THE WINNER: Walle, this years ugly dog contest winner.
  • THE WINNER: Walle, this year's ugly dog contest winner.

Shucks, Ellie Mae, the Chinese crested hairless dog from Gurdon didn't win the World's Ugliest Dog contest in Petaluma, Calif. A beagle-basset-boxer mix took the crown.

Said the contest website about the winner, Walle:

This is a dog you have to see move in order to appreciate his ugly dog status. Walle hails from Chico and was a late entry in the contest, arriving minutes before the closing time. In a contest that has celebrated the Chinese Crested, Walle represented a departure from the usual. The breeds in this contest included pedigree and mutt mixes of Chihauhua, Chinese Crested, Boxer, Terrier, Pugs, Poodles, and Peruvian. Walle was acquired by his owner Tammie Barbee at three months old and won the crowd with his hind leg stance which demonstrated his girth and large head as he took a biscuit from his owner. She says, “People come up to me and say that dog is not right, but I love him.”
