Every summer, dozens of pups face off at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, to decide who takes home the title of “World's Ugliest Dog.” The winner with the “ugliest” mug becomes a house-hold face featured on hundreds of news channels, talk shows, and internet sites. Several contestants are rescue dogs and the film celebrates and explores our perception of “ugly” and the fiercely competitive doggie parents who will defend their pet’s unique looks ‘til the end!
If you have a pet with a face only a mother could love, you won’t want to miss “Worst in Show”!
