Aww! This is so sad!
Elwood, who was crowned the world's ugliest dog in 2007, has sadly passed away. He was 8-years-old.
The canine's owner
Karen Quigley said her adorably ugly pooch died on Thanksgiving morning after months of health problems, although the death was unexpected.
The Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix had become something of a cultural phenomenon after winning his ugliest dog crown in 2007.
Since then, the pooch has appeared at hundreds of events, and also helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for animal rescue organizations and other animal care groups.

Congrats to the 4-year-old mutt who stole the top prize from ugly chihuahuas and Chinese cresteds, proving that any dog can claim the illustrious title!
He won the 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest!
The little doggy is part beagle, basset and boxer and looks like a bad collage of several drastically different dogs.
He's short and squat with big paws and a hump back.
Walle's "unique" looks have won him $1,500 and the chance to go on several network TV shows like
Today and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Congrats again, Walle! We still think you're super adorbz!!
