Ugliest Dog Show

Posted by Damn Amazing Pics

Chinese Crested dogs dominated the line-up.

Twelve contenders vied for the title of the World’s Ugliest Dog at the Sonoma-Marin Fair, in California.

In this, the 20th year of the contest - there was fierce competition.

A popular look seemed to involve a lolling tongue, offset by flyaway strands of hair.

Organisers said winners were often animals that had been abandoned or neglected before being adopted by people who love dogs.

The overall winner was a Chinese Crested named Gus - a three-legged, one-eyed cancer sufferer.

His owners plan to use their prize money to pay for Gus to have cancer treatment.
