Dog Vying For Title Of World's Ugliest Pooch Resembles Donald Trump

A tiny little Chihuahua mix named SweePee has been crowned World's Ugliest Dog.

Seventeen years old, blind and decidedly tough to look at, SweePee Rambo swept the annual competition in Petaluma, California.

The fan favorite at Friday's competition, SweePee competed for the honor for two years before finally getting her due.

SweePee's owner, Jason Wurtz of Encino, California, calls the part Chinese Crested, part Chihuahua pooch "a ride or die chick."

"I enjoyed riding with him on his Honda CBR 929 RR until he totaled it luckily leaving me home on this rare occasion," SweePee's Sonoma-Marin Fair bio reads. "I escaped danger alongside with him swimming the riverbanks and surviving, not bad for a 4 pound female.

"Now that I'm slowing down from old age and am blind in both eyes and wear doggie depends. I am so lucky to have a dad to take good care of me."

Wurtz, who initially gave SweePee to his ex wife as a gift before she gave her back because she's so ugly, $1,500 and a six-foot trophy.

SweePee beat out 15 dogs to take the top prize. Among her competition was another Chinese crested mix--this one part dachshund--who has a comb-over hairdo that looks strikingly like Donald Trump's.

In a statement, Sonoma-Marin Fair CEO Erin Post said "We're proud to celebrate all dogs and pets by showing that no matter their imperfections, they are adoptable, lovable and a great add to any family."

The fair has played host to the competition for the last 28 years.
