PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) -- A 17-year-old Chinese Crested Chihuahua with legs bowed out like a frog and an oozing sore is the winner of this year's World's Ugliest Dog contest.

SweePee Rambo took home the title at the annual Petaluma World's Ugliest Dog contest Friday night at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds after besting 15 other malformed pooches, The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/299mdGb).

Judges in the contest, now on its 28th year, take into account bad appearance, including stench, poor complexion and a host of other inherited and acquired maladies.

SweePee has a mohawk that glistens in the sun and a tongue that sticks out. She is blind in both eyes and has to wear doggie diapers.


In the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, where there were more beasts than beauties, it was hard to beat a wrinkled, wispy-haired, bony Chinese crested Chihuahua named Sweepee Rambo.

The dog — 17 years old, blind in both eyes and, at four pounds, not much bigger than two hands put together — was a crowd favorite at the contest, which was held on Friday night at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif.

The audience went wild for the blue-eyed dog, with some people carrying signs that read, “Sweepee for President,” said the fair’s marketing director, Karen Spencer.
