Mr Happy Face wins the World's Ugliest Dog Competition in Petaluma, California.  Jeneda Benally entered her Chinese crested rescue pup into the iconic competition which returned after a two year absence due to the pandemic. Though there was some ruff and tough competition, Mr Happy Face proved a worthy winner with his wonky walk, protruding tongue and patchy fur. Clearly the much loved pet of Jeneda, she was delighted to accept the prestigious award and the prize money of $1500. She and Mr Happy Face will also fly to New York for an appearance on the Today Show.  After his win, Mr Happy face was wrapped in a blanket - it gets chilly when you don't have much fur! The World's Ugliest Dog competition celebrates adopting and rescuing pets, no matter of their physical appearance, proving that truly beauty comes from within.
