Meet Pabst, The World's Ugliest Dog

The World's Ugliest dog contest has been decided ... and the result ain't pretty! Congrats to Pabst, a boxer-mix shelter dog who won the 21st annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California.

From the official website:

As the crowd chanted “Pabst, Pabst,” the celebrity judges deliberated between the so-named boxer-mix shelter dog and Rascal, a former world champion Chinese Crested to determine who would be the 2009 World’s Ugliest Dog Champion tonight at the Sonoma-Marin Fair. First timer Miles Egstad from Citrus Heights, California was stunned at Pabst’s win. “ I don’t think he’s that ugly!” he said of his boxer mix whose under bite was his most compelling physical feature. His sweet personality made him an audience favorite.

The Chinese Crested breed has dominated the contest for more than seven years and in this year’s contest represented more than 50% of the 2009 entries in the pedigree class. But Pabst, who was given his name because he had a “ bitter beer face”, according to his owner quickly won the crowd and the judges soon followed. Egstad, 25, first saw the contest on television and his friends urged him to enter his dog. (Photo: Grace Chon / Shine Pet Photos)

I think personaly thats mean i think the people are trying to make there dogs look ugly but, to me no animal could look ugly i may look a little scary but i dont get why people are so mean to animals and this is a really stupid contest. No one should think an animal is ugly or judge them if there not the cutest dog in the world but i think people should really try and understand animals :]

I don't think Pabst is very ugly. I really only like underbites on bulldogs, but underbites on others still doesn't make them ugly. Oh well.
