Ugly dog wins contest and raises awareness about animal abuse


The owner of a dog that has been named The Ugliest Dog in Greenville, North Carolina wants to enter him in The World's Ugliest Dog Contest in California next month.

The dog's name is Peanut. He was set on fire by his previous owner. Someone found him, barely alive, and took him to the vet. Peanut spent nine months there, unwanted until Holly Chandler adopted him back in July. His eyelids and lips were burned, and he can't close his eyes.

The World's Ugliest Dog Contest requires that the dogs be naturally ugly, but an exception has been made for Peanut, to raise awareness for animal cruelty.
