World's Ugliest Dog of 2016 is a blind Chihuahua/Chinese Crested mix

World's Ugliest Dog of 2016 is a blind Chihuahua/Chinese Crested mix

The victor this year, 17-year-old Sweepee Rambo, who is blind in both eyes, stole the show and the audiences' attention. According to KBOI 2News, the dog's owner, Heather Wilson, describes him as a half-dachshund, half- "we think either Chinese Crested or Mexican Hairless Xoloitzcuintli".

SweePee's proud owner, Jason Wurtz, has taken her to work with him every day for the last 17 years.

The competition, which takes place as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair, is surprisingly competitive, and the "World's Ugliest" title has become a fiercely coveted one.

An aged lady now, she's blind in both eyes and wears doggie diapers.

$333M Mega Millions Results for Tuesday June 21
On the contrary, the jackpot has not been won for about three months now with the last victor getting $157 million on March 8. Based on its history, the biggest prize money the draw has ever given away was $656 million back in 2012.

The "World's Ugliest Dog" competition, held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif., honors "homely hounds" from all walks of life.

The champion, SweePee, was a four-pound pup and in much better shape when Jason Wurtz got her as a gift for his first wife.

Last year's top victor was Quasi Modo, a friendly dog whose appearance fits her name. Other competitors included Rascal Deux, the victor of two Ugly Dog contests with its "Einstein hair", and Himisaboo, a part-dachshund whose hairstyle has been compared to United States presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Himisaboo's blond combover hairstyle drew comparisons to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's 'do on Friday.
