It is one of the most coveted awards in the dog world, no I am not talking about Westminster’s Best in Show. I am talking about the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif.

Last years winner, a Boxer named “Pabst” that had a face only a mother could love,  came up short when “Princess Abby,” hit the stage.

Princess Abby didn’t just have an ugly mug, this dog has the entire package. The 4-year-old Chihuahua, has hind legs that are actually taller than her front legs, a hunched back, and a closed-up left eye.

Celebrity vet Karen “Doc” Halligan says the dog’s problems are probably due to being inbred. “She’s a poster child to spay and neuter your pets,” she said.

In years past the Ugliest Dog title has usually gone to a Chinese Cresteds.  Several of the Cresteds have taken the infamous doggie title, often times making these little dogs celebrities.
