Boxer Mix "Pabst" Crowned World's Ugliest Dog
PETALUMA, Calif. -- Pabst, the toothy Boxer mixed-breed stole the show at Friday’s World’s Ugliest Dog Contest at the Marin-Sonoma Fair, defeating a former world champion Chinese Crested named Rascal to take first place.
The former shelter dog fetched $1,600 in prize money, a modeling contract, and a table-full of collars, leashes and toys.
Pabst’s victory was an upset of sorts. The awkward-appearing Chinese Crested breed has dominated the contest for over seven years, and represented over half of this year’s entries.
His owner, Miles Egstad, said he named his dog for his “bitter beer face.”
The annual contest started back in 1976. This year’s judges included Jon Provost, who played Timmy on the television show “Lassie”; Karen "Doc" Halligan from “Groomer Has It,” “Dog Tales,” and “Animal Rescue 911”; and Sonoma-Marin Fair board member Brian Sobel.
