It's not just the prestigious prize of the Palme D'or that brings excitement at the Cannes Film Festival but the Palm Dog!

It's an award for the best performance of a four legged pooch in a movie.

A Chihuahua from the film "Dogman" won this year's prize, with producer Jeremy Thomas on hand to accept it with a look-a-like four legged friend.

The intense movie is based loosely on the story of a real-life homicide committed by a drugged-up canine groomer during the 1980s.

Cannes has hosted the barking trophy since 2001 and it's described as 'the world's best-known accolade for doggy's on screen.'
