11 Fabulous photos from this year's World's Ugliest Dog contest

If you're a dog lover, you'll know that pooches are simply the best in any shape or size. Indeed, they can have missing teeth, bug eyes, large heads, droopy tongues or whatever else, and we will still absolutely adore them from head to toe.

This is exactly what the World's Ugliest Dog contest is all about. Each year, the competition lines up the most hideous pups and crowns one winner to bring attention to the needs of rescue dogs. Every dog is beautiful (even if they're ridiculously ugly) and every single dog out there deserves a good home. With this in mind, let's take a look at this year's loveable contestants - don't forget to scroll all the way to the bottom to find out who won!
