Ilene Riva’s 9 year old Maltipoo, ZZ, was not born a star, she became one. ZZ was awarded the title of “America’s Most Popular Dog” at the 15th Annual New York Pet Fashion Show Presented by TropiClean on February 8, 2018.

The New York Pet Fashion Show is the largest pet fashion and animal rescue benefit in the world.

This year’s theme was “Country Couture for Animal Rescue” and featured the contest winner of “America’s Most Popular Dog” named ZZ. ZZ’s popularity stems from her busy social life, which includes attending NYC doggie parties and walking the doggie fashion runway coast to coast. ZZ’s other claim to fame is her popular blog, “zztalks.com” where she is like the Carrie Bradshaw of the canine community, covering topics such as puppy love and fashion trends. But, ZZ is not just a beauty, she has brains too, she has earned her Canine Good Citizen Certification and she’s also a Certified Pet Therapy Dog.

“ZZ is America’s Most Popular Dog,” says Illene Riva. “It was a fierce competition, but I am thrilled she won.”
