It’s a fact: Elwood was ugly. And he was loved.
Now, he’s gone.
Karen Quigley said her Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix that shot to national prominence after winning the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest in 2007, had died.
He was a Chihuahua mix who later became the character of a children’s book.
His owner says she does not know his cause of death, but he died peacefully in her arms on Thanksgiving.
