The ugliest dog - level 2

The ugliest dog - level 2

03-07-2013 14:00

There are all kinds of contests. This one in California was about finding the world's ugliest dog.

The winner who was uglier than 29 other dogs was a four-year-old dog. He is a mix of four kinds of dogs. He's got a slightly oversized head and a humpback. Somebody even said that he looked like he was photoshoped from other dogs.

The prize of $1,500 was given to his owner. She said that she would buy something for the dog and then go to New York.

Interesting words: contest (situation when people want to know what/who is the best/worst at something), humpback (round back), photoshop (do something in Photoshop - a picture editing software).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
