Tater Tot, a Chinese Crested/Chihuahua mix, was the longtime girlfriend of a much more famously ugly Chinese crested named Sam, whom she outlived.
By age fourteen (in 2006) Tater had thrice won the national ugly dog contest in the "mixed breed" category. But unlike horrifyingly ugly Sam, she was never been lucky enough to win the prime award as World's Ugliest Dog of the Year, perhaps because she was actually kind of attractive, despite the poor eyes, bad legs, and humped spine.
In her old age she weighed a scant four and a half pounds, having been runt of the litter. She was always a little fragile and and puppyish. [Two of these photos are by photographer and performance artist Shawn 3Quartermoon who currently lives in Tucson, Arizona.]
