PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) - People are gearing up to see what pooch will be crowned the world's ugliest dog at a Northern California fair.
The Sonoma-Marin Fair will be holding its annual World's Ugliest Dog contest Friday, and a few dozen dogs will be competing for the title.
KRON is reporting Thursday that dogs have come from as far away as Florida and Idaho, and there are entries from dog owners in Nevada and Arizona as well as local entrants.
Among the entrants are Angus, Pork, Rue, Icky and Quasi Modo, the station reports. Several of the competitors are rescue dogs, from shelters or puppy mills or abusive homes. Among the entrants is Rascal Deux of San Francisco, a 5th generation winner who comes from a long line of ugly champions.
The ugliest dog's owner receives $1,500.
