PETALUMA, Ca. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Scamp the Tramp brings new meaning to the phrase "a face only a mother could love," but under that rough exterior is a heart of gold.
Scamp is officially the world's ugliest dog after taking home the top prize at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California.
The bug-eyed pooch was rescued off the streets of Compton three years ago.
He now spends his days visiting senior citizen centers and schools.
Scamp's owner won a giant trophy, $15,000, and a donation of the same amount to an animal shelter.
