Zsa Zsa dies weeks after being dubbed 'World's Ugliest Dog'

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.

The 9-year-old pooch passed away in her sleep Monday night, her owner, Megan Brainard, told the Star Tribune.

"I picked Zsa Zsa up and took her outside and laid her down in the grass", the pet owner shared. 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.

"I'm in shock still", Brainard told CNN sister network HLN.

Recognizable by her underbite and long, droopy tongue, Zsa Zsa earned the coveted title of "World's Ugliest Dog" at the competition in Petaluma, California on June 23. "It's probably going to be the same with her passing".

She took home first prize - a trophy, $1,500 ($AU2020) in prize winnings and the hearts of everyone. "We were all saying our goodbyes". "It was sweet. She was waving at her", Ms Brainard told Today.

Brainard had recently brough Zsa Zsa on the Today show to celebrate her victory, just days before her sudden, devastating death. "She never really showed much excitement but yes, she was definitely living it up after she won".
