His owner Storm Shayler, 50, said : "Chase was a one-of-a-kind dog. "He had so much personality and I took him everywhere with me.

"Nothing at all ever fazed him - he loved people and people loved him."

Storm, of Cimla, Neath, South Wales, rescued Chinese-crested mix Chase from a puppy farm.

He came third in the world ugly dog competition in California for his cataract in one eye and his crab like walk.

Storm said: "When I sent in a photograph and entered him in the World's Ugliest Dog Competition I never imagined he would win a prize but I was gobsmacked when he came third and won a 3ft trophy!

"He lapped up all the attention on the day like a little star and loved showing himself off. He might not have won first prize but he was always a winner in my eyes.

"He just loved his life so much. He was an absolute joy for the eight years I had him. I was with him when he died - I just cuddled him and he slipped away peacefully. He had an amazing life but I am going to miss him beyond words."
