Meet Mugly: The Worlds Ugliest Dog

Is Mugly the 'ugliest dog' you've ever seen?

We all have our own preference in the doggie department. Do we like big dogs or little dogs? Do we prefer labs or dachshunds?  Yet in spite of our own preferences, most dog lovers agree that most dogs we encounter are cute, at least a little.

However, a group of dog lovers showed up in California to attend a contest with the opposite thought in mind, the 2012 World’s Ugliest Dog contest.

Twenty-nine dogs from around the world gathered to compete for $1,000 and a year’s worth of dog cookies.

Mugly, an eight-year-old Chinese Crested from Pererbough, Britain won the title. Mugly’s owner, Bev Nicholson, was thrilled, reports the NY Daily News:

“I couldn’t speak when they announced Mugly’s name.  I didn’t know which way to look. I was shaking as much as the dog.”

Mugly (aptly named) is no stranger to being called ugly. Back in 2005, he was also named Britain’s Ugliest Dog.

The Chinese Crested is also a regular in this contest. Last year, a Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix named Yoda took top honors.

Do you think Mugly is ugly? What breed do you think is the ugliest?
