The 2-year-old rescue dog – a mix of Chihuahua and Shih Tzu – was seriously burned as a puppy, which resulted in bald patches all over his body.
His wild hair, bulging eyes and wickedly crooked teeth helped earn Peanut the ugliest dog title at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petuluma, Calif. this week.

Trying to help the little guy out, Kimmel brought in a team of folks to style Peanut’s hair and give him some snazzy new threads and a beauty makeover on Wednesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
“Peanut hasn't had it easy and we wanted to give him a special gift,” said Kimmel.
