    World's Ugliest Dog:


    More pics below at end of this:

    Elwood, a 2-year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix, was crowned the world's ugliest dog Friday, a distinction that delighted the New Jersey mutt's owners.

    Elwood, dark colored and hairless -- save for a mohawk-like puff of white fur on his head -- is often referred to as "Yoda," or "ET," for his resemblance to those famous science fiction characters.

    "I think he's the cutest thing that ever lived," said Elwood's owner, Karen Quigley, a resident of Sewell, New Jersey.

    Quigley brought Elwood out to compete for the second year at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair. Elwood placed second last year.

    Most of the competing canines were also Chinese Crested, a breed that features a mohawk, bug eyes and a long, wagging tongue.

    Quigley said she rescued Elwood two years ago. "The breeder was going to euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell," said Quigley.

    "So ha ha, now Elwood's all over the Internet and people love him and adore him."

    Beyond the regal title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $1,000 reward for his owner.

    Haha... the thing is he's not actually *deformed*, just the particular breed has a random mohawk and can't seem to keep their tongue in their mouths.

    The first picture was taken at a specific angle to make it look as ugly as ever. Not nice, that's like total prejudice. But yeah, it's not that bad, normal minus the tongue, so yeah.

    I can't rate though, I'm into cats, not dogs :laugh: but hey. Plenty ugly cats out there too, just not many.
  9. That dogs nothing compared to the last years winner(now decreased):

    This dog wouldn't stand a chance at the title if that other dog was still living somewhere out there in the world :blink:

    But you know what. I'll bet he was the sweetest dog. I've noticed that pretty dogs that get pampered are the really nasty ones.

    He probably was a sweet doggy. It was mainly the eyes that freaked me out but come to look at them again it looks like he probably had cataract film on his eyes.
