Pumpkin sang an aria from Madame Butterfly in the finals of a contest sponsored by a flea-control product.
The 12 other finalists, which included one cat, were selected from 16 cities across North America during the summer.
Pumpkin's owner is an opera singer and teacher from Toronto. She says Pumpkin sings anything she does, which sometimes interferes with her teaching.
The runner-up was a San Francisco beagle named Theo. He sang Happy Birthday with his master, Charlie Robert, who got Theo from a rescue shelter.
Pumpkin's grand prize included a professional recording contract of her winning performance.
