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.

Facebook Zsa Zsa, the World's Ugliest Dog, tragically passed away just days after winning her esteemed title, her devastated owner confirmed Tuesday afternoon.

The dog's oversized tongue, pronounced underbite, and bowed stance helped her to claim the "top dog" spot at the Petaluma, California competition. "Sweetest dog I've ever met". The dog's owner Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, had received $1,500, a trophy and visit to NY for the win, reported USA Today.

The world's ugliest dog, Zsa Zsa, has passed away, Today reports.

Just over two weeks after she was crowned the World's Ugliest Dog, Zsa Zsa, an English bulldog with a penchant for pink and a perpetually lolling tongue, has died.

"I'm still in shock", she said. We were all saying our goodbyes and [our 15-month-old daughter] Mareslie went right over and gave her a kiss.

"Her mother saw her lovely picture on pet finder and HAD TO HAVE HER!" Zsa Zsa was staying at Brainard's father's house.

Zsa Zsa's family held a farewell ceremony for her in their back yard.

"She knew she was special", Brainard told the Today show.

The contest sounds more negative than it is - its objective is to raise awareness of pet adoption and to show that all dogs are attractive in their own way, and worthy of love.
