Every dog owner wants to believe their pup is the cutest, but apparently that’s not the case if you’re a believer in the golden ratio.
The ancient Greek mathematical equation has long been used to rate the beauty of humans. However, analysts at the pet insurance comparison website moneybeach.co.uk have used the formula to rank the cuteness of 100 dog breeds.
