other pups.
