The world’s ugliest dog has been named and we’re very confused

The world’s ugliest dog of 2017 has been crowned, however we’re a little confused because we really don’t think she’s ugly at all!

Martha, a 57kg floppy skinned Mastiff was given the top gong at the World’s Ugliest Dog Competition in Petaluma, California.

The former rescue dog, who believe it or not is only three-years-old, beat out 13 other much smaller and older competitors for the title.


As well as winning a trophy, Martha and her owner walked away with $1500 and a trip to New York for media appearances – so I guess it’s not that bad being crowned the ugliest pup after all!
