We have seen some very cute breeds of dog but today we are sharing the some of the ugliest dogs in the world.
For a long period, dogs have continued to enjoy a close relationship with human beings. Most families find it necessary to have one or more dogs as their pets. Dogs are good for security, and at times they are kept as companions to human beings. Though not a normal thing to classify pets as either beautiful, handsome or ugly there have been a few cases where people come out to have a competition in which pets are either classified as beautiful or ugly. Just like human beings, there are dogs which are beautiful to watch and others are ugly.
There are many reasons why a dog is classified as ugly. Other dogs are born with some genes in which a dog is born with various disabilities or it could be as a result of abandonment of dogs from the owners leading to injuries and infection of flies.

All these factors are responsible for mutilating the normal appearance of dogs from their natural beauty to something many are now calling ugliest dogs. Below is a list of the world’s ugliest dogs.
10. S”Ug” No More
In fact, Ug’s is face is something nobody except his mother who will love to see it. The 2-year old who is half blind was found abandoned at an animal shelter in England before being helped by well wishers. He finally declared Britain’s ugliest dog in 2010, prompting hundreds of people to flock Mayflower animal orphanage with inquiries and the view to adopt him. In April 2010, a 35-year old mother of two was declared the successful bidder to assume the parents of the dog.
After completing his adoption, the first business order on him was a proposal for changing his name from -”Ug” to a kinder name-”Doug”. Though considered to be something useless by the initial owners due to his ugly body, Ug went against all odds when he was finally declared the winner of these dogs’ competition and turning to be a source of income to his new adopted parents.

The munchkin has found itself featured in most TVs and print media from across the world.
