The World’s Ugliest Dog for 2019 has been crowned at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. The honor goes to Scamp the Tramp, a former stray from Los Angeles.
Fit with gray dreadlocks, frizzy fur and a tongue that hangs out a little to far, he’s channeling musician Keith Richards, of the Rolling Stones, his owner said
Scamp faced some tough competition, each fit with equally unique hairstyles and wacky smiles.
Newly-crowned Scamp and his owner are now headed to New York City to appear on the Today Show. The pair are also taking home $1,500.
According to his biography, Scamp is a busy dog. He visits residents of a nursing home and helps first graders by letting them read to him. He is also an ambassador for the Humane Society of Sonoma County. While Scamp has fur issues, he does not have the malevolently evil appearance of some past winners. -via Fark
