Small Dog Spotlight

Filling our hearts with love one small-dog photo at a time.

We’d love to see your little one! Use the hashtag #BellaSpotlight to make sure we see her or him!


Meet Mopsi

Meet Mopsi, aka Meefos, Meeps, Beepis, Smee, Smoop, Smooples, Bug, Butter Bug, etc. She’s the adoring companion of TJ, a fellow Purina employee. Mopsi is a Shihpoohua (Shih Tzu-Poodle-Chihuahua mix), which isn’t quite an official breed just yet. TJ says, “Sometimes she'll stare at her reflection in the mirror pensively, tongue out, chest out as if she's confidently thinking: ‘Be the dog you wish to see in the world.’”

Say hello to the "queen couch potato," Gigi. This happy little Lhasa Apso will snooze anywhere, according to her loving parent Logan, though her favorite spot is by the window, so she doesn't miss a thing! In addition to being an easy-going companion, Logan also appreciates that "G" is hypoallergenic and doesn't shed.

Ike the Pomeranian dog

Meet Ike, aka Ikers. He's a blue merle Pomeranian. Kate, his human and a Purina employee, says Ike gets mistaken for a husky puppy basically once a day. He's actually 12 years old!

You can see more of Ike on his very own Instagram account at @ikethepom.

Roxy, small dog in Halloween costume

When Roxy isn't posing on pumpkins, she's in the window working her shift of neighborhood watch, according to her mom and Purina employee Sandy. For meal breaks this Cavachon – a designer mix of a Cavalier King Charles and a Bichon Frise – enjoys the Filet Mignon & Porterhouse Steak Flavor variety pack.

Hudson, small dog on couch

As adorable as she is, Hudson the Yorkie is more than just good looks – she also knows how to "high five" and even "high ten!" This talented little lady is a cuddler, too. According to her snuggle-partner and Purina employee Chelsea, "She loves napping in my lap, in her bed, in my bed – anywhere I am!"
