'Scamp the Tramp' crowned the world's ugliest dog

Scamp the Tramp brings new meaning to the phrase "a face only a mother could love," but under that rough exterior is a heart of gold.

Scamp is officially the world's ugliest dog after taking home the top prize at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California.

The bug-eyed pooch was rescued off the streets of Compton three years ago.

He now spends his days visiting senior citizen centers and schools.

Scamp's owner won a giant trophy, $15,000, and a donation of the same amount to an animal shelter.
