Meet Quasi Modo, a former shelter dog, a Loxahatchee, Florida resident and now the world's ugliest dog!
For exhibiting "excellence in ugliness," the 10 year-old, pit bull-Dutch Shepard mix took home the top prize at the 27th annual World Ugliest Dog contest
last Friday in Petaluma, California.
Quasi beat out a field of 27 dogs, which are judged on categories like first impressions, unusual attributes, natural ugliness, personality and audience impression.
According to the dog's biography
, Quasi likes to "run, play and enjoy life to the fullest," despite her odd appearance, which is due to multiple spinal defects.
Quasi's owners took home a $1,500 prize and will start a media tour culminating with a stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
