Back page: Quasi Modo leads for world’s homliest hound

PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) — He’s overweight and has a birth defect that left him a bit hunchbacked. Quasi Modo is a 10-year-old pit bull-Dutch shepherd mix who was leading the World’s Ugliest Dog contest, with nearly 10,000 votes by Friday. Resembling a hyena or Tasmanian devil, he can unsettle some people, but he makes up for it with a bubbly personality, his biography says. Quasi Modo was far ahead of No. 2 Morris, a mutt who looks a little like a pig with a spiky haircut and has garnered more than 5,000 votes. The two are among 27 dogs vying for the title of homeliest hound, which has been given to a pooch in the small California coastal town of Petaluma for decades.

Dogs have arrived from as far as Florida, Idaho, Nevada and Arizona to compete in a contest that applauds imperfections. The winner will receive $1,500 Friday night at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds.
