A 17-year-old Chinese Crested-Chihuahua mix named Mr. Happy Face has been crowned the ugliest dog at the contest in Petaluma, California.
The judges said "he was ugly but adorable at the same time."
Mr. Happy Face was adopted last year after being rescued from a hoarder's home. "He was the happiest creature that I had ever met. He hobbled up to me and chose me. I vowed that day; he would be so loved that he would never remember how awful his previous life had been," said his owner, Janeda Banelly.
He has been diagnosed with tumors and neurological issues, requires a diaper, struggles to stand upright or walk, holds his head askew and is the goodest boy you'll ever see.
