OAKLAND, Calif., July 16 (UPI) -- A canine candidate is hoping to make a paw print on the Bay Area political scene by running for mayor of Oakland.

Einstein the dog of Occupy Oakland is seeking to beat out incumbent Mayor Jean Quan. In addition to the shepherd mix, there are 20 humans who are vying for the job.

"He's a very good dog," the furry politician's slogan states. "He'll be a very good mayor!"

Unfortunately, Einstein's paws have prevented him from filling out paperwork, so he's not on the Oakland City Clerk's candidate page.

That difficulty hasn't stopped him from setting up a webpage and a Twitter account.

"I like to run. A lot! I mean A LOT! So make no mistake, I can make it all the way to the finish line, and I invite you to join me," he writes. "What gets under my collar is Oakland City officials not doing their job."
