Who's a good pup? If it's your dog, they could become Netflix stars.

The streaming platform announced Dogs, its documentary series about four-legged friends, will return for a second season. The series is all about the emotional bonds between pups and their humans and the new season will continue the inspirational journey trend. That's where you, dear reader, come in. The new season isn't in production yet, so viewers can submit their own dog's story for the chance to be featured in season two.

"We are so excited that our pack is back for season two of Dogs! From the beginning we have said that the joy shown in Dogs helps bring people together and that same feeling will translate more than ever in season 2," executive producers Glen Zipper and Amy Berg said in a joint statement. "Dogs offers us the ability to explore some of the most important human stories through relationships with our best friends and it's been amazing to see how much these episodes have touched audiences and critics across the globe. Most importantly, our fans have become part of our extended family and we are honored to bring them a fresh set of stories that will allow us to connect with them yet again."

Zipper developed the show after meeting his dog in 2003.

"Our series Dogs was created in this spirit — to honor our dogs and to help us recognize that a love for dogs is something we all have in common. Understanding this, it is also our hope that sharing these stories might help us find more ways to love each other," Zipper said when the first season came out.
