Who’s the ugliest dog in South Bend?

When people see our office dog Pladook, they always say he’s not so ugly. That may be true, but we want to know who the ugliest mutt in town really is. This year, Ugly Dog Media is once again hosting the Ugly Dog Contest as part of DTSB’s “First Friday” event, titled “Dog Days of Summer”.

The event will be held in downtown South Bend on June 6.

We will be set up on the gridiron in front of the former Football Hall of Fame, and you can register on Ugly Dog’s Facebook page, or come by and register your pooch onsite beginning at 5 p.m. Our show will start at 7 p.m. and go until 8:30 p.m.

If your dog’s not one of those snaggle-toothed, drooling mutts that make you recoil in horror, don’t worry, you can still enter. Besides a grand prize for the ugliest dog, we’re also offering prizes on the day of the event for cutest dog, dog who looks most like its owner, best-dressed dog and cutest puppy. Come on down and join the fun! Even if you don’t have a dog, you can enjoy the show.

This year Drewrys Beer sponsors our event, and we’ll have some great prizes from our co-sponsors including South Bend Silver Hawks and Downtown Comedy Connection. Guest judges include Jasmine Norwood of ABC57 and Acting Mayor Mark Neal, as well as pet lover extraordinaire Valerie Schey.


If you like what you see, and your company needs event planning and public relations, please stop by and talk with us on June 6, or give us a call any time at 574-344-2056.
