Miss Ellie world's ugliest dog dies aged 17

275x250.jpgA dog which became world famous for her bizarre looks has died at the age of 17.

Miss Ellie, a Chinese crested hairless from Tennessee with a lolling tongue and crazy hair won Animal Planet's "World's Ugliest Dog" contest in 2009.

Her odd look - which many found strangely cute - made her an internet favourite and she made many public appearances raising over $100,000 for rescue animal charities.

Owner Dawn Goehring, who took a seven-year-old Miss Ellie in as a rescue dog almost ten years ago, said the death was "not unexpected even though she had been doing well."

And ss a make of respect to little Miss Ellie we have not made any 'looking woof' jokes in this article, well we tried not to.
