Video: Mugly Wins World’s Ugliest Dog Title, Beats Out ‘Icky’ in Petaluma, California


Bev Nicholson shows of Mugly — a Chinese crested’s short snout, beady eyes and white whiskers earned it the title of World’s Ugliest Dog at the annual contest in Northern California.

The annual summer Sonoma-Marin Fair held in Petaluma, California plays host to the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. Videos, photos and results of the contest are reported worldwide.

“The World’s Ugliest Dog,” helps its owner win a check for $1,000 and earns for itself a year’s supply of dog biscuits. Both dog and owner receive significant publicity for winning the contest, appearing on talk shows and in newspapers around the world.

Yoda, 1.8 pound mutt from California, took the 23rd annual World’s Ugliest Dog ® Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma on June 26, 2011, taking the title from a field of 29 contestants of questionable beauty. The packed crowd settled on Yoda in the mutt round and she quickly sailed past the Ring of Champions to win.

Last year’s winner, Yoda, was a 14-year-old Chines Crested/chihuahua mix that died at age 15 on March 10, 2012.
