The world’s ugliest dog in 2007, Elwood, died on Thanksgiving Day, according to ABC News on Saturday, November 30, 2013.

Elwood was an eight-year-old Chihuahua and Chinese crested mix. His owner, Karen Quigley of Sewell, New Jersey said that “When this ‘angel’ boy came into my life, he has worked tirelessly on behalf of homeless and abused animals everywhere. Elwood has traveled extensively… appearing at over 200 events raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for innumerable rescue groups and non-profit animal organizations.

During the 2007 Marin-Sonoma County Fair in California, Elwood was given recognition for “his distinctive looks, hairless except for a tuft on his head and a tongue that was permanently out on one side.”

Fans of Elwood has given him different monickers that include Yoda and E.T.

Elwood also starred in a children’s book entitled “Everyone Loves Elwood.”
