The 20 Most Important Dogs At This Year’s Sundance Film Festival

From a Chihuahua in snow boots to Christina Hendricks’ new fluffy BFF, here are the up-and-coming pups we met at this year’s festival in Park City, Utah. Movies? What movies?

1. Princeton the Chihuahua, who matched his snow boots with his red vest.

Not only was he red carpet ready, but this Chi-Chi totally upstaged his owner.

Showing up to Sundance isn’t just a gift; it’s a responsibility. And we all needed this Shiba Inu to remind us that we need to do better and start taking it a little more seriously.
