World's Ugliest Dog 2009

Well the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, CA held their 11th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest and the winner broke a a seven year tradition.

Meet, Pabst, a four-year old boxer-mix, shelter dog. This was the first time in seven years that a Chinese Crested dog did NOT win the popular contest. His underbite but sweet personality won the hearts of the audience and eventually the judges. The fact that the judges picked a shelter dog and a mutt will definitely help the cause of animals still living in shelters and waiting for a warm-hearted owner. A true dog lover.
Honestly I don't think Pabst is ugly. Mean looking yes. But definitely not ugly. What do you think? Post your comment below!

Below is Miss Ellie, a blind 15 year old chise Crested Hariless dog that won in the pedigree class.
Here she looks cute but in other pictures, well...

If you have a picture of an ugly dog, email to me at and I'll feature the dog's story here on this blog!
