This strange pooch is hoping to be named Britain’s ugliest dog – but her owner insists she is beautiful.

She said: “We fell in love with her but at first I just felt a bit sorry for her.

“I am just a bit of a sucker for the underdog and for anything quirky and strange that other people maybe deem as not so attractive.

"I just have a bit of a soft spot for them.”

The half-pug, half-Chinese crest mix is one of seven dogs battling to be crowned the nation’s “most hideous” pooch.

The contest, organised by ParrotPrint.com, is offering a professional makeover and photo prize to the winning dog.

Holly, from Leven, East Yorks, said: “I personally don’t think she’s ugly.

“I know she’s quirky looking and she is not everybody’s cup of tea.

“Not everybody thinks she’s beautiful. We do, but I can appreciate why others don’t.

“People have said things like ‘how could you enter your dog? It’s so cruel."
