The Ugliest Dogs on the Planet and Their StoriesBy Elijah on October 03, 2012 - 5:16 am |
No, this isn’t going to be about the old hags on ABC’s The View. This is about actual dogs. Come on, you can’t help your curiosity—everyone loves a freak dog! Come take a look at the least attractive of all of man’s best friends.
Breed: Pointer Mix
It's hard to decide if this dog is ugly or bizarrely cute. Could you imagine that little face, begging for scraps at the dinner table? Little “Ug” made his home in an animal shelter in the UK, after being abandoned by some heartless monster who wanted a dog that didn't look like it had been severely beaten with the ugly stick. A kind employee must have taken note of his...unique looks, and the media (ever hungry for a meaningless story as opposed to real news) gave Ug all kinds of attention. Since whatever's on TV is cool, he suddenly had tons of people wanting to adopt him—makes you wonder how shitty the original owner must have felt. Ug was finally given to a mother of two, who renamed him “Doug.”
This is Rascal, and No, He's Not Sick
Breed: Chinese Crested Dog
Look at that little weirdo. “Rascal” is the kind of name you give to a cute, mischievous little puppy when you're a young lad. The name conjures up fond memories of tossing a tennis ball in the back yard and cleaning up poo on the living room floor. This creature, on the other hand, looks like some kind of unfortunate burn victim—except he's totally healthy. This particular breed of dog is hairless and has skin covered with warts and all kinds of gross spots. Excuse me, it seems that I'm suddenly reminded of my first girlfriend.
Miss Ellie: More Like Get the Ellie Away From Me
Breed: Chinese Crested
Here's another Chinese Crested dog, just to prove to you that these canines actually exist, they really do look like that naturally, and apparently they still have the urge to procreate, since they're still here. You would think that evolution or God or something would have sorted this out by now. This particular dog, Miss Ellie, lived to be 17 years old and won several awards (for ugliest dog, obviously) over her long lifespan.
