And remember to vote for your favorite dog photo here! Contest ends in a few days.

I will let Julie tell you about Cuda:

Our Story

Cuda is a congenital miracle who somehow survived and ended up in our family when she was five months old.  She was given to us at a gas station by a couple who had said they rescued her.  Upon examination you can see that she bears several obvious traits of an inbred dog, including a fused neck, curved spine, hunched back, hocked rear legs and an exaggerated under bite.  She has received a clean bill of health and continues to thrive, playing with our other dogs and cats.  Our goal is to promote the awareness pit bull tolerance, inbreeding, line breeding and overpopulation.

The Impact

By taking Cuda to the World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma California in June 2011 we hope to make the public aware of the ramification of overpopulation of animals, risks associated with Inbreeding and pit bull tolerance.

#13 In Our Dog Photo Contest - Meet Wilson

This is my Australian Shepherd, Wilson.  He is a wonderful dog and has been my “savior”.  During a most difficult time in my life when I felt most alone and on an “island”, I named him after the volleyball in the movie “Castaway” with Tom Hanks.  Similar to that volleyball, my Australian Shepherd provided me with companionship and support.   Laura
