PETALUMA, Calif. – The 2016 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest was held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California Friday night.
A 17-year-old Chinese crested Chihuahua named Sweepee Rambo walked away with the grand prize of $1,500.
Sweepee is blind in both eyes and weighs only four pounds.
In the application for the competition, Sweepee’s owner Jason Wurtz described the dog as having “baby-soft freckled skin” and a “legendary blonde Mohawk.”
Wurtz calls Sweepee a “ride or die chick.” He says she loves riding on his motorcycle with him.
The judges score the dogs on their first impression, unusual attributes, natural ugliness, personality and audience impression.
