(CNN) This contest isn’t about beauty. Instead, these four-legged dynamos compete on their lack of cuteness all in an effort to win the title of World’s Ugliest Dog. The competition was ruff — 19 dogs battled it out for the crown before a winner was selected on Friday at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds & Event Center in Petaluma, California. This year’s winner — Scamp the Tramp — is a former stray with a messy mane that “no amount of conditioner can calm,” according to his official biography, which features a picture of the pooch with his tongue extended and unruly tresses covering one of his eyes. His owner, Yvonne Morones, said that she rescued Scamp at the “last hour” from a Los Angeles animal shelter and has no regrets about the way it’s all turned out.
