The beloved New Jersey mutt crowned the world's ugliest dog in 2007 has died. He was 8 years old.

Elwood's owner says he died unexpectedly Thanksgiving morning.

The Chinese crested, Chihuahua mix was better known to his fans as Yoda or ET.

He won his infamous crown at the annual ugly dog contest at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair in California, a year after he came in second.

He also became a character in a children's book about acceptance.

Elwood had been dealing with health issues in recent months.
