Chomper: Ugliest dog in San Diego
Some of the ugliest dogs in San Diego gathered in Del Mar over the weekend in hopes of being proclaimed worst in show.
The honor went to Chomper, a pound pooch with a long speckled tongue that protrudes from his mouth — even when it’s closed.
“Chomper came in as a puppy about four years ago,” said Nola Chastang with San Diego Animal Rescue. “The whole litter had distemper. He’s the only survivor. He’s totally healthy, he’s been to the vet, checked out, he’s healthy.”
Chomper is a boxer mix, about four years old.
Proceeds from the event — this year’s was the 14th — go to the Helen Woodward Animal Shelter and other animal rescue projects across the county.
