The proud owner of the Chinese Crested pooch, from the US, adopted him from a shelter in Arizona after he was rescued from a shepherd’s house.
But despite being crowned champions in the World’s Ugliest Dog competition hosted in Petaluma, CaliforniaJaneda just thinks her puppy is ‘ugly’.
Speaking to Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary via Zoom, she said: ‘I describe him as the most wonderful creature ever made.
‘I do not feel comfortable saying the ugliest dog in the world – he is one of the most beautiful creatures. It is more a celebration of their uniqueness and the beauty they bring to the world.
‘If we can all be a little friendlier to each other, we can see how beautiful this world can be.’

Twitter users agreed with Janeda, calling Mr Happy Face ‘adorable’.
Katharine Merry wrote that he was ‘fun’ and ‘unique’, while another Twitter user named Stephanie said she would adopt all dogs like Mr Happy Face.
However, one Twitter user disagreed and compared the pooch to one of The Gremlins.
The pooch certainly won over Alison, who described him as ‘beautiful’.
Janeda added that when she adopted Mr Happy Face, she did not think he would live very long because he had various health problems.
She said: ‘I have accepted Mr Happy Face with the understanding that he would probably become a hospice situation.

“I was very lucky when we could have six weeks – so far it has been 10 months ago.”
‘His health conditions are so much better. It took a lot of love and time. And also be creative. ‘
She gave the pooch a treat on camera, she said he was ‘doing well’.
In the midst of the excitement that Mr Happy Face will be crowned champion, many are wondering if he will compete next year to retain his title.
Twitter users were divided over the appearance of My Happy Face with some comparing him to one of the Gremlins, while others said he was ‘adorable’ – and some even said they would adopt the pooch themselves.
But according to Janeda, the pooch is retired from the pageant circuit.
She said: ‘Every dog deserves its moment to feed.
‘The happiness and joy they bring to the world and its people. Every day is a blessing. ‘
The contest, which was held last weekend after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, encourages adoption instead of buying breeders.

This year’s winner, Mr Happy Face, was closely followed by worthy runners-up Wild Thing, owned by Ann Lewis, and Monkey, owned by Scotch Haley.
