world's ugliest dog 2013

A huge-headed, duck-footed mix of beagle, boxer  and basset hound was the upset winner at the 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog  Contest.

Walle (WAHL-ee), a 4-year-old mutt from Chico, Calif., who was entered at the  last minute, was judged Friday as the most unsightly of 30 dogs at the Northern California competition.

"This dog looked like he's been photo-shopped with pieces from various dogs  and maybe a few other animals," judge Brian Sobel said.

Walle overcame the dominance in recent years by nearly hairless Chihuahuas,  Chinese cresteds, or combinations of the two.
