Thanks to the internet, the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is growing more and more in popularity every year. People seem to go crazy over the photos, partly because these dogs are so ugly that they are actually huggable. I know that’s weird but it’s true. That works with babies and dogs…not so much with adult humans.
The other compelling feature of this contest is that every dog has a story. The winner is the pup that typically has a mixture of all three – so ugly that’s it’s cute and a story that is interesting enough that you care. This year’s winner is a 10 year old mutt named Quasi Modo. Yes, as in the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Cute, definitely ugly, and a decent backstory. Quasi’s look is due to a spinal defect at birth. Kind of tugs at your heart strings right?
Quasi’s bio is written in first person where she explains people’s initial reaction to seeing her,
My appearance can be a little unsettling to some (I have had grown men jump on top of their cars to get away from me because they thought I was a hyena or Tasmanian devil) but once they get to know me I win them over with my bubbly personality,
Quasi is a pit bull, Dutch Shepard mix. This unique look granted her 1st place and $1500 for her owner. There were 25 other dogs in the competition but Quasi was unique enough this year to bring home the prize.
2ND PLACE & 3RD
Both of these spots went to two Chinese crested and Chihuahua mixes; Sweepee and Frodo. Here are some more pictures we grabbed that I’m sure you are going to love from this year’event. Enjoy, Like, Share.
