Pop-Up Pooch park in Tempe throws 'Pugly Sweater' party

TEMPE, AZ - And you thought YOUR Christmas sweater was ugly!

Valley pooches donned their ugliest sweaters to compete in the " Pugly Sweater" contest in Tempe Thursday.

The event was held at a pop-up park at the Hayden Square Amphitheater near Rio Salado Parkway and Mill Avenue.
The winners went home with a bag of prizes for themselves and their owners.

The "Pugly Sweater Party" was also a way for adoptable pets and animal rescue groups to get exposure.

Here's hoping some of the featured pets found "furever" homes.
