World's ugliest dog finds a loving home

It looks as though a pretty unattractive pooch has finally found a loving home. According to the Daily Mail, Ug, a pup with two different colored eyes, crooked teeth and an off-center jaw, has been adopted by a loving family.

The Pointer Cross, who has been renamed Doug, has been welcomed into the home of April Parker and her two teenage daughters.

"When people see him they do a double take," Parker told the news outlet. "He looks comical with his bug eyes and cross teeth and he's always bumping into things. But he has a fantastic temperament and is really loving."

Doug may be able to soon fill the shoes of Miss Ellie, a Chinese Crested hairless pooch who took home the title of the World's Ugliest Pedigree Dog in 2009. Sadly, she died this past June.

The World's Ugliest Dog contest is held every year in Petaluma, California. The competition began 10 years ago and sees scores of entrants every year vying for the strangely coveted title.
