World's ugliest dog Zsa Zsa dies just weeks after winning title

World's ugliest dog Zsa Zsa dies just weeks after winning title”

Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog who last month was crowned World's Ugliest Dog, has died.

"Looks are deceiving, some thought she looked scary, but she was the most gentle dog", said Larson.

Zsa Zsa went from enduring years living in a puppy mill to being adopted by a family and finally to winning fame and fans.

Megan Brainard, a resident of Anoka, Minnesota, brought her home after seeing her photo on a pet adoption website and named her after the Hollywood star Zsa Zsa Gabor.

"Her mother saw her handsome picture on pet finder and HAD TO HAVE HER!"

The English Bulldog's lolling tongue and crooked underbite helped her win the title in June. She called Zsa Zsa's passing "devastating".

"From the moment we saw her lovely face, we knew we would be her forever home", Brainard said after her pet won the contest at the Sonoma-Marin County Fair.

Then her fortune charges on June 23, when she and Brainard won $1,500, "a very large trophy" and a flight to NY to appear on "Today".

According to TODAY, once Zsa Zsa's body was returned home on Tuesday morning, Brainard, her husband Jesse and their 15-month-old daughter, Mareslie, held a special farewell ceremony.

Zsa Zsa won the 30th annual contest in the San Francisco Bay Area on June 23. Brainard says the dog was staying with her father and he found she had passed away when he got up in the morning.
