It's that time of the year again when the world's ugliest dog gets crowned. I know most dog lovers will say that there is no such thing as an ugly dog, but in this case, I'll have to disagree. However, the love he and his owner have for each other is the most beautiful thing you'll see all day.

Jeneda Benally adopted Mr. Happy Face (yes, that is his name) because he ran right up to her at the shelter and chose her to be his dog mama. Jeneda said that despite his challenging appearance he was the happiest living thing she had ever seen. Now Mr. Happy Face is world-famous and $1,500 dollars richer.

Mr. Happy Face came from a troubled past. He was the victim of living in a hoarder home and he was grossly neglected. Once Jeneda saved him she knew he was destined for great things even though he is an old pup at 17. Lots of people are curious of his breed.  Mr. Happy Face is a hairless Chinese crested-Chihuahua mix.

Jeneda vowed to give him the life he deserves after going through such a rough start. He is treated like a prince and now the world knows his name. $1,500 buys a lot of dog treats, eat up my friend, you are fabulous!
