PHOTO: Meet the Winner of the Ugliest Dog Contest

Posted June 23rd, 2014 @ 7:02am by Chilli Amar


A two-year-old rescue dog named Peanut from North Carolina was named the winner of the World's Ugliest Dog contest in Petaluma, California, on Friday (June 20th). Peanut's owner, Holly Chandler, says the dog was a victim of animal abuse and was injured in a fire, but is healthy now, according to CBS News.

Chandler said, "He doesn't have lips anymore. His eyelids are also gone, and so he can't close his eyes, so therefore his eyes water. The tears drain into his nose and so he has nice little snot bubbles because of it. So it's great, that adds to his character." Peanut's breed origins are unknown. I the only one who thinks having an "Ugliest Dog Contest" is mean...especially when the dog is a victim of abuse and a terrible injury???
