Doggonit, They’re Ugly! 20 Of The Worlds Ugliest Dogs (Who Are Just As Lovable)

There are some faces only a true dog lover could love (such as the worlds ugliest dog breeds). The winners of Petaluma’s annual The Worlds Ugliest Dog Contest are a few. A competition that began in the 1970s as a satirical take on the more prestigious dog shows, The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest takes place every year as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair. The winner not only gets the prestigious title but gets to take home a trophy and upwards of $1,000 in prize money.

Let’s take a look at some of the faves from this year’s contest, as well as winners from the past.
