20 Dogs So Ugly They're Actually Cute

 



Ugly dogs are so cute, in fact, that since all the way back to the 1970s, the California city of Petaluma has been hosting a World's Ugliest Dog Contest as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair. The annual contest, which typically takes place in the fourth week of June, crowns one lucky canine as "The World's Ugliest Dog." The winner's human gets $1,500, a trophy, and a free trip to New York City.

Elwood

This ugly beauty was the winner of the 2007 contest of World's Ugliest Dog. He died around Thanksgiving in 2013, at the age of 9. Her owner, Karen Quigley, was so inspired by the incredible pup that she wrote a children's book about him called Everyone Loves Elmwood. And everyone does.

Someone needs to pet this pup right now.


Martha



In 2017, Martha, a a 125-pound Neopolitan Mastiff, was crowned the winner of the World's Ugliest Dog Contest, thanks to her big, flappy jowls.


Peanut

The 2014 winner of "World's Ugliest Dog" was a sweet little pup who was injured in a fire and the victim of animal abuse.

Wild Thang


Wild Thang was another contestant in the contest that year, but he was just too cute! If you find yourself using baby-talk with these pups, there's a scientific reason behind it. For more on this, check out Here's Why You Should Talk to Your Dog Like It's a Baby.


Yoda

That same year, a pure-breed xoloitzcuintli named Yoda took third place. But he had already won the contest in 2011, so no hard feelings!




Zsa Zsa
Sadly, Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog who won the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog Contest, died just weeks after receiving her crown. She was 9 years old. Even though she is gone, she will be loved forever. For proof of the fact that dog's are our greatest guardians
