The organisers of a competition to find the UK’s ugliest dog have called for more submissions claiming initial entries are far too cute. 

Early entries include Peggy, (pictured above), but the organisers say most of the pets entered so far have been too pretty.

Too cute! This entry failed to pass the ugly dog competition requirements

Matt Dahan, founder of ParrotPrint.com said: “We love dogs and it’s great that so many owners are willing to put their beloved pets forward for our competition but we need to be clear, this is a contest to find the ugliest dog in Britain. 

“We have had a strong response but so far 90% of entries have been cute dogs. While it’s great that so many people want to be involved, we need to ask people not to send in pictures unless they honestly consider their dog to be one of the ugliest in the land. 

“We are looking for dogs who make your eyes hurt when you look at them. This definitely isn’t a competition for cute dogs or pretty pets.

“If you think your dog is butt ugly then we want to hear from you. The winning mutt will be treated to a professional grooming and a before and after photo session. Let’s see if we can transform an ugly dog into a beautiful pooch and brighten up its owner’s life at the same time.”

Entries in an ugly dog competition are just too cute say organisers

The competition, run by photography company ParrotPrint.com, has been set-up to find the UK’s ugliest dog and comes with a warning urging pretty dogs not to apply. 

The spokesman said that a large number of ParrotPrint.com orders were for canvas prints of dogs and cats – reflecting Britain’s love affair with its pets.

He added: “There have been a number of TV shows where humans get tarted-up and given a makeover so we thought it would be fun to do the same thing for a dog. 

“There are plenty of cute doggies out there across the UK but we don’t want to hear from them. This is a competition for only the most ugly dogs in the land. Forget about the cute dogs we want to see the uncute. 

“I am talking about the dogs you’d cross the street to avoid. The mutts who look so ugly their owners feel they have to apologise for owning them.

“We believe we can transform them into something truly beautiful and give their owners a fantastic photoshoot experience too. But it has to be a challenge so pampered pooches need not apply.” 

The contest is open for entries now with a closing date of 31st December 2022. The 12 shortlisted dogs will be announced in the New Year ahead of the selection of an overall winner.
