Peanut to World's Ugliest Dog Contest

Holly Chandler   GREENVILLE, NC



Hello everyone! My name is Peanut. I would love nothing more than for my mommy to enter me in the World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, CA.

I have been bullied and picked on my whole life... You see, before my mommy decided to love me, I was abused by my previous owners. I was scared, unloved, and confused. Then, when I thought things could not be worse, my owners set me on fire.

I don't understand why they could do such a thing! I was severely burned from head to tail. Some nice person found me in Washington, NC and took me to some nice doctors that worked hard to keep me alive. With their help, I was able to pull through. My heart was scared forever. But so was my body.

Because of the trauma the fire caused to my skin, I am what I have heard so many people describe me as "ugly". My hair isn't going to grow back on much of my body. My eyes do not close because my eyelids were burned. And my teeth show because I no longer have lips. (My Mommy says I am always smiling!)



My mom gets very upset when I am taken in public. I get looked at like I am disgusting. Some have even questioned why my mommy didn't have me put down to be "put out of my misery". I don't feel miserable - until people say those mean things about me...

I would love nothing more than to go to a place where my appearance is celebrated! The World's Ugliest Dog Contest would be the perfect place to spread my message! I want the chance to spread awareness of animal abuse and to show people that abused animals are not 'broken'. We need love too!

Please help me reach my goal so that my momma can enter me into the World's Ugliest Dog Contest! It is not about winning or losing! It is about using the opportunity to bring awareness to Animal Abuse! Please help!

Thank you! WOOF!

Peanut, you are priceless and so is your momma. My heart cries to even think of what some heartless people did to use. It is amazing that you trust any human again. I hope you and your momma have a wonderful trip and spread the word about animal abuse. God bless you little boy.

What an amazing story & in my opinion, Peanut is beautiful as well as perfect! While Peanuts story is heartbreaking, that little face & permanent smile is so adorable, I just love it! The world needs more people such as yourself. It's a special gift to love, form bonds & show an animal that they're loved. Nothing hurts me more than seeing & hearing innocent, trusting animals being abused, on any level, so kudos to you! I will keep Peanut in my prayers & I wish y'all lots of luck!
