Quasi Modo named 'World's Ugliest Dog'

PETALUMA, Calif. - A 10-year-old mutt named Quasi Modo has been named this year’s World’s Ugliest Dog.

Quasi Modo was born with a spinal birth defect that left him hunchback but Friday night he beat 25 other ugly pups and was awarded the $1,500 prize.

According to Fox News, Quasi Modo was abandoned at an animal shelter before he was adopted by a veterinarian.

Two Chinese crested Chihuahua mixed dogs named Sweepee Rambo and Frodo took second and third place in the 27th annual contest.

Three judges score the dogs based on personality, natural ugliness and special or unusual attributes.
