A 10-year old pit bull-Dutch shepherd mix won the title of World’s Ugliest Dog beating 25 dogs. The dog and his owner took the prize of 1500 US dollars after winning the weird contest. Quasi Modo, whose spinal birth defects left him a bit hunchbacked, beat 25 other dogs and became this year’s World’s Ugliest Dog. Two Chinese crested and Chihuahua mixes named Sweepee Rambo and Frodo got the second and third-place respectively. The contest was organised at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma, California, in its 27th year. In the contest, three-judge panel scores dogs in several categories, including special or unusual attributes, personality and natural ugliness.

Quasi Modo was adopted by a veterinarian in Loxahatchee, Florida. “My appearance can be a little unsettling to some (I have had grown men jump on top of their cars to get away from me because they thought I was a hyena or Tasmanian devil) but once they get to know me I win them over with my bubbly personality,” Quasi Modo’s biography said on the official website.
