The L.A. Times reports that Elwood, who was crowned the 2007 “World's Ugliest Dog” died suddenly on Nov. 28. Reports indicate that Elwood died unexpectedly, but was in the arms of his owner and friend Karen Quigley when he passed. It's unknown what caused Elwood's death, but Quigley says he had been sick.
Elwood was a Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix that had very dark skin and sported a white mohawk on the top of his head. After Elwood was crowned the “World's Ugliest Dog” in 2007, Quigley told The L.A. Times that his breeder was going to “euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell,” so she decided to rescue him.
