Judges say Yoda, a 1.8-pound, 4-legged assault to the eyes from Hanford, Calif., outranked the competition to win the title of World's Ugliest Dog.

The 14-year-old, scrawny, teacup of unsightliness formally known as a Chinese Crested, came away from Friday's competition at the Sonoma-Marin Fair with a $1,000 prize and a trophy for her owner, Terry Schumacher, the Petaluma (Calif.) Argus Courier reported Saturday.

Schumacher said she had considered bringing Yoda to the contest before but couldn't get away from her job. Now it's easier because she owns her own business: a dog grooming parlor.
