Zsa Zsa, Reigning 'World's Ugliest Dog,' Has Died

Zsa Zsa, the nine-year-old English bulldog victor of the World's Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair in California last month, passed away in her sleep yesterday, July 10.

U.S. news outlet Today reports the unfortunate - but loveable - pooch died overnight, New Zealand time, at her home in Minnesota with owner Megan Brainard present until the end. She lived life as an underdog, spending five years in a puppy mill before being rescued.

Zsa Zsa won the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog contest a little over a week before she crossed the rainbow bridge Tuesday morning. "I'm still in shock".

With her floppy tongue, crooked teeth and pink manicure, Zsa Zsa captured the hearts of the judges at the annual contest in Petaluma, California. "It's probably going to be the same with her passing". "We take millions of pictures in my family, so now we have her face everywhere to remind us of her", added Brainard. "We were all saying our goodbyes". When he went to check on her in the morning, he found she had died. "It was sweet. She was waving at her", Ms Brainard told Today.

"She knew she was special", Brainard told the Today show.

Zsa Zsa was up for the title of Ugliest Dog against some fierce competition: a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund mutt, a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin and a Pekingese named Wild Thang.
