‘World’s Ugliest Dog’ from NC gets incredible makeover on Jimmy Kimmel

Earlier this week, a North Carolina rescue pooch named Peanut was crowned the “World’s Ugliest Dog.”

The 2-year-old mutt was set on fire by his previous owner before someone found him and nursed him back to health. The mutt’s eyelids were burned so badly that he cannot close his eyes. Also, some of Peanut’s hair will not grow back.

So, Jimmy Kimmel decided to enlist a team of makeup and hair specialists to give Peanut a makeover.

They tried sneakers, wigs, and even a jacket with the word “sexy” emblazoned on it, before settling for a simple bow tie.

But Peanut’s true “beauty” could not be concealed.

    Making fun of an “ugly” dog that is “ugly” only because some worthless POS mistreated and set the dog on fire is no reason to make light of such a horrible crime. I think it is almost as cruel to make fun of this tortured, disfigured dog as it was in setting it on fire.
