The cutest dog breeds according to an ancient math formula

Dalmatians have taken first place in a ranking of the most beautiful dogs in the world. The black and white spotted breed was classified according to an ancient Greek formula used to identify “physical perfection”.

It then calculated their degree of attractiveness based on the distance between the eyes, ears, nostrils, and tongue of the breed.
