The World’s 28 Most Powerful Pups

Recently, Michelle Obama tweeted a picture of her family’s newest member, an adorable female Portuguese water puppy named Sunny, which the White House blog says was named for her cheerful personality. (Sunny, like Bo before her, is also safe for the Obama kids—who are allergic to some dogs.) This new presidential addition raises the question—on the spectrum of powerful dogs, which reigns supreme?
