The ugliest dog for 2014 - level 2
The 2014 World’s Ugliest Dog Competition has its winner. His name is Peanut and he is from North Carolina in the USA.
The dog is small and he has a face of a tiny angry horse. He competed with dogs who were hairless, had warts, and one had no nose! However, Peanut was the ugliest one.
Like many dogs in the competition, Peanut’s owner saved him from a shelter. The competition gives her $1,500. She says that she will use the money to help other animals.
Difficult words: tiny (very small), wart (small hard raised part on somebody’s skin), shelter (business for animals who need help).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
