New Jersey Dog Crowned World's Ugliest
A 2-year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix named Elwood has been crowned the world's ugliest dog, a distinction that delighted the New Jersey mutt's owners.
Elwood is dark colored and hairless - except for some mohawk-like white fur on his head — is often referred to as "Yoda" or "ET", for his resemblance to those famous science fiction characters, his owners say.
"I think he's the cutest thing that ever lived", says Elwood's owner, Karen Quigley.
Most of the competing canines were also Chinese Crested, a breed that features a mohawk, bug eyes and a long, wagging tongue.
Quigley said she rescued Elwood two years ago: "The breeder was going to euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell".
"So ha ha, now Elwood's all over the Internet and people love him and adore him".
Other than the title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $1,000 cash prize.
