‘Yoda’ wins World’s Ugliest Dog title

Yeah well your tongue would be hanging out too if someone had their fat finger shoved up your butt.

Yoda, a 14-year-old Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix dog has won the 23rd annual World’s Ugliest Dog title held at the Sonoma Marin Fair in northern California. “Ugliest dog in the world I am.”

Owner Terry Schumacher (no relation to Michael) of Hanford, California, says the one kilogram dog has come a long way since she was found abandoned behind an apartment building. Schumacher says she first thought the pooch was a rat.

Yoda’s distinction comes a year after a one-eyed Chihuahua named Princess Abby claimed victory. A pedigree Chinese crested won in 2008 and another Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix was the ugliest in 2007.

So we can deduce from the event form guide that having a fair proportion of Chinese crested in a dog’s genetic make-up will give it the inside running to take out the World’s Ugliest Dog title.

Newswarped would like to point out that we have seen uglier dogs but obviously their owners think they are gorgeous so have not entered them in the ‘Ugliest Dog’ contest.
