The Top 10 Ugliest Dog Breeds in the World

Updated on May 29, 2019

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

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!

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.

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.

7. Irish Wolfhound

Irish Wolfhounds are sighthounds, which, on average, are the tallest breeds. 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 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 wasn't for their atrocious dreadlocks, these dogs would be a whole lot of cute canine.

4. The Komondor

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

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.

2. The Mexican Hairless

Just look at the photo; 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.

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 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 wasn'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.

      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.
