World’s Ugliest Dog Contest 2014
Meet This Years Ugliest Dog Winner Peanut
Is that the face only a mother (or pet parent) can love?
Peanut, a 2 year old mutt from North Carolina took home the prize this year. His owner Holly Chandler says they are going to use the $1500 prize money to pay for other animals’ veterinary bills.
Peanut was a victim of animal abuse. When he was a a puppy he was badly burned. Though Peanut is healthy now he was left with a lot of scars; he doesn’t have lips anymore and he no longer has eyelids. Since he can’t close his eyes they water and drain into his nose. Chandler hopes Peanut’s big win will help raise awareness about animal abuse.
