Some devastating news is making headlines this week after a world-famous champion passed away on Monday. The story is reaching people across the globe leaving millions in tears.
A 9-year-old English bulldog champion has passed away in her sleep, according to her family. Last month, Zsa Zsa won the title of "World Ugliest Dog" at the 30th annual contest in San Francisco Bay Area.
The pooch won her title by her underbite, long tongue and her rounded, muscular legs. According to her owner, Megan Brainard, she was known for these unique features. With Zsa Zsa's win, Brainard was awarded $1,500.
While Zsa Zsa, who was named after the actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, was crowned the ugliest dog, she did have some fierce competition. Three in particular, according to reports. A bulldog mix with a surplus of wrinkled skin, a Chinese Crested-Dachshund mutt with a black head, and a Pekingese named Wild Fang.
In the end, however, Zsa Zsa took the title, and her owner took home the cash. The reason for this "fun and silly" contest is a great way to advocate that all animals need a loving family, according to organizers of the event.
The loving owner of Zsa Zsa said that she found the pooch on PetFinder and brought her back to her home in Anoka, Minnesota. When Brainard adopted Zsa Zsa, she said that she was five years old and had been previously rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri, according to reports.
