The competition was ruff. The claws came out. People all over New Jersey sent in photos of their pets wearing some of the craziest Halloween costumes you could get over top of four legs. Dogs were heavily represented, as well as cats. We even had ducks, ferrets, tortoises, guinea pigs, and more join in. Ultimately the winner of the pet costume contest was a bearded dragon!

Boo the bearded dragon dressed as a cowboy in a Southwest backdrop was picked by the judges as the favorite. Boo's pic was submitted by owner Elizabeth Gibbs from Jackson, New Jersey. Elizabeth wins a brand new Amazon Echo!

We thank everyone who sent in a photo of their pet and please know the people who picked the winner had a difficult time. There was a lot of debate but in the end the one pic that everyone seemed to keep coming back to the most was Boo in the cowboy hat.

Congrats to Elizabeth and Boo and Happy Halloween to all!
