Even “The World's Ugliest Dog” is not safe from computer hackers.
Rascal was the recent victim of computer hackers when he lost around 45,000 votes taking him from soon catching up into 1st place to around 2,600 votes during an online Ugly Dog contest sponsored by the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California. Some votes were reinstated, but poor Rascal then had to suffer an unfair defeat for the online contest, not to be confused with the actual live ugly dog contest to come. Life gets worse than just being ugly, even for Rascal.
Here is some info on Rascal, “The World’s Ugliest Dog”.
Rascal, the only living and competing Ugly dog to hold the coveted "Ring of Champions" title which makes him the current "World's Ugliest Dog." Rascal originally won the contest held at the Sonoma Marin Fair grounds.
Rascal is a very healthy 7.lb 8 years old pure bred Chinese Crested. He is NOT shaved; he is naturally and completely hairless except for his Mohawk and a little hair on his tail and feet. He is complete with ugly dog warts and freckles. Rascal has a lack of teeth, so he can’t keep his tongue in his mouth, and his face appears crooked at times.
Owned by Actor, Dane Andrew of Sunnyvale, Ca. USA, Rascal is Ugly Dog Royalty being from a dynasty of ugly with his Mom, Grandmother, and Grandfather all who have held the title of "The World's Ugliest Dog." Rascals Grandfather "Chi Chi" is in the Guinness Book of World Records for winning the most ugly dog contests and was undefeated with 7 ugly dog wins. He may be the only dog along with Rascal’s Mom “Mai Tai” to receive a Mayoral proclamation.
Some people are calling him a Space Alien, and even nicknamed, “Hairless Potter”, but to Andrew, he is just a loving little family member.
Rascal was ugly enough that Jay Leno had him on the NBC Tonight Show before he had ever even won his 2002 title, since then he has done several more TV shows and has been cast in 3 horror movies, one with the Scream Queen, Brinke Stevens. See http://www.tele-zombie.com , “The Last Nightmare”, and a cameo in the new film “Carma” That stars Oscar nominee, Karen Black.
Rascal is now an official actor with a listing on http://www.IMDB.com
Also see -- http://www.ugliestdogs.net/worldsugliestdog.html for more photos of Rascal.
Rascal may be considered ugly in the dog world, but Josie, an orphaned kitten who now lives with Rascal, thinks he’s the most handsome. The little kitty just adorers her new K-9 Boyfriend, but Rascal is a bit shy to admit his Bitch is a cat.
Rascal has a cartoon strip on the way, called “The Ugliest Dog”.
"I have many more photos of Rascal on Jay Leno, Carson Daly, with celebrities like Donald Trump, and Jenny McCarthy," Andrew said. "I have video clips from some of his movie work, his win, his Tonight show, Carson Daly, and Jane Pauley show clips. The footage is all broadcast quality and clear to use. The photos are high resolution jpeg images."
