PETALUMA, CA – A 2-year-old toothy-looking white and brown mutt named Peanut, who is believed to be a Chihuahua and shih-tzu mix, has won the annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest in Petaluma, CA.

But Peanut’s looks aren’t solely due to genetics. The poor pooch was abused by a previous owner and burned in a fire.

“He doesn’t’ have lips anymore, his eyelids are also gone, so he can’t close his eyes, so his eyes water, the tears drain into his nose and make snot bubbles, that adds to his character,” says his new owner.

In addition to a four-foot trophy, Peanut and his owner won $1500.

Which his owner plans on donating to fund other pets’ vet bills and raise awareness about animal abuse.

Now that’s pretty beautiful.
