Have you seen this yet? This little 2 lb guy was initially confused with a rat when he was found abandoned behind an apartment building.
Yoda's short tufts of hair, protruding tongue, and long, seemingly hairless legs were enough to earn it the World's Ugliest Dog title at a Northern California fair. He is a 14-year-old Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix owned by Terry Schumacher of Hanford, CA.
There is some prestige to winning this annual contest, now in it's 23rd year, at the Sonoma Marin Fair. Chinese Crested and Chihuahuas have frequently taken the title the comes with a $1,000 check and a photo shoot. Yoda was a crowd favorite through the entire voting process.
Do you have a dog with a face that only a parent could love? Or are you surrounded by dogs with traditional beauty?
A pedigree Chinese crested won in 2008 and another Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix was the ugliest in 2007.
In past years, the winner's owner has received a $1,000 check.
