Ugly dogs from around the country came out to the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, CA Friday to compete for the title of World’s Ugliest Dog. Pabst, a Boxer mix took first place.
Pabst was an audience favorite and is the first non-Chinese crested to win in over seven years.
“I don’t think he’s that ugly!” said Pabst’s guardian, Miles Egstad, 25, from Citrus Heights, CA. The 60-lb pooch was rescued three years ago from a shelter. He was named after Pabst Blue Ribbon beer because he had a “bitter beer face,” Egstad says.
Friends suggested Egstad enter the dog in the 21st annual contest. Pabst won $1,600 plus a yearlong modeling contract signed with his paw.
