The "World's Ugliest Dog" contest has a new champion after a mutt named Peanut beat out the 28 other contestants for the title of homeliest canine.

The annual "World's Ugliest Dog" competition, held Friday night at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California, drew entrants from all across the country.

But it was Peanut, a 2-year-old shelter rescue and burn victim from Greenville, North Carolina, who ultimately won the $1,500 first prize and four-foot trophy.

"He doesn't have lips anymore. His eyelids are also gone, and so he can't close his eyes so therefore his eyes water," Holly Chandler, Peanut’s owner, told CBS San Francisco. "The tears drain into his nose and so he has nice little snot bubbles because of it. So it's great, that adds to his character."

"He's my baby. I guess I don't see him every day as being that ugly. But I guess the judges thought so."

Brian Sobel, a member of the fair board, San Francisco Giants' in-game television reporter Amy Gutierrez, and television and film celebrity Cameron Mathison of "Good Morning America" and "Dancing With the Stars" served as judges.
