It was a fierce competition, but a winner was finally crowned in the World’s Ugliest Dog competition held at at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California this weekend.

Peanut, a rescue dog from Greenville, North Carolina, had once been abused and was burned in a fire before spending about 9-months in a shelter.

“He doesn’t have lips anymore. His eyelids are also gone, and so he can’t close his eyes so therefore his eyes water. The tears drain into his nose and so he has nice little snot bubbles because of it. So it’s great, that adds to his character,” Holly Chandler, Peanut’s owner told CBS San Francisco.

Dog parents travelled from as far away as Florida to compete for the $1,500 prize and 4-foot tall trophy that Peanut took home.

In addition to looks, judges consider the dogs’ personality when determining a winner. Of the 29 dogs that competed, Peanut had it all!

    I agree with the other poster … so now the animal is subjected to emotional abuse? I am sure the poor thing appreciates being laughed at. If you don’t think it affects him .. think again. The only ugly thing here are the owners.

    This is just SO FLIPPIN WRONG!! You are making fun of an animal that I’m guessing you love? I think the ugliest dog isn’t the four legged ABUSED AND BURNED but the 2 legged jerk who has made money in a cruel way by entering this poor doggie into a contest such as this!
