The 31st annual World’s Ugliest Dog Contest went down this weekend in northern California and the winner this year is . . . well, not that ugly.
The winner is a small mutt named Scamp the Tramp. His signature features are beady eyes and wild, disheveled, multicolored hair . . . some of which has matted into DREADLOCKS. He also has short, stubby legs and zero teeth.
He’s kinda ugly, sure . . . but you might not even turn your head if you saw him on the street.
The runner up was a Pekinese named Wild Thing with tons of hair and a tongue that droops out of the side of its mouth.
Scamp the Tramp’s owners will get a trophy, $1,500 in cash, and an appearance on the “Today”show. The contest will also make a $1,500 donation to an animal shelter in Scamp’s name.
Congratulations to the new 2019 World’s Ugliest Dog winner, Scamp The Tramp! 🏆 Charming the judges with her beauty and talent Scamp The Tramp pulled in front of the pack, taking this year’s crown at the Sonoma-Marin Fair. Proudly sponsored by Amica Mutual Insurance Co.
