'World's ugliest dog' meets fans in Leeds

When it comes to famous dogs, forget Lassie, Snoopy, Goofy, or Mutley, because there's a new kid in town and his name is Tuna the Dog. Often referred to as the ugliest dog in the world, Tuna is an internet sensation. To put it in to perspective, rock legend Mick Jagger has more than 500,000 followers on Instagram, Ant and Dec have over 600,000 and the pop star OIlly Murs has 1.4million.

However, all of them are trumped by Tuna who has a whopping 1.7million followers. Tuna the dog is currently on tour around the UK and our reporter Adam Fowler went to meet him at Waterstones in Leeds.
