Somebody get this super dog a cape!

A tiny Chihuahua named Chloe from Federal Way, Washington, barked until her sleeping family woke up during a house fire – and she's being credited with saving their lives.

"My mom's little 5-lb. Chihuahua started barking when she saw the smoke," Devon Whittlesey told ABC 13 News. "Smoke was pouring into my room. I dropped down to my hands and knees and crawled to the front door."

Whittlesey and two other residents made it out fast thanks to the barking, but Chloe wasn't so lucky.

Watch the World's Ugliest Dog Get a Makeover on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Originally posted 06/26/2014 01:25PM

The organizers of the World's Ugliest Dog Contest say that their annual event proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or, more accurately, in the eye of the leash holder.) This year's winner, a Chihuahua-Shih Tzu mix named Peanut, is just the latest example of their unofficial motto. We're not sure what kind of effect that title has on a dog's self-esteem, but last night Jimmy Kimmel did his part to make sure that little Peanut feels better about himself.

Meet PEOPLE's New Summer Intern: Lassie!

The Daily Treat: Lassie Lands a Paw-Some Internship at PEOPLE

Originally posted 06/23/2014 04:00PM

Here's one intern who's working like a dog this summer!

It was meetings, brainstorms and, yes, more meetings when Lassie – a 10th-generation descendant of Pal, the pup who played the original fictional dog in movies and on TV – came to the PEOPLE offices for a résumé-building internship. (Hey, even this legendary canine needs a well-rounded education.)

The world's most beloved collie began her day with a pow-wow (er, bow-wow?) with Editorial Director Jess Cagle, who asked the pup to make like Barbara Walters and come up with questions for cover subject Hillary Clinton. Clearly, the dog days of summer are very exciting around here!

Adopting a pet is a big decision – one Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, didn't take lightly.

"They were looking for a companion for [their chocolate Lab] Esmeralda," says Teri Austin, president of The Amanda Foundation, the Beverly Hills rescue where the couple adopted a terrier mix last week. "Adam came in first. Then when Anne was in town the following week, they spent a long time with one litter. We always like people to sleep on it. They wanted to do that, too."
