Meet Quasi Modo, who was just declared the world’s ugliest dog by the World’s Ugliest Dog Competition. The event is held annually in California. Quasi is one of 27 dogs that competed on Friday. She’s a 10-year- old mixed breed who won $1,500 for her owners, Veterinarian Virginia Sayre and her husband, Mike Carroll.
“We aren’t interested in lineage, it’s the inner beauty and personality that shine in our World’s Ugliest Dog Contest,” said Karen Spencer, Sonoma-Marin Fair marketing director. Despite Quasi’s alarming appearance, she is quite loveable and friendly. “People who love dogs get her, but I’ve had grown men jump on top of a truck to get away from her. They don’t know what to make of her,” Sayre said.
Multiple birth defects have resulted in Quasi’s hunchbacked, truncated appearance. Her shortened spine makes her body look disproportionally small compared to her normal sized head. Last year Quasi took second. Look for her on her media tour and appearance on Jimmy Fallon.
Is this the ugliest dog you’ve ever seen?
