Meet 'World's Cutest Rescue Dog'!

Lamb Chop, a shy little 12-pound Maltese from Washington County was adopted in December 2014 by Christin Schubert in Wisconsin. She has just won the World Cutest Rescue Dog contest organized by People and judged by Pedigree

 

 

An adorable dog who was forced to give birth to multiple litters at a puppy mill has officially been crowned the World’s Cutest Rescue Dog.

 

Lamb Chop, a shy little 12lb Maltese, was adopted in December 2014 by Christin Schubert, who admits she was always a 'cat person' before laying eyes on the pup at an animal shelter in Wisconsin.

 

'I hadn’t planned on getting a dog but she was so small. She struck my heart,' Christin said.

 

After suffering such a tragic start to life, Lamb Chop this week triumphed over more than 10,000 other adorable dogs to take first place in PEOPLE's third annual World’s Cutest Rescue Dog Contest Presented by the PEDIGREE® Brand.

 

The fluffy companion has won a year’s supply of dog food from the PEDIGREE® Brand, $1,000 (£771) to donate to the animal rescue of her choice, and is even set to make an appearance on Good Morning America.

'When she was rescued, local vets had to remove all of her teeth because they were rotten,' Christin said.

 

Lamb Chop also had to be treated for a nasty case of cauliflower ear and had to have several tumors removed as a result of medical neglect. All of these later medical expenses were covered by the Washington County Humane Society before Lamb Chop went to her forever home.
