Puppy mill rescue goes from rags to riches, wins $1 million in cute contest

It's official: Dr. Pepidies, a Chihuahua from Englewood, Colorado, has won the $1 million prize in the national Cutest Dog Competition, sponsored by All American Pet Brands.

Pepidies was rescued from a puppy mill several years ago, and beat 60,000 dogs in the contest.

According to this video on CNN, owner Dr. Leslie Capin will donate every penny of his winnings to the Dumb Friends League, which cares for over 25,000 homeless pets every year.
