A New Jersey dog crowned the world’s ugliest dog has died, the Associated Press reports.

Elwood, who was 8, was named the world’s ugliest dog in 2007 at the annual World’s Ugliest Dog Contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair in California. The Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix died unexpectedly Thanksgiving morning, his owner Karen Quigley said.
