Many Acts on America's Got Talent pull on the heartstrings, but Judge Simon Cowell's recent guest at AGT's latest live show brings the aww-factor to the next level.

Cowell brought a special companion to the AGT Season 17 Live Shows on Tuesday (August 23): a sweet puppy named Odin. All eyes were on Cowell and the green-eyed pup as the pair walked the red carpet, with Odin posing for the cameras as if he was born for the fame. (We wouldn't expect anything less from the puppy friend of AGT's long-time Judge). Cowell also gave Odin numerous kisses on the red carpet while cradling the pup for all to see.
