Woolley said he registered Angus after reading news reports that teenagers had filed candidacy paperwork and there were nearly no requirements on who could run.

"There's several laws that reference that the governor has to be an individual or a person, and so we are relying on that, and if a dog comes in to file for office, we will not allow that, " Caskey told the Kansas City Star on Tuesday Feb. 13.

"I thought, 'Hey, why not Angus?"

The latest candidate running for governor in Kansas has had his dreams dashed, despite assertions among his supporters that he's just the man for the job.

Angus faces a crowded pool in the race for governor, but Woolley has some fundraising ideas in mind.

Angus' owner and campaign manager, Terran Woolley, told CNN that his dog's decision to run was inspired by headlines about gubernatorial candidates in the race.

On investigating the situation, Woolley discovered there was also nothing barring animals from entering the race, although his attempt to prove it was possible for a dog to take up the mantle of governor was thwarted before it got off the ground.

Angus is a hunting dog of the wire-haired vizsla breed. WDRB 41 Louisville News reported that Brynn became the town's fourth consecutive dog mayor.

Kansas lawmakers are pushing for a bill that would set out clear requirements for gubernatorial candidates, including being a human and at least 18 years old.

"I feel that maybe the secretary of state is scared of facing [Angus] in the primary or in the general election, I guess, since Angus is a Democrat", Woolley told the paper.

"He is a little heartbroken and a little relieved because he doesn't have to go to all those pointless debates", Woolley said by telephone.
