Martha, A Neapolitan Mastiff, Has Just Won The World Ugliest Dog Competition 2017

The competition at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California, was stiff. The old, blind, warty and hairless had all showed up to do their worst. But only one of them could emerge victorious, claiming the title of World’s Ugliest Dog.
Martha, a 125-pound Neapolitan mastiff, was the ‘gassy’ and droopy-eyed contestant who ended up clinching the top honor. She impressed the judges with her sweet nature, lumbering gait and dangly jowls that spread like melted butter on the stage whenever she’d plop down for a nap during the competition (which was often).
According to The New York Times, Martha snoozed and snored when the judges named her the winner. ‘Do you know you just won the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest?’ judge Kerry Sanders of NBC News asked of the sleepy pooch, per AP.
‘I’d gloat, but I need a nap’, Shirley Zindler, Martha’s handler, responded on her behalf.
Martha’s handler Shirley Zindler celebrates, while Martha snoozes. Martha won a cash prize of $1,500, as well as a trophy and a trip to New York City.
After Martha’s win was announced, the 3-year-old pooch quickly amassed a fan base on social media, some of whom weren’t too pleased with the ‘ugly’ in her title.
