Sam and Susie

I can’t determine whether Sam, the World’s Ugliest Dog is being loved or exploited.

Though [Susie] Lockheed had wanted her other dogs, she had to be persuaded to take in the world’s ugliest dog. He had already been rejected by an adoption agency, which deemed him too homely for any home they knew. Sam’s former owner, who was moving to a place where dogs weren’t allowed, was desperate, Lockheed said.

“He didn’t look so good then, but he’s looking worse now,” Lockheed said, adding that in recent years Sam has gone blind and suffered illness. “There’s something quite noble about Sam. Even though he’s unattractive, he expects to be treated like royalty.”

I suppose it’s the former.



  1. I was waiting for you to post about the Ugly dog. That’s a big news item. Much more important than the Israeli use of troops to evacuate the Gaza Strip
