RIP Gus

We hardly knew you.

World’s ugliest dog dies after battle with cancer

GULFPORT, Fla. - A one-eyed, three-legged dog that won the title of world’s ugliest pooch this summer has died.

The St. Petersburg Times in Florida reports that Gus, a Chinese crested dog, had cancer. He was 9.

Gus was rescued from a bad home and went on to win the annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in northern California

A ugliest dog contest! It's a joke!

No, really, there is an Ugliest Dog contest here in the states. My pup however, is super beautiful because I am superficial. :-)
No ugly dogs for me...sorry.

Yes Rachel is correct, there really is an Ugly Dog Contest. We seem to have too much time and money on our hands over here
