Spanish Galgo

The Spanish Galgo is often considered an “ugly” dog breed due to its slightly awkward gait and lanky build. However, their loyal and gentle nature more than makes up for any perceived shortcomings in the looks department.

Affenpinschers are certainly not your typical beauty queens – their appearance is a unique mix of adorable and peculiar. But their faces steal the show. With their bushy eyebrows, mustache, and beard, Affenpinschers look just like mischievous little monkeys.




With a slim, sleek style that seems more suited for a fashion runway than a dog park, these pups are known for their lean, oddly graceful appearance.


Bergamasco Sheepdog

The Bergamasco Sheepdog is a unique-looking dog that some might describe as “ugly-cute”. Its most distinguishing feature is its shaggy coat, which is made up of long, matted strands of hair that resemble dreadlocks.


Griffon Brussels

The Griffon Brussels looks like a little streetwise rascal, with a wiry, scruffy coat that adds to their scrappy look.
