Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the same goes for dogs. While some may find certain breeds adorable, others may find them quite unappealing. Here are the top 10 ugliest dog breeds that some may find unattractive.
Caucasian Mountain Dog
With a big, hairy appearance, the Caucasian Mountain Dog is not the ugliest dog on this list, but it can be intimidating to those who are not part of its pack. Originally bred in Russia as guard dogs, they have recently made their way to the United States.
This breed’s hair grows in a distinctive way, resembling a lamb’s wool. While some may find it cute, others may find it strange and put it on the list of the ugliest breeds.
With its tiny head and large body, the Borzoi may seem odd-looking. But these dogs are great hunters and very agile, making them excellent companions for those who enjoy the outdoors.
This ancient breed of dog has been around for over 3,000 years and was originally used as a sheepdog. Their protective nature makes them great with children, but their unique coat requires a significant commitment to maintaining.
The Puli is smaller than the Komondor but has a similarly crazy coat that requires a lot of maintenance. But this breed’s loyal and intelligent nature makes them great family pets.
This breed is big, the tallest dog in the world, in fact. While they were one of the first domesticated dog breeds, their shaggy, coarse grey coat does not win them any beauty contests.
These gentle giants are fiercely loyal to their pack, and their loose, floppy skin serves a purpose in fights with wolves and other dogs, giving them greater agility.
English Bull Terrier
These short, stocky dogs have a distinct egg-shaped head that may be considered unappealing to some. While they may be popular in advertising campaigns, it is likely due to their hot appearance more than their acting abilities.
This tiny dog with mottled hairless skin and hair only on the top of their head, tail, and feet, may be appealing to some, but others may find them weird-looking.
With short, scraggly hair patches and blotchy skin, this breed may be the least attractive to some. However, they are still lovable pets, despite their appearance.
OK, so beauty is subjective and while some may find these breeds of dogs unappealing, others may love them. Did we mention your dog on this list? If so, let us know in the comments below.
