Mugly, a Chinese crested from the UK, won the World’s Ugliest Dog contest in Northern California on Friday.
Mugly will take home $1,000 and a year’s worth of dog cookies.
He beat out 28 other ugly dogs — all of whom can be found here.
The 8-year-old rescue dog from the United Kingdom will also be invited for a photo shoot and will receive a VIP stay at the local Sheraton.
“I couldn’t speak when they announced Mugly’s name,” said Bev Nicholson, the dog’s owner. “I didn’t know which way to look. I was shaking as much as the dog.”
Chinese cresteds traditionally take top honors at the event, held each year at the Marin-Sonoma Fairgrounds. Last year’s winner, Yoda, was a Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix. The 15-year-old dog died in March.
