A gentle giant named Martha has been crowned the winner of the 29th annual World’s Ugliest Dog Contest.

The Neapolitan Mastiff was a favorite of the Northern California crowd from the start. She seemed to play up to the crowd, often plopping down on her side on stage with her droopy face spread across the ground.

As the winning dog she went away $1,500, a flashy trophy and a trip to New York for media appearances.

Martha was rescued when she was nearly blind, but after several surgeries can see again, according to her handler Shirley Zindler.

She beat out 13 other dogs.

Moe, a 16-year-old Brussels Griffon-pug mix who was the oldest in the competition, came in second. While Chase, a 14-year-old Chinese Crested-Harke mix, came in third.

The contestants were judged on first impressions, unusual attributes, personality and audience reaction.

  12. Just because you comment on their features doesn’t mean that you are dissing them

  13. who ever write this is wrong and offensive to dogs i love all dogs and don’t judge a book by it’s cover

  14. Umm, can we talk about how the dog doesn’t actually care wether he or she is called “ugly”?
    The dogs probably all got treats after it and thats really all they care about. Plus the owners knew they might get some slack for entering their dogs in this contest but hey, if your going to do something, you might as well be the best.

  15. Every dog is special, I feel sad for all those dogs that were called ugly. They all have something special about them. Let’s say one dog may be called ugly but it is so caring and kind. 🙁

  16. thats sad those dogs where called ugly. i think all dogs look different on the outside but all the same on the inside.☹

  17. It’s interesting that there are competions for ugly animals, but I question why Martha is the ugliest. She looks so gentle

  18. That’s so sad why would you call dogs ugly that’s a cute and loving pet that is always there for you they don’t deserve to be called ugly.
