The largest gathering of pugs in the world happened in Portland, Oregon over the weekend.

An estimated 1,000 people and 500 dogs gathered at the Portland Brewing Company Taproom.

The event paid tribute to Star Wars, calling the event "Star Wars: The Pug Awakens".

There was a raffle, costume contest, music, and even dogs available for adoption.

Proceeds from the event went towards helping shelter pets at the Oregon Humane Society.
