DHAKA: A rescue dog from the United Kingdom named Mugly has won the annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest. Maybe the name helped.
The 8-year-old Chinese crested won US$1,000 and a year’s worth of dog cookies by beating out 28 other ugly dogs from around the world.
‘I couldn’t speak when they announced Mugly’s name’, said Bev Nicholson, the dog’s owner, reports The Straits Times.
‘I didn’t know which way to look. I was shaking as much as the dog’. Nicholson said Mugly also was named Britain’s ugliest dog in 2005.
Organisers at the California event say the dogs are judged on their ‘natural ugliness in both pedigree and mutt classes’.
Last year’s winner, Yoda, was a Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix.
