Valley Chihuahua Mix Crowned World's Ugliest Dog
A Van Nuys dog named SweePee Rambo has claimed the dubious honor of World's Ugliest Dog. Sweepee Rambo is a 17-year-old Chinese Crested/Chihuahua mix that resides with human Jason Wurtz. SweePee was crowned The World's Ugliest Dog at a pageant held this weekend at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, KTLA reports.
Wurtz told ABC that SweePee enjoys sleeping and eating junk food, and she's also blind. According to SweePee's bio, Wurtz rescued her from the pound 15 years ago.

SweePee has competed for this prize before, but lost to such dogs as Quasi Modo, a hunchbacked German Shepard, and Peanut, a chihuahua who was disfigured in a fire. We had the pleasure of meeting Peanut at the World Dog Awards in Santa Monica.
Wurtz says he will use the $1,500 prize to remove a tumor from his dog's gums, according to the Press Democrat.
