  • Zsa Zsa an English Bulldog stood onstage after being announced the winner of the World's Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair in Petaluma C

The victor of the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog competition, Zsa Zsa the English bulldog, has died aged 9.

Zsa Zsa the 9-year-old English bulldog stops by 'Fox & Friends'. Zsa Zsa herself was rescued from a puppy mill and put up for adoption on PetFinder.com, which is where Brainard found her, and subsequently named her after the Hollywood legend Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Zsa Zsa's 15 minutes in the limelight are over: the copiously drooling English bulldog named the World's Ugliest Dog just weeks ago has died.

The nine-year-old rescue pup won for her lolling tongue and protruding teeth.

"She's been staying over at my dad's house", owner Megan Brainard told TODAY. She called Zsa Zsa's passing "devastating".


After her big win, Zsa Zsa's family said, "We are so excited for her, she deserves this".

Brainard says Zsa Zsa never really showed much excitement, but that she knew she was special. We were all saying our goodbyes and Mareslie went right over and gave her a kiss. "It was sweet. She was waving at her", Brainard said.

On June 23, Zsa Zsa won the World's Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma-Marin Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in the San Francisco Bay Area community of Petaluma, Calif.

"From the moment we saw her lovely face, we knew we would be her forever home", her owners said in a statement on the contest's website.
