FORT GREENE — Who's the fairest pooch in all of Brooklyn?

Staff at the Who's Your Doggy pet store near Fort Greene Park are set to crown the neighborhood's puppy king and queen at their first prom for pups on June 25.

Ahead of the Who's Your Doggy's Puppy Prom, set to take place from 8 to 9 p.m. in the store at 197 Adelphi St., Brooklyn canines have been invited to pose in front of a gold and pink backdrop wearing a gold crown for an official prom picture.

The photos are being posted on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #‎bkdogprom to see which pooches earn the most votes. Currently, King Charles Cavalier cutie Leopold Bloom is winning the race with 236 "likes" on Facebook.

The picture with the most votes by Wednesday night's prom will win a custom-made crown from local artist Desiree Leary plus pig ears, chicken feet and other treats from the shop, organizers said.

The Puppy Prom will also have music, treats and a happy hour for humans and is part of the shop's ongoing calendar of events for dogs.

"We really like to have fun social events for the community," said manager Julia Rosenfeld. "It's great to do something absurd for dogs that is familiar for humans — like a prom."

Rosenfeld also organized a first-day-of-school event for dogs at the beginning of the school year and says it is only natural to have a prom in June. She is also planning an ice cream social for pups later in the summer.
