Britain’s ugliest dog Peggy enjoys her pampering prize

Britain’s ugliest dog Peggy, the unique crossbreed who won the title, was spoiled rotten yesterday

We weren’t sure how we felt about Peggy being crowned Britain’s ugliest dog; as a friend asked, did she even consent to entering this competition?! But Peggy enjoying the pampering fuss gave us all the feels, so we’re cheering her on now.

Also I think she’s absolutely adorable, I can’t help myself. Incidentally Peggy has her own Instagram account, should you feel inclined to follow her.

She enjoyed several treatments including a fabulous hydrobath followed by a blueberry facial. Feeling clean and refreshed, Peggy then had a hand dry and trim before finishing with a paw and nose balm treatment and a spritz of fragrance, so she left the groomer looking and smelling fantastic.

Happy mum too

Holly Middleton, Peggy’s owner said: “Thank you so much to, who were behind this competition, for the whole experience, and all the lovely ladies at the exclusive doggie spa.

“Being part of the ugliest dog competition has been brilliant from start to finish. Peggy has loved every second and has been absolutely lapping up all of the fuss and attention.

“The makeover was fabulous and Peggy was treated like an absolute queen. What little hair she has is extremely soft and fluffy and she smells divine, which is rare. She’s been absolutely spoiled rotten but she 100% deserves it.”

What else did Peggy win?

The luxury spa was the first part of Peggy’s prize. She will now go on to receive a canvas print portrait.

Chief judge and Parrot Print founder Matt Dahan said: “Peggy is a little star and she is a worthy winner of our fun competition to find the UK’s ugliest dog.

“It was fantastic to see her enjoy her prize at the spa and she looked amazing after all her treatments. Now we are working on producing an exclusive portrait of her on one of our canvas prints.”

And how is Peggy coping with the fame and adulation?

“She seems to be dealing with her new-found fame very well and I just hope all this attention doesn’t go to her head,” says Matt.
