It's going to be difficult for this puppy to keep his ego in check.

The puppy's name is Guess. Hundreds of people in Minneapolis, Minnesota, are eagerly trying to adopt this 5-month-old pup.

There were so many people in fact, that the local shelter has had to organize an adoption lottery. Officials will draw 10 names from the group that will show up on Friday. The first person from the top 10 who passes the screening process will get to take Guess home.

Why is this pup so popular? Aside from his looks, the sad story about how his previous owner tried to mail him in a box from Minnesota to her son in Georgia, helped boost his rock star status.
