The three-legged, one-eyed hairless Chinese crested known as Gus, and internationally famous as the world's ugliest mutt, succumbed on Monday to skin cancer at the age of nine, Florida's St. Petersburg Times reports. Owner Jeanenne Teed, of Gulfport, rescued Gus when he was a puppy. His hideous bald countenance was perfectly …
There is an award for ugly dogs?
Now if there was an award for ugly wi.....
No, I'd better stop there.
AC because I'm not TOTALLY stupid.
Well, I suppose
Well, I suppose however bad I'm feeling, I can look at that dog, and feel a little grateful.
So cruel, like in the Notre Dame cartoon. Would you give Hawking a similar award?
Oh, and grr
Oh, and grr at people who put image slideshows on a video site.
Not as ugly as Sam
Sam, whose paws are also popped was even uglier than Gus.
Woken up with a few...
what has been seen....
cannot be unseen...
that was a freaking ugly dog.
Shame we can't put people up for a similar award.
PH because she could be the judge, just to rub it in :P
At least his humans looked nice
Jeanenne is a cutey.
That was, however, one ugly dog - but obviously they loved him.
(ug - getting all misty eyed thinking of the dog I lost 7 years ago now ...)
"Minger mutt in Melanoma meltdown"?
Speaking of Mingers (www.mingers.com) does anyone remember Henrik and his sister?
Is it just me, or does anyone else think the dog is not that bad? OK, he's missing a leg. He's also gone bald, but hey, he's on chemo for the cancer. He looks like any friendly mutt, that's been injured..
If you think that's ugly, you ain't seen some of the scary ones out there. Even a boxer could out-ugly him any day, with one paw tied behind his back.
@ "Minger mutt in Melanoma meltdown"
We have a winner.
It's the normal ones that should be put down unless they're doing something useful. And I don't mean scaring old ladies, or holding their hands.
There is no ugly dog
Unless ugly is defined by behavior, not appearance.
Title. What title?
I didn't realise the ex was dead.
I have some idea what the owners had
I have a three-legged cat (brought to me as a stray), who has lost BOTH eyes to glaucoma a few years back. Even he still looks pretty handsome and still manages to get about the place just fine- stairs included.
My sympathies and a raised glass for their recent loss.
Sam was uglier
This one is no match.
Those of you paying attention (probably in the single digits world-wide, I realize) may have noticed I know a little bit about dogs.
I'm not fond of Chinese Cresteds, or any other Toy^WCompanion breed, for that matter ... This isn't a "I hate small dogs" comment, I don't. I love 'em. I just choose not to own them. Personal preference. (There ARE individual small dogs we avoid when walking our own dogs ... but it's not the small dogs that are at fault, rather it's the owners. And we only avoid them to not have to pay the clueless owner's Vet bills after we let our dogs defend themselves ...).
However, I actually knew Gus. He was a sweetie. Did dog stuff in dog time, the way a dog is supposed to do dog stuff. My own dogs liked Gus. He led a good, if less than graceful, life.
My condolences to Jeanenne.

look at the state of this one then
Now this is an ugly dog
Poor dog. It's always sad when an owner has to put their beloved animal companion down due to disease or disability.
