Pet pooch Gus wins ugliest dog contest!July 16th, 2008 - 5:57 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 16 (ANI): A nine-year-old hairless Chinese Crested dog by the name of Gus, won an award for being the ugliest pooch in the world.
Gus had lost a rear leg due to skin cancer and has an ear that is also affected by the disease.
The poochs features were further distorted by a missing left eye, which had been clawed out by his owners cat.
Gus, who won the title at Californias Sonoma-Marin Fair, had been taken in by Jeanenne Teed, 46, eight years ago.
The hairless dog has so far cost his owner 2,500 pounds in medical bills, but she is unfazed by it.
Hes so ugly, hes cute, the Sun quoted her as saying. (ANI)
