This sad little collection of bones and teeth is Peanut, the new holder of the esteemed World's Ugliest Dog title. There's a grim tragedy behind his appearance, though, so he's actually cheating a bit.
Owner Holly Chandler found Peanut at a rescue centre, where he was taken in after a hideous previous owner actually tried to set him on fire. Hence the bald patches and the googly eyes caused by the burns. Holly is using the $1,500 prize money to pay the vet bills of other unfortunate animals. [Sky]
