World’s Ugliest Dog: Rescued Chihuahua Wins “World’s Ugliest Dog” Title – KTLA,0,1569881.story

PETALUMA — A Chihuahua with an oddly curved back and legs and a closed-up left earned the title “World’s Ugliest Dog” at a contest at a fair in Petaluma Friday.

Princess Abby Francis beat a slew of rough-looking candidates for the dubious honor, including Pabst, a teeth-bearing boxer mix who won last year.

Princess Abby’s owner, Kathleen Francis, received a check for $1,000 at the 22nd annual contest held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair.
