No dog owner will ever admit that their dog could possibly be ugly. To most, there is nothing more pure on this earth than man’s best friend. Yet, there is a whole world that revolves around ‘ugly dog breeds’, there is even a competition for it.
We’ve rounded up some possible contenders for the ugly dog breed category but, we’re not sure there is anything ugly about these good boys (and girls):
1. The Chinese Crested
With silky soft skin and golden tumbling locks, the Chinese Crested just might steal your heart – thanks to its ugly cuteness. Known for being hairless practically everywhere but their head, these sweet angels tend to get mocked and are known for being ‘ugly’. Yet you’ll find that Chinese Crested dogs are one of the lowest maintenance, loyal and playful breeds.
2. The Neapolitan Mastiff
If there is one breed of dogs that will catch your eye, it’ll be the Neapolitan Mastiff. These big and adorably wrinkly dogs can be rejected for being far from small and fluffy. The thing is, Neapolitan Mastiffs are full of fun and love nothing more than laze around and have a good snuggle. If you’re able to look past a bit of drool and have the time for a bigger dog, consider these good boys to be your next partner in crime.
3. The English Bulldog
The English Bulldog is just as well known in England as the Queen. Despite being on the shorter and stockier side, with a face you could just squish with love, the English Bulldog has not become an icon for no reason. This breed is as mellow as you can get, meaning you won’t have to rush out of bed in the morning because this bulldog will be snoozing (maybe a bit loudly) with you. If you are willing to put in the time to this glorious breed, you’ll have a friend for life.
4. The Shar Pei
This breed is as beautiful and one of a kind as its name. While people may judge the Shar Pei breed in being the wrinkliest of them all (which is frankly adorable), these attentive, protective and loving dogs have been around since the ancient days. There is a reason why us humans have loved and cared for them for so long and it’s not because we think they are ugly.
5. The Komondor
You may hear that people describe a dog as ‘a walking carpet’, in which case, they are most likely talking about the glorious Komondor. A ancient breed that can give you some serious fusses as well as protect you from any bumps in the night. The Komondor is always going to be by your side and hey, who needs a blanket when you can just cuddle a Komondor.
In reality, there is no such thing as an ugly dog because that would insinuate that our furry friends are less than perfect which just is not acceptable. Still, no matter what the world says about your best friend, make sure to keep them well looked after, we have everything you need right here.
