Beagle-Boxer-Basset Mix Waddles Away With ‘Ugliest Dog’ Prize

PETALUMA, Calif., (UPI) –  Walle, a mix of beagle, basset hound and boxer who walks with a waddle, walked away with the World’s Ugliest Dog title this year in Petaluma, Calif.

The ungainly mutt beat out 29 other dogs for the title Friday, The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest said in a release announcing the results.

The runner-up was a Chinese Crested, a small breed with facial hair that has dominated the competition for some time.

“This dog looked like he’s been photo shopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals,” Brian Sobel, one of the judges, said of the winner.

Tammi Barbee, who adopted Walle when he was 3 months old, said she gets a lot of comments when she takes him out in public.

“People come up to me and say that dog is not right, but I love him,” she said.

The contest was held at the Sonoma-Petaluma Fair in California’s Marin County.

Walle won $1,500 plus appearances on NBC’s “Today” show and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
