The ugliest dog in England is being bullied

The dog named ET has shed its fur, revealing a black spotted skin like that of a pig. Although very friendly, its appearance makes everyone want to stay away.

The old owner was too old to take care of ET. It was sent to a pet center in Waltham Abbey, Essex to look for a new owner. But for three months, no one came to visit it. The poor dog was always lying in its crib.

Dawn Fields, who is in charge of the center, said that it usually takes only a few weeks to find a new home for a dog. But ET still hasn’t been adopted. He said: “I think ET was rejected because of its unusual appearance. When people come to visit, we put it in the first crib. But they quickly walk away. Then we put it in the last crib, but it’s no better.”

Although ET is ugly, it has a lovely personality. The dog is named after Steven Spielberg’s movie “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”. It is one of 27 hairless Mexican dogs raised in the UK. If it participated in the competition for the ugliest dog in England, it could win the crown. According to Dawn Fields, ET is a playful and friendly dog. It likes to make friends with anyone, jump around and play ball. ET used to play with the owner’s grandchildren. In addition, it is very easy to take care of this hairless dog. Dawn shared: “Just apply a little sunscreen in the summer so its skin doesn’t get sunburned and put on a coat when it’s cold. You don’t have to spend hours cleaning ET’s fur like other dogs because it doesn’t shed.”

According to the Daily Mail, the center is still trying to find a new owner for ET. They even advertised in newspapers.
