Petaluma, California, June 26, 2009--Meet Miss Ellie, a 15-year-old Chinese crested hairless that was named the World's Ugliest Dog in the purebred category at the Sonoma-Marin Fair.

Though Chinese cresteds usually emerge as top dogs at the annual event, in 2009 a four-year-old boxer mix named Pabst (not pictured) rallied to win the overall title in a surprise upset, according to the Los Angeles Times.
