World's Ugliest Dog Crowned

Posted: Updated:

At the 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest, a Beagle-Boxer-Basset mix hound won the title.

As a reward, Walle, the winning dog, gets $1,500 and will make several network TV appearances next week.

"This dog looked like he's been photo-shopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals," remarked Brian Sobel, a judge.

Judges also thought that Walle's way of walking was very unique.

Walle beat out the more favored contenders like nearly hairless Chihuahuas, Chinese Cresteds, or combinations of the two.

"People come up to me and say that dog is not right," the owner of the four-year-old mutt said. "But I love him."
