The winner of the World’s Ugliest Dog contest for 2010 was awarded a $1,000 House of Dog modeling contract and $1,000 in prize money. The top dog was Princess Abbey. She was adopted five months ago from a shelter.
Kathleen Francis adopted her, and has been very pleased, “She’s my best friend. Abby’s done more for me that I’ve done for her”. Princess Abbey won the fourteen dog Pedigree division first. Then she bested the winner of the mutt division to take the crown. The annual event includes a Dog Lover’s Festival and a fashion show with the theme Ugly is the New Beautiful. For the last 22 years, the Sonoma-Marin Fair has been conducting this contest.
