There are plenty of ugly dogs out there and they all deserve our love! While they might not be the finest examples of the canine family but they certainly are a blast to look at as they often fill us with wonder. Ugly dogs will make you question how such a thing came into existence. Most are funny breeds who simply look ridiculous by their nature but other dogs are mixes that look like a mad scientist created these pups into a strange existence.
People love ugly dogs so much that there is a World’s Ugliest Dog contest held annually. It’s happening this year in June, so we decided to get ahead of the competition and share some with you. From Brussels Griffons to Xoloitzcuintles, we’re bringing you some of the funniest-looking fur babies on the planet. These dogs come in a variety of shapes and sizes and show a certain variety of ugly that you don’t often encounter. Take a look and get a laugh at these ugly dogs who are so hideous, they are cute. Keep reading after you get through these ugly dogs and we’ll treat you to some funny ones as well.
Feast Your Eyes on Some Really Ugly Dogs Below:
One of the perennial favorite ugly dogs comes from the Brussels Griffon breed. These sort of wiry dogs have flat faces and unruly fur. Aren’t they cute? As the name implies, these dogs originated in Brussels, Belgium and they have taken the world by storm. These little devils are kicking off this list but they are not the last you will see of this breed!
The Italian Greyhound is an Italian breed of small sighthound. Although they may look very thin and delicate, these hounds are very strong and hardy animals. The one pictured above has a smile to die for! This kind of dog was bred to hunt rabbits and other small prey so they have developed slender bodies that allow them to burst into 37MPH bursts. That’s one fast dog!
Some Pekingese are extremely cute. This one, however, we count among ugly dogs. Pekingese originated in China and was favored by the royalty of the Chinese Imperial court as both a lap dog and companion dog. These dogs are easy to love and make for great, gentle pets. This one has an extra-long tongue that’s likely to turn some away but we’re sure this pup is a perfectly good pal.
Chinese Crested – Almost Hairless
In our opinion, Chinese Crested dogs are one of the ugliest breeds of dogs on the planet. Some have hair while others are hairless and still more have a combination of fur and no fur. The fur pattern on these dogs is just so unfortunate. However, they do make excellent pets and have plenty of spunk. They’re not much to look at but you will fall in love nevertheless.
The Xoloitzcuintle, also called Xolo for short, is a breed of Mexican hairless dog that includes other hairless dogs from Southern and Central America. They have a storied history but they sure aren’t much to look at. In fact, we think Xolos are the kings of the ugly dogs. Hair typically sprouts, thinly, from around the ears and paws. These dogs are fiercely protective of their owners and will quickly become your best friend.
The Poof Part I
We have no earthly clue what breed this cotton ball poof of a dog is. It’s so poofy you can barely catch a face in there. Those dark, sparkling eyes are cute but we can’t see beyond the fur for much else. This dog is so outrageous looking we had to share another picture of it from the side with you. You’re not going to believe it.
The Poof Part II
Look at those stubby, little legs! This dog looks 100% fake. Was it produced in a secret Disney lab for pets? How did it get so much poof? Is it part sheep? We have so many questions and no answers when it comes to this radical-looking ugly dog.
The Peruvian hairless dog is part of Peru’s history and cultural heritage. These dogs are also called Incan dogs because they were bred and kept as pets by the ancient civilization. These ugly dogs have been used for generations as a source of heat, like a hot-water bottle. Their bodies radiate heat which brings comfort to their owners. The only question is: do you want to snuggle up with this hottie?
Well, here’s another Xolo and it will haunt your dreams. Even if you’re not religious, it might be worth saying a little prayer for this dog. While we are certain this dog is capable of companionship, it really looks like it ought to be left alone. That’s the thing with ugly dogs, they need love too. You just have to learn to see the goodness in them, even if that means turning out your lights.
Call the exorcist! Take a look at the coat that little spikey hairs that stick out from the rest. Once you get over the weird fur, we’ve got one heck of a face to discuss. There is an issue with this dog’s face. The left side seems to have been injured with the mouth all twisted and the eye with a glossy white lens. It’s hard out there for ugly dogs like this, so treat them well, folks!
Pekingese Part II
We meet another Pekingese in the above image that finds a pet with one truly unruly coat. Seriously, that fur is all over the place. The flat face and bulging eyes only add this unruly mix of features. Despite this dog looking like a walking definition of chaos, we imagine it’s one of the ugly dogs that has a beautiful personality. We’re sure you’d be fast friends.
Meet this snow-white Chihuahua puppy that’s a little bit tired. Do you think this is one of the ugly dogs or is it so ugly it’s cute? We think it straddles the divide between ugly and cute in the best way possible but we must say that coat could be a little thicker. Also, this guy looks like he’s in a state of eternal sleepiness.
A Chunky Mix
Here’s another mix and the owner is not entirely sure what all sorts of dog breeds are mixed up here. This dog almost looks like a mini gorilla. It also appears that it needs a diet. We’re not here to shame any dog but this one is rather portly. We’ve got the “bat ears” again on this one with a pretty gnarly underbite as well. We’re certain he’s a very good boy but he definitely does not look too happy. Cheer up, pal!
Chihuahua-Shih Tzu Mix
It’s the eyes and the underbite for us. This dog almost looks like a Gremlin but he’s a touch too cute for that descriptor. Here’s another one of the strange Chihuahua mixes. This time there’s a Shih Tzu involved. The result is a handsome coat but not much else. Do you think this little pal can hear really well? We hope those ears are worth it.
Frug (French Bulldog + Pug)
Warts and all! Here we find a French Bulldog/Pug mix. These ugly dogs are known lovingly as Frugs. The owner who shared this image joked, “Just when I thought I couldn’t get any more beautiful…” The comment was a reference to the wart which has since been removed. Honestly, things could be worse.
Shih Tzu Mix
Here’s another one of the weird Shih Tzu mixes and we’re not sure what the other breed is! We’ve never seen a dog quite like this. It looks like it’s got the body of a Spaniel and the head of a Shih Tzu. It’s a really strange mix that looks like the head and body don’t match. One of our favorite features on this dog are those adorable googly eyes.
Boxers are such sweet, loving companions. Unfortunately, they are not much to look at. These dogs are notorious for their big, hanging jowls and we’ve got another example to show you as this list continues. Those sweet, bug eyes seem to pierce the soul.
Boxer Part II
As promised, here’s another boxer that’s got those really impressive jowls. There’s a bit of a potbelly situation happening here but this pup might be going through something. The eyes are deep-set which gives this dog a look of being tired. There are uglier dogs on this list but we felt this one deserved to be here as well.
The Chihuahua mixes of the world produce some of the weirdest dogs. This Chihuahua mixed with a Yorkie resulted in quite a pup. He looks sort of like a gangly fox. Although this dog has a face for radio, we can see why a pet parent would fall in love. What a mix!
Another Remarkable Chihuahua
Here’s a Chihuahua that has long hair that looks nice but there’s a little lacking in the mouth department. We find an extremely tongue hanging from this dog’s mouth as he has a rather weak lower jaw. It’s kind of cool if you’re into the dog version of KISS but it looks rather odd to us. What do you think?
Does this Chihuahua mix need to turn that frown upside down? Why so sad? This is one of the ugly dogs that has what we like to call “bat ears.” The somewhat pokey, somewhat floppy ears look like bat wings and his little face doesn’t help that much. The mix here has resulted in a dog with longer legs than a typical Chihuahua and they look surreal.
In general, most people find French bulldogs cute. That makes them some of the exclusive and expensive dog breeds around the world today. However, if you take a step back, you will notice that they are rather ugly dogs. Granted: they are the cute kind of ugly. They have massive heads in relation to their bodies and bulging eyes with long ears. Their stubbly, little legs carry them around and it’s not hard to understand why the world is obsessed with these creatures.
Here’s a hairless Chihuahua that has ears so thin that they’re just about transparent. In addition to those weird ears, there are some markings on the skin which look rather curious. This dog’s face looks as if it’s in a permanent scowl which is some sort of “resting B face” for dogs. If you’re not afraid of wrinkles, you know this is probably a nice dog to pet.
Here’s a pug. It looks like it has seen better days. That underbite is something serious and the flatness of the other features make it stand out even more. Pugs are one of the ugly dog breeds out there that people have been obsessed with for generations. These ugly dogs originated in China and are known for their facial wrinkles and back rolls.
A Little Mix
Here’s a mix that is likely some form of a French bulldog. It’s got a massive head relative to its tiny body with razor-sharp teeth that look like they could really chomp into you like little needles. It’s the crooked smile for us but also that huge head that’s complete with some wrinkles between those floppy ears. Would you take him home?
Another Shih Tzu Mix
Here’s another Shih Tzu mix that looks like it has a bone to pick with you. It has such a goofy face with the most unruly coat. Imagine having a bad hair day for the rest of your life. Not cute! This is yet another one of the ugly dogs with some serious chompers. We still would like to give this pup a pet.
Do these ears make this dog look ugly or cute? We wonder if this dog ran really fast and jumped if they’d take flight. This appears to be a Chihuahua and Yorkie mix. Those ears are something else but if you can get past them, we’re certain you two would become friends.
Brussels Griffon Part II
How is this dog even real? This looks like a Muppet. We find some floppy ears above a face that contains two eyes that are far too large for it. We find some messy fir that frames the blunt nose. Also, this dog has little stick legs that further make it look like a cartoon rather than an actual dog. It’s one of the ugly dogs on this list that we know anyone would want.
This is a Pug and Shih Tzu mix that got a really bad genetic deal. The coat looks sad, especially on the face where it is thicker and bushier in some places and thin and transparent in others. Even though he is one of the ugly dogs on this list, he still looks like a gem.

Chinese Crested Part II
We’re serving you another Chinese Crested, this one has far less hair on its head than the last and we’re not sure which is more desirable as both don’t look great. Thin hair around the face makes it look like a dog that’s lost the majority of its fur. That’s not a cute look! But, we feel like he’d probably still make a great friend.
If you liked, these ugly dogs, perhaps you’d like to switch gears and look at some funny ones! We decided to round up some funny dogs in meme, video, and picture form to share with you to prove that our furry pals have a great sense of humor or, at least, their owners know how to frame a certain situation to make their funny dogs really shine. Take a look at our favorite funny dogs and we promise they will turn any frown upside down!
Discover the Best Funny Dogs Videos, Images, and Memes Below!
Telling It Like It Is
We turn to the funny dogs who need a little extra help getting around to kick off this list of funny pups! This cute pug might not have all four legs on the ground, but he knows how to make the best of any situation. “I like to run over the big dog with my cart,” his little sign says.
Have you ever wondered what funny dogs send other dogs at the bar? This meme explores the deliciousness of toilet water among dogs. What drink would your dog order?
“Imagine getting distracted and seeing your dog with nuggets like this,” this funny dogs meme says. Can you “imagine?” We don’t know how this dog ended up with half a dozen chicken nuggets in his mouth at once, but we can’t help but feel a sense of pride.
Can You Relate?
“When [you] accidentally open the front camera,” this funny dogs meme says. Who else can relate to looking a little crazy when being pictured face-on? We’re pretty sure you can see yourself in the face of this funny pup! Oh, yeah!
Is your dog one of the funny dogs that loses its mind when a squeaky toy is in play? You’re not alone! In this meme, we find a funny dog who has lost all its cool when it comes to a beloved toy. We’re pretty sure there are plenty of funny dogs out there who feel the same way when they hear a squeak.
A Unique Pair
Here are a couple of funny dogs who have a great sense of identity. “She is my sweet potato,” one of these dogs’ signs says. The other, “I yam.” If you like your funny dogs with some punny humor, you could do no better than this electrifying dog meme.
A Way of Life

When You Know
Many of us compliment our furry friends by asking “Who’s a good boy?” The funny thing about this question is that your good boys and girls always know that they’re the ones.
We all know some funny dogs who are not fond of bath time. In this very funny meme, we find a dog that’s got some PTSD when it comes to bath time. The waterfalls are pretty for humans but prove a bit triggering for our fur babies.
Here’s one of the funny dogs doing potty time his own way. If you’ve ever taken a dog for a walk, you know just how magical a potty break can be for a pup. This little dog has taken things to the next level with a nice “handstand” potty break.
“So my sister bought her dog a new ball for Christmas,” this funny dogs meme says. We’re certainly sure this gift brings nothing but smiles. May we all do as well as this person’s sister when it comes to a perfect gift for a dog.
Who Else Has Been There?
“When you told him he can cook but the Wi-Fi acting up and you don’t know where to start,” feels like a pretty relatable caption for this funny dogs meme.

That Cool Dog
“What if I was cool? Oh, wait. I still am,” this meme of a dog wearing sunglasses says. There’s nothing cooler than a pup with a point of view and a sense of style, right? May we all be so lucky to have this sense of self-worth.
Funny Dogs and Therapy
What happens after “sharing” problems with that “therapy” dog? You know, some things are just a bit much to handle. We find comedy in this funny dogs image and meme about therapy. Our therapy dogs perform a task, but they’re not equipped to untangle our thorniest messes, unfortunately.
“He’s not remotely sorry,” this funny dogs meme says. Is your furry friend a chewer? If so, you know that nothing is safe, not even your TV remote, when it comes to your fur baby. The dog might be sorry but he sure isn’t changing his ways anytime soon!
A Loose Seal
Funny dogs are always mischievous little friends who don’t know how cute the weird things they do actually are. In the above example, we’re treated to a dog who has managed to transform into a seal while its owner was showering. How do they get these wild ideas?
“I see you has a chicken samiche, I also like chicken samiches,” this funny dogs meme says. This one is for the pet parents who have a dog who watches like a hawk while you eat. If you know a furry friend like that, you know just how they can turn the charm on to try and get the goodies.
Are you a fan of horror movies but they actually scare you a whole bunch? We’ve got one of the funny dogs channeling your energy in this silly meme that finds a dog watching a scary movie with popcorn and a soda. Hands were made to cover eyes during the scary bits, right?
Adulting is hard and sometimes it takes funny dogs to help us make light of just how strange being a human actually is. “When someone has explained something to [you] 7 times and you still don’t get it and [you] hope they forgive how stupid [you] are,” this funny meme says. Sometimes saying it with a dog is easier than saying anything at all.
For the Singles Out There
We turn to funny dogs to make single life even more relatable. In this meme, we find a dog dressed to impress, dancing with a partner. “Finally a man I can trust,” the meme says. If you’re having trouble finding the yin to your yang, then you know that dogs are the only real answer.

‘Nobody Is Going to Believe You’
“What if one day, your dog just randomly said, ‘Nobody is going to believe you,’ and then never spoke again?” this funny dogs meme asks us. What would you do in that situation? Would you accept that your dog is the real boss? We think it would help a lot of us see the world in a better light!
That Good Song
“When you reach your destination but you don’t want to leave the car because the song is too good,” this funny dogs meme says. Who else has been there? We’re pretty sure this dog is all of us when that second verse is better than the first.
We find a couple of funny dogs here, one that is all about work and, the other, play, in this insanely funny meme. “Ladies, get you a man who can do both,” the funny dogs meme says. It’s all about balance, right? This meme gets that!
The Best of the Best Side-Eye
“My friend’s dog is so awkward when you make eye contact with him,” this funny dogs meme says. We can all be a little bit awkward, especially when we’re not ready to engage. We find a funny meme here that totally captures what it is like to be “so awkward.”
They Don’t Want the ‘Real’ You
Here’s one of the funny dogs that is perfect if you have trouble connecting with your coworkers. It’s not easy performing daily tasks and then staying “on” after work to appease coworkers. This dog totally gets how hard it is to socialize when you’ve got very little left to give when the day is done.
Get Out of Bed
At times, our funny dogs can seem more human than we ever imagined. “I forced my dog out of bed and he walked around the house like this,” this funny meme captions an image of a dog wrapped up in a blanket. Are you this dog? Are you always this dog? If so, you’re not alone.
Who else has tried the old “fake out” ball throw for your dog? This funny dogs meme imagines the lived experience of such a betrayal for a dog must look like. Just don’t, okay? Your dog deserves better.
