Yoda, a 15-year-old Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix, died on Saturday the 10th of March in her sleep. Last year she got all the fame at a competition when she was awarded ‘The Ugliest Dog in the World’ in California.
Yoda only weighed 1.8lbs (0.8kg) when she was found abandoned behind a building by Terry Schumacher. Terry mistakenly thought Yoda was a rat not a dog but Yoda went on to win $1000 dollars for her astonishing looks!
After her competition she was on T.V and also featured on a makeover show.
The little dog had short tuffs of hair, skinny little legs and a protruding tongue. Ms Schumacher said she will miss ‘her furry little ways’ but she is “comforted knowing she will be joining my Mom and Dad who loved her so much. Her memories will live on forever.”
