Sweepee Rambo, A Blind Chihuahua & Chinese Crested Mix, Wins 2016 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest


Sweepee Rambo is blind a Chihuahua and Chinese Crested mix from Van Nuys, California who used her hairless body and hanging tongue to win the 2016 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest.

Chief Judge Brian Sobel said “Scoring was tough with so many uniquely qualified dogs but we’re confident that Sweepee will be a magnificent champion!”

Seventeen homely hounds competed in the annual World’s Ugliest Dog® contest for the title and world fame. An Ugly Dog contest has been held in the small California coastal town for over 50 years, 28 of them at the Sonoma-Marin Fair.
