The title of the world's ugliest dog goes to a 9-year-old bulldog named Zsa Zsa, who swooped the trophy away from thirteen other hopeful contestants.


The contest was hosted by Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Californa, who announced the winner on their official Twitter account on Sunday.

They added that Zsa Zsa charmed the judges with her beauty and talent. She has a tongue that hangs loosely from her mouth and an adorable underbite.

Netizens rushed to Twitter to share their thoughts, and unfortunately many were offended by the title and didn't understand the real purpose of the contest.

As reported by The New York Times, the contest is a celebration of misunderstood and neglected dogs, with many contestants rescued from kill shelters or puppy mills.

The core idea of the contest is to promote pet adoption. Sadly, the majority of people who adopt pets, go for the young, healthy puppies; for perfect and appealing pets.

Dogs like Zsa Zsa are often overlooked and neglected, and The World's Ugliest Dog Contest hopes to change that, and show that the ugly ducklings are also worthy of a loving family.

According to E-News, Zsa Zsa's owner found her on a pet adoption site, and the poor pooch had spent five years of her life in a puppy mill in Missouri.


The group Underdog Rescue purchased her at a dog auction, and that is were Megan Brainard saw Zsa Zsa and adopted her.

She was named after the Hollywood Icon, Zsa Zsa Gabor, who passed away two years ago at the age of 99.

USA Today reported that this year's contestants gave Zsa Zsa a run for her money. She had to compete with an adorable Chinese Crested Dachshund and a Pekingese named Wild Thang.

Zsa Zsa's forerunner is a Neopolitan Mastiff named Martha who weighs more than 125 pounds and has a lovely droopy face.
