Joe Jonas Poses Shirtless … With His Pooch

Uh oh – it's a battle of the shirtless Jonas Brothers!

After Nick Jonas posted a super sexy shot of his drool-worthy abdominals last week, his older brother Joe Jonas decided to give him a run for his money with his own shirtless snap on Monday.

The 23-year-old "Fastlife" crooner one-upped his little bro by holding up an adorable puppy and flexing his bulging muscles in his Instagram pic.

It appears as though Taylor Swift and Ashley Greene's ex is trying to imitate his canine companion's googly eyes in the photo. Even better? His older brother, Kevin, can be spotted photobombing in the background. From the looks of it, the brothers were kicking back in their Texas digs before headlining a concert at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas on Tuesday night. The Hollywood heartthrobs are currently on the road for their Jonas Brothers Live Tour.

While the snap is clearly not intended to be a sexy selfie like Nick's, we have to admit it is hard to ignore how cute Joe looks holding the little pooch.

The middle member of the Jonas Brothers, who has been dating Swiss-born model and graphic artist Blanca Eggenschwiler since November 2012, probably had his female fans wishing they were in his arms in place of his dog.

Now that's what we call puppy love.
