This Pup Was Crowned The World’s Ugliest Dog [PICTURES]
First of all, why is there an award for World’s Ugliest Dog?
He’s believed to be a mix between Chihuahua and shih-tzu and has won the annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest. His owner, Holly Chandler from North Carolina, took home the $1,500 prize.
The contest usually looks for dogs that don’t have the most normal and pretty characteristics — bald spots, abnormally large or small heads, one- to three-legged dogs, and so on.
Peanut was actually adopted by Holly after he was abused by a previous owner. He has had some serious burns that have left him with bald patches.
