England's Ugliest Dog Finds a Home for the Holidays

Everyone says they want to be home for the holidays, but for homeless animals, this wish is often an impossible dream. Fortunately for Ug, who just might be the ugliest pup in Britain, Christmas came early this year when he was adopted from the Mayflower animal sanctuary.

When cafe employee April Parker saw Ug on the sanctuary's website, she immediately fell in love. The mother of two brought him home to her two daughters, who added a couple letters to his name. While Doug the pointer mix may have cost the Parker family over $300, they all say he was worth every penny: "He has a fantastic temperament and is really loving."

Only time will tell if the family enters Doug into the World's Ugliest Dog contest in June, but I'd say he has a pretty good shot at the title.
