Blind dog with oozing sore wins World's Ugliest Dog contest
PETALUMA - A 17-year-old Chinese Crested Chihuahua with legs bowed out like a frog and an oozing sore is the winner of the World's Ugliest Dog contest.
SweePee Rambo took home the title at annual Petaluma's World's Ugliest Dog contest Friday night after topping 15 other malformed pooches.
Judges in the contest, now on its 28th year, take into account bad appearance, including stench, poor complexion and a host of other inherited and acquired maladies.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that SweePee has a mohawk that glistens in the sun and a tongue that sticks out. She is blind in both eyes and has to wear doggie diapers.
Owner Jason Wurtz says he will use the $1,500 the two won to pay for the removal of a tumor that recently popped up on SweePee's gum line.
