Congratulations to Walle, the winner of the 2013 Ugly Dog Contest!  Wallee is a 4-year-old mutt from Chico, California. He's a huge-headed, duck-footed mix of beagle, boxer and basset hound and apparently not much to look at as he was named the winner at the 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest over the weekend. He competed against 30 other dogs and was a last minute entry at the Northern California competition. Judge Brian Sobel explained why Wallee won saying, "This dog looked like he's been photo-shopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals!" Owner Tammie Barbee got Wallee when he was three months old and said, "People come up to me and say that dog is not right. But I love him." Walle wins $1,500 and will make several network TV appearances next week, including NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds gets worldwide attention, with media from around the world traveling to Petaluma, about 40 miles north of San Francisco
