Former 'World's Ugliest Dog' dies at age 17 - by Lauren V.

Miss Ellie may have been voted "World's Ugliest Dog" in 2009, but few canines chalk up such a star-worthy resume as she did during her 17 years of life.

According to USA Today, this little ugly duckling "starred in shows at the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge , Tenn., and also had a worldwide following. She appeared on The Animal Planet cable show 'Dogs 101... Ellie even helped raise more than $100,000 for the Sevier County Humane Society."

Dawn Goehring feels happy to have owned and loved this unusually-looking dog. Miss Ellie was reportedly one of 13 rescued dogs living at her owner's home and constantly worked towards raising money and awareness about homeless animals.

Ellie was going to compete one more time for her title, but died before this year's competition.

This girl was a class act, and as the song says:

"God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way I see
Oh god takes ugly
And turns it into to something that is beautiful
Apparently I'm beautiful
Cause you love me"

Rest in peace Ellie!  You are beautiful!
