There’s nothing like coming together to celebrate ugly dogs, even when said ugly dogs are so weird looking it’s actually cute.

 

Walle, a 4-year-old mutt from Chico, Calif., was crowned the winter of the 25th annual World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. While a little strange looking, Walle is definitely not ugly. He’s a mix of beagle, boxer and basset hound and actually quite charming.

 

“This dog looked like he’s been photo-shopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals,” judge Brian Sobel said in explaining Walle’s win.

 

Walle’s owner Tammie Barbee said people always comment on how the dog “is not right … but I love him anyway.”
