It’s not always that a bizarre or unappealing look is rewarded. Well, things are a lot different at the World’s Ugliest Dog contest. The uglier you are, the higher the chances of winning. And, this year’s winner is a lovely pup by the name of Scamp the Tramp.

We’ll tell you all about it and other viral stories in this article.

Pets: The Ugliest Dog That Won Everybody’s Hearts

Meet Scamp the Tramp, the ugliest dog in the world according to the competition that was held recently in California. But, don’t let his looks fool you – this pooch comes from a family of winners. 

When he is not competing in “beauty” shows, Scamp is busy working as a social therapy dog and reading dog for first graders. He is also greeting passengers at the Sonoma County Airport and representing the Humane Society of Sonoma County.

This may have been Scamp’s first win, but it’s the third for the family. His human, Yvonne Morones, had two more wacky looking dogs that won the Ugliest Dog Contest in previous years: Nana and Munchkin. They were both small, round, and with wild hair growing in patches all over their bodies. 

Looking Beyond One’s Appearance

The purpose of the Ugliest Dog Contest isn’t just to make us giggle, but also to raise awareness about dog rescue and adoption.

Yvonne Morones found Scamp in an animal rescue shelter and got him hours away from being put down. She named him Scamp the Tramp in honor of her grandmother who always kept saying that she should stay away from hobos and tramps on the street. Scamp was found wandering the streets of Compton, munching on Taco Bell wrappers.

Yvonne Morones says she will return next year too, but not as an attendee. She will be there to support friends.

As it turns out, the renowned rapper isn’t good only at writing rhymes and catching beats, but at cooking too. He published a cookbook and has a cooking show with Martha Stewart, so it’s safe to say that he knows what he’s doing. 

However, he took the internet by surprise when he confessed that he is using mayonnaise to make mashed potatoes feel and taste creamier than usual.
