Tennessee Ugliest Dog contender Miss Ellie was another of those jaw-deformed, missing front teeth, tongue-lolling Chinese Cresteds that dominate the veritable world olympics of canine ugliness held annually in northern California year after year.
She took first place in 2009, but would not long bask in the glory of her looks. But even before her final crowning achievement, Miss Ellie was famous for her looks, and was a classy little fund-raiser for the Humane Society in Tennessee.
Ellie attended her owner Dawn Goehring's wedding. She said her husband-to-be fell in love with Ellie "before he fell in love with me!" In the middle photo, Ellie's ten, with a bow in her hair to pretty her up. She died in June 2010 at the age of seventeen.
