Elwood, the eight-year-old Chihuahua/Chinese crested mix who won the title of World’s Ugliest Dog in 2007, passed away this weekend. According to his owner, Karen Quigley, the perpetually unimpressed-looking pooch died unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Day. Though he has been experiencing some health problems, he was seemingly doing well. Elwood was lucky to have Quigley as his owner; she adopted him at nine-months-old, saving him from being euthanized because the breeder though he was “too ugly” to sell. Sob! After winning the coveted title of World’s Ugliest Dog, Elwood went on to become the focus of a children’s book teaching acceptance and appeared at over 200 events raising money for animal rescue groups and nonprofit organizations. ”He made people smile, he made them laugh and feel good. It was wonderful,” Quigley said. “He will truly be missed.” RIP Elwood! [NBC New York]
