5 Contenders for the Ugliest Dog Breed

Dog is one of the most common pets around the world. In fact, dogs are called as “Man’s best friend”. People love dogs for a variety of reasons: They’re loyal, playful and usually very cute. But man’s best friend isn’t always the best-looking animal.

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

Here’s the countdown of the top 5 ugliest dog breeds!


5. English Bull Terrier

These dogs that are well-known for having egg-shaped heads.


4. Komondor

This breed is known for its matted dreadlocks that range from 9 to 12 inches long. Komondors are often referred to as “mop dogs.”


3. Peruvian Hairless

This breed has coarse and irregular wisps of hair on its body and a short hair on top of it’s head. This Dog pre-dates the Inca Empire and that a fondness for ugly dog breeds is nothing new.


2. Whippet

With its disproportionately small head and lanky body this breed reminds us of an awkward teenager.


1. Chinese Crested

The number 1 spot goes to the Chinese Crested. If any individual dog is famous for ugliness, it’s this one. These dogs may lack fur on their bodies, but they possess tufts of silky and flowing fur on their head, paws, and tail. The overall effect is a wacky and wild appearance that makes the dog so ugly, it’s cute.



These dogs are all ugly in their own way, and we determined our list based on a thoroughly unscientific process. Ugly dogs can be just as sweet, devoted, and fun-loving as good-looking ones. In fact, maybe that’s why people are drawn to ugly dogs in the first place – because they prove what Mom always told us, that it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
