Dog-Breed Pumpkin Stencils: LOL Outtakes

Greedy Golden
Carve a Halloween pumpkin that looks like your favorite dog using our free stencils. And enjoy looking at our canine models when they're behaving like, well, dogs.

Jump, Dog, Jump

Talk about being nimble and quick -- Bear, the Pomeranian, jumped over the jack-o'-lantern to get what he wanted.

Angry Doggy

Oreo the border collie must have thought the pumpkin was attracting too much attention! (Knowing how sweet Oreo is, it's more likely she was starting to yawn. But it's Halloween, right? So scary is better.)


Marlo the cocker spaniel thinks being a supermodel is hard work.

Time to Rest

We get it Marlo; you're completely exhausted. You deserve your beauty rest.

Peanut Butter Tricks

"Where's the peanut butter?" Dobey the Doberman pinscher knows he smells something he likes.

Woof, Woof

Meeko, a Siberian husky, was a perfect gentleman when he posed with the pumpkin. Now he's ready for his reward. Good boy, Meeko.


"Say Cheese!" Sophie, a miniature schnauzer, gives the camera her cutest smile.

Inspector Terrier

Patches, a curious Boston terrier, has to investigate what's inside the pumpkin.

Get Away!

Zoe the shih tzu thought she was looking in a mirror -- and apparently didn't like what she saw.

Puppy Love

And they called it puppy love. Best pals Thomas and Lola, Cavalier King Charles spaniels, show how much they love each other.

Curious Puppy

Tela, a 3-month-old German shepherd, takes a closer look at the pumpkin bearing her likeness.

Peek-a-Boo Shepherd

Bored with the photo shoot, Tela hides behind the German shepherd pumpkin.

Bulldog in Motion

Luca, an American bulldog puppy, prefers running to posing. (Note that Luca is an American bulldog while the stencil features an English bulldog. You might need to adapt the stencil to your particular dog.)

Bulldog Chow

Luca decides the pumpkin stem is extra-tasty, despite the plethora of dog biscuits offered during the photo shoot.

Begging for Snacks

Scout, a Jack Russell terrier, ignores the pumpkin in favor of the treat her master is holding off-camera.

Chihuahua Alert

"Did I hear someone mention string cheese?" Maya, a Chihuahua-miniature pinscher mix, stays alert during her modeling session.

Scottie Tantrum

Gigi, a Scottish terrier, loses interest FAST in her look-alike pumpkin partner and goes into tantrum mode.

Poodle Pout

Carl, a standard poodle with championship bloodlines, sees no benefit in facing the camera.

Pug Posterior

Our favorite pug, Chunky, agrees with Carl (Slide 21). Posing for the camera is NOT a priority.

Mirror Image?

Chunky has a hard time believing that he looks like the dude carved into the gourd.

Please Shoot My Good Side

Matilda, a young boxer, appears to think she has the Drew Barrymore chin and should be shot in a different way than the photographer has proposed.

That's Hot!

Mouse, the miniature dachshund socialite, dares you to think the pumpkin stencil is cuter than she is in real life.


Darcy, a chocolate lab, lets her owner know what she thinks about the photography process.

Forget Halloween

"Hand over the Christmas Cookies and no one gets hurt." Gordie the Yorkshire terrier anticipates his favorite season of the year.

Greedy Golden

Howie, a golden retriever, considers his options: Halloween candy vs. Christmas cookies. TIE!
