Combining biting humor, the best writers, and great photography, The New York Dog is unlike any other magazine on the market. Like Eukanuba, we are a leader in the pet care industry and are proud to be partnering with them on this fun, first-of-its-kind consumer survey.

Gorgeous celebrities like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Taye Diggs, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, and even George Clooney will have some unexpected competition for the title of “most beautiful” this Spring. While these stars are known for gracing the cover and pages of People magazine’s annual most beautiful issue, a new breed of beauties are getting their chance at print stardom as Eukanuba , in partnership with Gatsby Publications, unveils the winners of the first annual Eukanuba 15 Most Beautiful Breeds survey today.

While the competition was heated, consumers nationwide can now view all 15 breeds in a 10-page feature pictorial in the April/May issue of The New York Dog magazine with cover star Martha Stewart and her dogs, available on newsstands today.

As a result, we recently relaunched Eukanuba to offer our most complete line of pet nutrition customized by breed type, size, health requirements, and performance needs.”
