I'll say what we're all thinking. Ugly dogs: the 10 ugliest dog breeds

Which Dogs Are the Ugliest?

There are a number of ugly dog breeds out there, but which are the ugliest dogs ever?

Here's the countdown of the top 10 ugliest dog breeds!

Bedlington Terrier

Bedlington Terrier

10. Bedlington Terrier

Believe it or not, the Bedlington Terrier's coat doesn't naturally grow in this bizarre formation, but for the many people who force their dogs to display this atrocious hairstyle, they are making their Bedlington Terriers one of the least attractive dogs to look at.



9. Borzoi

Borzoi, a member of the sighthound family, are not only one of the tallest breeds of dogs, but they are also one of the ugliest dogs. It's needless to say that Borzoi are quite bizarre-looking canines.

Caucasian Mountain Dog

Caucasian Mountain Dog

8. Caucasian Mountain Dog

The Caucasian Mountain Dogs are one of the tallest and ugliest breeds. It's like the Chow Chow's oversized and obese cousin.

Irish Wolfhound

Irish Wolfhound

7. Irish Wolfhound

Irish Wolfhounds are sighthounds, which, on average, are the tallest breeds. They're also, without a doubt, one of the ugliest.

English Bull Terrier

English Bull Terrier

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.

The Puli

5. The Puli

This Hungarian dog breed seems to have dreadlocks. Like many people, I prefer for my dog to look like a dog rather than a huge pile of hair. If it weren't for their atrocious dreadlocks, these dogs would be a whole lot of cute canine.

The Komondor

The Komondor

4. The Komondor

Just like Puli, Komondors are an ugly breed that has matted dreadlocks. Generally, though, Pulis are black and Komondors are white. This is why Komondors are often referred to as "mop dogs."

Neapolitan Mastiff

Neapolitan Mastiff

3. Neapolitan Mastiff

Neapolitan Mastiffs resemble a mixture of an English Mastiff, Bloodhound, and a Shar-Pei gone terribly wrong and inbred. This is the obvious reason why they are included on this list of the top 10 ugliest dogs.

The Mexican Hairless

The Mexican Hairless

2. The Mexican Hairless

Just look at the photo above—Mexican Hairless dogs are definitely an eyeful with their uneven, splotchy skin and their dingy, patchy hair. If any dog deserves to be on this list, it's the Mexican Hairless.

Perhaps this is the ugliest photo in the whole bunch, but on average, many people would consider the Mexican Hairless to be the second worst-looking breed when compared to the half hairless versions of the dog breed ranking number one as the world's ugliest breed of dog.

The Chinese Crested

The Chinese Crested

1. The 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 for many people, the Chinese Crested is in no way so ugly it's cute; many people would claim that the Chinese Crested is just a straight-up ugly dog.

If it weren't for the fact that dogs usually have great personalities and how they are man's best friend, it would be hard for many individuals to find these odd-looking pooches adorable. But in the end, isn't it the personality that truly makes the dog? All in all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

anonimoose on September 02, 2020:

Wow, I think that all these dogs are very cute and no dog is ugly. Don't state your opinion as fact though, that's a sin. (I'm joking about the sin but please don't state a opinion as a fact.)

frank on August 29, 2020:

WOW these dogs r ugly and wrinkly

Ethan on August 25, 2020:

“ I chose to write about dogs. They are magnificent and deserve a good home!”

....The irony of that being what your bio says is HILARIOUSLY ridiculous. The only thing ugly here is your childish nonsense.

Jazzy on August 19, 2020:

Bullys aka Walters breed r amazing I have one

tstanley74 on August 16, 2020:

How rude, all dogs are cute in their own way.

sally wilkin on August 04, 2020:

This is the meanest thing ever

Dudeman on August 01, 2020:

Pitbulls and any other bully breed shoyld have been on here. Demonic ugly dogs.

Danielalovesdogs01 on July 29, 2020:

I only agree with #2 and #10 tho. The rest of the dogs in this list are ADORABLE AF. How dare you call a Borzoi “ugly”? They’re beautiful dogs!! Wtf is wrong with....whoever created this blog? Also, stop disrespecting dogs! Okay? Borzois and Mop Dogs are my favorites here. They’re so cute!!

Pp man 420 on June 12, 2020:

Walter is the vest thing ever made

Joe on June 12, 2020:

Who came here from TikTok

Abayo on June 12, 2020:

Jeez wtf, thats not true

Gwayth on June 10, 2020:

These are all based off of hairstyles... Not the dog itself. If you took the extra fur off of the first four they would look fine. I'm sure if you just shaved the Puli and Komondor they would look like an average dog.

walterlover43 on June 09, 2020:

looks like you accidentally put walter on here... don't worry! just a little mistake!!! no big deal!!!

? on June 09, 2020:

Man you hating

If you labeled the article “most bizarre looking dogs” or somethin’ like that people wouldn’t be mad, cause right now everyone is losing there sh**. unless if this is a joke and we are all overreacting

Samantha on May 30, 2020:

The people who made this is rude. I forgot who said this down in the comments but like they said, u probably choose bad pics. BTW whoever made this has no heart.

Mikayla on May 29, 2020:

Dude. This is just sad...

A Komondor is my dream dog. Don’t call them ugly. All dogs are cute you just chose bad photos....probably on purpose...smh.
