Britain’s ugliest dog: Balding Chase gets a modelling contract | Nature | News

Described as Britain’s ugliest dog, Chase has a cataract in one eye, is toothless and balding apart from a few grey spikes. He also walks like a crab.

Named as the third ugliest dog in the world thanks to his unique looks, he has been headhunted by a model agency.

Top agency Models Direct, which boasts clients including M&S, Disney, MAC make-up and Pets at Home, hopes to make Chase into a star.

Professional photos show rescue dog Chase strutting his stuff by donning a leather jacket, feather boa and even a multi-coloured Hawaiian lei. 

Owner Storm Shayler, 49, hopes the modelling portraits will lead to his name in lights and said “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.

She said: “The agency emailed me asking for more photos and then offered Chase a three-year contract.

“His earnings will vary depending on the job but I will just be happy for anything he gets. He will always be a star to me. Anything he earns will be ploughed back into the dog. He’s up for anything.”

Storm, of Cimla, in south Wales, is so devoted to her pet she even takes him as a plus one to weddings. She said: “I take him everywhere with me in his own little harness and nothing fazes him.

“I couldn’t ask for a better dog and having him with me gives me that extra bit of confidence.” 

The pet is used to turning heads. He ranked third place in the World’s Ugliest Dog competition last year in Petaluma, California.

Hospital worker Storm said: “I couldn’t believe it when they called out the winners and I heard his name.

“The competition is great because it promotes the animals that might get overlooked because of their appearance.”

The winner of the ugly dog competition was three-yearold Neapolitan mastiff Martha.

Second place went to Moe, a 16-year-old Brussels griffon-pug mix.
