SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The results are in and San Diego has a new ugly dog. Lily, the hairless Chihuahua, took the title at the 18th Annual Ugly Dog Contest.
She beat out Rascal, who had held the title for the past two years.
But no matter how many ugly dog titles a pooch wins, don't forget beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
"The dogs may appear ugly in the beginning, but they're not. They're beautiful inside. And everyone has so much fun just being out here. it's a wonderful day and it's all for charity," said Dane Andrew, Rascal's owner.
Sure, it's called the ugly dog contest but there are other categories as well, including best trick dog, the dog that looks most like its owner, and the most beautiful dog.
Money raised from the event will benefit Rady Children's Hospital.
