The winner of the 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest went to 4-year-old mutt Walle. The Associated Press reports that the mix of beagle, boxer and basset hound from Chico, California was declared the "World's Ugliest Dog" on Friday.

Walle beat out 29 other dogs in the Northern California competition in part because he has a "bizarre waddle of a walk" according to the AP report. Despite being named the “World’s Ugliest Dog,” Walle's owner Tammie Barbee said she loves him. It probably doesn’t hurt that his title of “World’s Ugliest Dog” comes with a $1,500 prize along with appearances on NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
