Recent winner of World's Ugliest Dog contest dies


(WAND) – Zsa Zsa, who was recently voted as the world’s ugliest dog, has died.

Megan Brainard, the English bulldog’s owner, has confirmed the dog died peacefully while sleeping on Tuesday.

"I picked Zsa Zsa up and took her outside and laid her down in the grass. 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.

The 9-year-old named after Hollywood socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor, went viral after being crowned the World’s Ugliest Dog at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California.

Her owners were happy that in her finals weeks she "was definitely living it up after she won."
