Sometimes things are just so wrong, they’re right – and that’s certainly the case with the top dogs at this year’s World’s Ugliest Dog competition. This contest embraces ew by featuring dogs that are so grisly, they’re gorgeous. Read on to meet the pups that took the top three spots.

3. Josie



At number three, the bronze medal goes to Josie! This Chinese Crested mix owned by Linda Elmquist has all the trademarks of a marvelously mangy mutt: the scraggily hair, and a tongue too big for its mouth that makes eating treats look extra silly. Hopefully, Josie takes the top spot next year!


2. Scamp



At number two is Scamp – a Terrier mix that took silver at the World’s Ugliest Dog competition. And according to the contest organizers, Scamp loves to hear youngsters read the pup’s favorite book Go, Dog. Go! by P.D. Eastman. Don’t judge a book by its cover! Isn’t that right, Scamp?


1. Zsa Zsa


And taking the top spot at this year’s World’s Ugliest Dog competition is Zsa Zsa. Megan Brainard and her English Dulldog walked away with the $1,500 prize, a trophy, and a trip to New York. Zsa Zsa, how do you feel?! It turns out this pooch loves chomping on Chipotle – the perfect post-win treat if you ask us!


Thanks to the World’s Ugliest Dog competition, we now know of three top pooches that are so doggone ugly, they’re cute.
