When you think of dogs, or cats for that matter, you usually imagine a bundle of fur that people find seriously loveable, so to hear that there is actually a competition for the world’s ugliest dog seems a little bit harsh – until you hear that the winner gets a pretty decent cash prize. Then it doesn’t seem so bad.
This year’s winner of said competition is a ten year old pit bull, aptly named Quasi Modo.
Quasi is a rescue dog and despite having birth defects and a short back, he still leads a happy life and despite not being the most attractive dog in the world, certainly looks like a happy chappy.
On the competition’s website, Quasi has a profile telling people about him:
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.
I love to meet new people and teach them about diversity.
He actually won $1,500 for being crowned the ugliest dog – so really, it’s not all bad, and for my money, Quasi is actually far better looking than a couple of the other entrants.
In case you were wondering, those were the second and third placed entrants – and you can really see why.
