The Top 10 Ugliest Dog Breeds in the World
Which Dogs Are the Ugliest?
There are many ugly dog breeds out there, but which are the ugliest dogs ever?
Here's the countdown of the top 10 ugliest dog breeds!
10. Bedlington Terrier
Believe it or not, the Bedlington Terrier's coat naturally grows in this bizarre formation, making this breed one of the ugliest types of dogs.
Borzoi, a member of the sighthound family, are not only one of the tallest breed of dogs, but are also one of the ugliest. It's needless to say that Borzoi are quite bizarre-looking canines.
8. Caucasian Mountain Dog
Like the Borzoi, Caucasian Mountain Dogs are one of the tallest and ugliest breeds. It's like the Chow Chow's oversized and obese cousin.
7. Irish Wolfhound
Irish Wolfhounds are sighthounds which, on average, are the tallest breeds, but they're also without a doubt one of the ugliest.
6. English Bull Terrier
English Bull Terriers are the dogs that are well-known for having egg-shaped heads (as well as for being the brand dog for Target stores).
I think that all dogs are cute in some manner, including English Bull Terriers, but that doesn't mean that they can't be ugly in another sense, too. Looking at this picture, I question whether or not this is, in fact, some alien species instead of an actual dog breed.
5. The Puli
This Hungarian dog breed, the Puli, is an animal that seems to have dreadlocks. Personally, I prefer for my dog to look like a dog rather than a pile of hair.
4. The Komondor
Just like Puli, Komondors are an ugly breed that have matted dreadlocks. Generally, though, Pulis are black and Komondors are white, which is why Komondors are often referred to as "mop dogs."
3. Neapolitan Mastiff
Neapolitan Mastiffs resemble a mixture of an English Mastiff, Bloodhound, and Shar Pei gone terribly wrong, which is the obvious reason why they are included on this list.
2. The Mexican Hairless
Just look at the photo: Mexican Hairless dogs are definitely atrocious with their uneven, splotchy skin and their dingy, patchy hair. If any dog deserves to be on this list, it's the Mexican Hairless.
Personally, I think that this is the ugliest photo in the whole bunch, but on average I would consider the Mexican Hairless to be the second worst-looking breed.
1. Chinese Crested
First place goes to the Chinese Crested. If any individual dog is famous for ugliness, it's this one. Personality certainly makes a dog adorable, but if they were only rated on their physical appearance, the Chinese Crested would win (or lose, depending on how you look at it). I mean, there isn't one attractive thing about this dog.
Of some breeds (like Pugs) it is said, "They're so ugly that it makes them cute." And when it comes to Pugs, yes they are, in a way, ugly-cute, but the Chinese Crested is in no way so-ugly-it's-cute: It's just straight-up ugly.
