Here’s our tribute to Gus, who took home the 2008 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest honors at the Sonoma-Marin Fair this past weekend.
This Chinese Crested has been through a lot and bears the scars of it all: a missing leg due to a cancerous skin tumor as well as a missing eye from a cat fight he lost. None of this means a thing to his family. They still love him for his inner beauty and plan to use their cash prize to help pay for his cancer treatments.
