As soon as you see Gus' photo, you think to yourself, 'Man, that's one ugly mutt!' How about the world's ugliest. That's right, Gus, a three-legged, one-eyed, cancer-afflicted and hairless Chinese Crested dog won the title of the World's Ugliest Dog at the Sonoma-Marin Fair out in California.
Lets just say, we can see why Gus would be deserving of the title. This not so cute canine has a mug only his owner Jeanenne Teed could love.
Sonoma-Marin Fair World's Ugliest Dog Contest 2008 - Winner Gus
The climb from underdog to top dog has been a bumpy ride for him. He came from an abusive home, had to have his leg amputated because of a skin tumor and lost his eye in a fight with a tomcat. As for what will become of the $1,600 in prize money, it will be used on cancer treatment for Gus. He's one tough dog!
