World's ugliest dog dies aged 17 June 4, 2010 - 9:45AM Miss Ellie, a small, bug-eyed Chinese Crested Hairless dog whose pimples and lolling tongue helped her win Animal Planet's World's Ugliest Dog contest last year, has died at age 17 after a career in resort showbusiness in the Smoky Mountains. The Mountain Press reported on Thursday that Ellie starred in shows at the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. She also appeared on The Animal Planet cable show, Dogs 101, and was on billboards and in a commercial. Pigeon Forge mayor Keith Whaley proclaimed November 12 as Miss Ellie Day for her owner's efforts to raise money for the local humane society. Over the years, Ellie helped raise more than $100,000 for the Sevier County Humane Society. She will be cremated. World's ugliest dog dies aged 17 ^^Maybe World's Second Ugliest dog?
