Dogs, like humans, should have symmetrical shape of body proportion and anatomy. But this is not the case with this breed.

Even from a far, it looks somewhat ugly and odd, like out of proportion. But then again, some find the dog to be somewhat cure and adorable while others think the opposite.

This is definitely one of the weirdest and ugliest dog breeds ever. Seriously, everything about this dog doesn’t make any sense. It has long and white fine hair on the head, tail, and legs but the other areas are bold and hairless. It is skinny with spots and blotch on the skin, making it looks like a sick dog. Pugs are also ugly but they are ugly in a cute way. This is not the case with the Chinese Crested. They are straight up, seriously, 100% ugly.

When you combine Shar Pei, Bloodhound, and English Mastiff, this is the result and not in a good and positive tone, really. It’s like the mixture is going wrong and the breed is just naturally ugly.
Despite the physical appearance, they are mostly kind and patient. It is one of the major reasons why it is so easy to love them. Once you are able to pass the physical factor, you will see that these ugliest dog breeds may not be attractive but they have beautiful heart and manner.
