This year's World's Ugliest Dog competition has found a victor, with a scruffy little pooch named Scamp the Tramp taking home the 2019 honours at the annual contest, held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California.

The annual competition showcases some of the world's most peculiar looking pooches, with crossed eyes, patches of hair loss, crooked teeth and squashed faces on display and in demand.

Scamp the Tramp's looks have made him a victor - but it wasn't a beauty contest.

Scamp the Tramp is held by Darlene Wright.

"He rode home with me in the auto, and all the way home he sat next to me", Morones said.

"He's Scamp the Champ, no longer Scamp the Tramp", Morones told the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat after the victory.

Yvonne discovered Scamp on Pet Finder and immediately melted. The song "One Love" by Bob Marley came on the radio, and Morones said she looked over to Scamp, who with his dreadlocks, was bobbing his head.

Scamp beat out 18 other dogs for the honor.

But the competition isn't skin deep, organisers say it is a way of bringing attention to the plight of rescue dogs. At left is Kerry Sanders, one of the judges.

Nineteen contestants featuring droopy tongues, bowed legs, perpetually confused looks and other odd attributes are going nose-to-nose in the annual competition Friday, June 21, 2109.

It's not the first time Scamp has been in the competition - he came second a year ago to Zsa Zsa, who has sadly passed away since.
