World’s Ugliest Dogs (Video)

14-year-old Yoda  won the dubious distinction of “World’s Ugliest Dog” at the Sonoma Marin Fair this weekend.  The annual competition aims to raise awareness for rescue dogs and spaying and neutering pets.

Yoda, a Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix, was found abandoned near an apartment building by owner Terry Schumacher.

The video showcases some highlights from the competition.

Who cares about the looks? Some of them are just too fat, some really special, but some of the pure bred are misbred to physical annoyance. In Germany it´s called "Qualzucht". Means suffering from certain characteristics.

They are cute. I am glad they were rescued.

They all have that "cute" ugly factor going for them. You should see some of the rescues here in Cape Town! They'd knock the socks off any of this lot for ugliness... hee hee.

As far as I'm concerned, there are no ugly dogs. Yoda is darling!

Just shows every dog deserves love (even the "ugly" ones)
