Cupcake Dog is the nickname given to “Staines”, an Australian Shepard dog who made his TV debut on Animal Planet’s dog training show “It’s Me or the Dog.” In early 2009, the dog gained internet fame for its hypnotic staring at a plate full of cupcakes after the footage was uploaded onto YouTube.


Staines appeared on "It’s Me or the Dog” in Season 1, Episode 13 on January 17th, 2009. One of the more memorable scenes in the episode shows the dog gazing intensely at a plate full of cupcakes while getting trained on how to control itself.


The clip was soon syndicated by The E Channel show “The Soup” on January 29th, 2009, eventually spawning many other modified versions within just a few days with millions of viewer hits on YouTube.

Following the viral success of Stains’ Youtube videos, was founded, with Official Stains’ Merchandise, and new Stains’ videos.
