The results are in, and it looks like Allentown has been out-barked.

The city made it to the top 15 in the Petsafe "Bark for Your Park" contest, but Huntington, West Virginia was named the winner.

They'll get $100,000 to build a dog park.

If Allentown would have won, city officials had planned to build the park at Trout Creek Park East.
