STORY: "Mr. Happy Face" came all the way from Flagstaff, Arizona, with his owner, 48-year-old musician Jeneda Benally, who calls herself his emotional support human.
"It feels incredible that there's recognition of true inner beauty and that is just amazing. So I don't know that I feel like I've got the world's ugliest dog. I know I've got the world's most lovable dog," Benally said, adding that they believe he's 17 years old.
"Mr. Happy Face" blew away the judges and the crowd with his crooked head, gray mohawk, hairless, pimple-ridden body, awkward hobble, and snort-like breathing.
With the backing of the audience, he was the clear winner.
