Meet the contestants of the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. The 25th annual contest ran at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California, on Friday, June 21. Walle, a four-year-old mutt from Chico, Calif., won the title and $1,500.

"This dog looked like he's been photo-shopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals," judge Brian Sobel said, according to The Canadian Press.


Walle, a mix of beagle, boxer and basset hound, was entered at the last minute. Check out his formidable competition in the photos below.
