Quasi Modo, a short-spined mixed-breed dog from Florida, was named the world’s ugliest dog Friday for epitomizing “excellence in ugliness.”
The 10-year-old pit bull-Dutch shepherd mix won the dubious title from a pool of 27 underdogs at the annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California.
The judges score the dogs on first impressions, unusual attributes, natural ugliness, personality and audience impression, according to the event’s website.
The first runner-up was Sweepee Rambo, a Chinese crested Chihuahua, who takes pride in her soft freckled skin and blond mohawk. The second runner-up was Frodo, a 12.5-year-old Chinese crested hairless-Chihuahua mix from Sparks, Nevada, who loves to be bossy, according to his official bio.
Because many of the homely hounds, including this year’s ugliest, come from shelters and puppy mills, the contest aims to encourage adoption of dogs regardless of their physical shortcomings.
Quasi Modo’s owner found him at an animal shelter, according to his biography on the contest’s website.
