Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog, wins World's Ugliest Dog title

World's Ugliest Dog title goes to English bulldog named Zsa Zsa

A nine-year-old English bulldog has been named the 2018 victor of the World's Ugliest Dog competition - and that's no exaggeration.

Christy Gentry, the Sonoma-Marin Fair publicist, said in a statement: "The World's Ugliest Dog Contest is an iconic tradition of the Sonoma-Marin Fair".

The World's Ugliest Dog contest-now in its 30th year-aims to celebrate diversity among pooches. This world-renowned event celebrates the imperfections that make all dogs special and unique.

Some of this year's contestants had hairless bodies, others had lolling tongues.

The 2018 contest included a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund, a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin and a Pekingese named Wild Thang.




Zsa Zsa's owner, Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, was chosen to receive the cash prize of $1,500 (€1,285) in the competition, which has attracted significant media coverage in the past few years.

A 125-pound gentle giant Martha, a Neopolitan Mastiff with gas and a droopy face, won last year's competition. The dogs strutted their stuff for a panel of judges who selected the very finest specimen from the monstrous mutts.

Zsa Zsa spent five years in a puppy farm before she was adopted by Ms Brainard, who put the win down to her charming the judges. She will also be flown, with Zsa Zsa, to NY to make some public appearances and take part in a photo shoot.

Past winners have been rescued from animal shelters and puppy mills.

Himisaboo, a Chinese Crested and Dachshund mix, walks onstage during the World's Ugliest Dog Contest. It is usually held on Friday nights, but organizers moved the competition to Saturday in an effort to draw a bigger audience.
