World's ugliest dog?
PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA- If a dog could be described as the "Hunchback of Notre Dame", Quasi Modo would fit the bill. But he'll take the title of the world's ugliest dog if the votes hold for him.
He's a ten-year-old pit bull Dutch shepherd mix who's a bit overweight and a little hunchbacked due to a birth defect.
He leads voting for ugliest dog by 10,000 votes out of the 27 vying for the title in the Californian coastal town of Petaluma. It has been crowning the ugliest for decades.
The contest celebrates imperfections and dogs have been brought there from as far away as Florida. The winner gets $1,500 and is crowned Friday night.
