This weekend, Yoda, a Chinese crested-Chihuahua mix whose owner first thought the pitiful puppy was a street rat, won the title of World's Ugliest Dog. Congrats! However we must make mention of the previous title-holders, who may or may not be much more hideous than Yoda. View this gallery of the past decade's winners and judge for yourself who's the ugliest of them all!
