  • Dead English bulldog Zsa Zsa

Just over two weeks after she was crowned the World's Ugliest Dog, Zsa Zsa, an English bulldog with a penchant for pink and a perpetually lolling tongue, has died.

"I'm in shock still", Brainard told CNN sister network HLN. "I haven't even processed her winning and fame". English bulldog named Zha-Zha, victor of the ugliest dog in the world died at the age of nine years.

The World's Ugliest Dog title holder died early in the morning.


Brainard, who won $1,500 for Zsa Zsa's victory, said she found the dog - named after the late actress Zsa Zsa Gabor - on a pet-finding site, according to the contest bio.

Zsa Zsa was about nine years old when she passed away, which is about the life expectancy for the breed. She said Zsa Zsa had not been having any health issues. "We take millions of pictures in my family, so now we have her face everywhere to remind us of her", added Brainard. She spent the first five years in a puppy mill in Missouri before she was put up for auction and bought by a rescue group.

The annual competition started out as a parody of the more traditional pure-breed dog contests.
