On June 21, 2013, the World’s Ugliest Dog contest was held in Petaluma, California.
The winner was Walle, a 4-year-old mutt from Chico, California, who a judge described as looking “like he’s been photo-shopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals.”
Owner Tammie Barbee got the dog when he was three months old.
“People come up to me and say that dog is not right,” Barbee said, “but I love him.”
Judges said they were especially impressed by Walle’s bizarre waddle of a walk. Walle wins $1,500 and will make several network TV appearances next week, including NBC’s “Today” show and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
