World's ugliest dog crowns sleepy, gassy mastiff

India Tv- Quasi Modo wins top honors in the World's Ugliest Dog Contest

Please send congratulatory dog treats and wrinkle cream to Martha the Neapolitan mastiff, for yesterday she was crowned the ugliest dog in the world.

The 3-year-old Neapolitan Mastiff was a favorite of the Northern California crowd throughout the contest Friday night on a stage at the Sonoma-Marin Fair, where she placed her drooopy face spread across the ground when she was supposed to be showing off.

She beat off stiff competition from 13 other mangy mutts - majority the kind of older, smaller dogs who dominate the competition.

Martha is former rescue dog who went almost blind from neglect, said Ms Zindler. She and her owner, Shirley Zindler, will also travel to NY for media appearances.

A blind Chihuahua-Chinese Crested mix named Sweepee Rambo won the 2016 competition.

The 29th annual contest held in Petaluma, CA featured 14 of the world's ugliest canines, who competed for a trophy and a $1,500 prize. Monkey, a 6-year-old Brussel Griffon, and Icky, an 8-year-old unknown breed, were both rescued from a hoarding situation.

Numerous contestants were adopted.

These dogs - some with acne, others with tongues permanently sticking out - are used to getting called ugly.

The annual event brings together the most unattractive hounds from all over the world and this year's contest is no different.

"He's my sexy boy", Vicky Adler, of Davis, California, said of her 8-year-old Chinese Crested named Zoomer.

She was the only dog at the competition whose handler couldn't hold her - but that didn't stop Martha from snagging the trophy away from 13 other dogs.

Besides the main crown, the Spirit Award is presented to a dog and owner who have overcome obstacles or provide service to their community, organizers said.

The Sonoma-Marin Fair, where the event takes place, says the event typically includes lots of dogs that have been rescued from shelters and puppy mills.
