English bulldog from Minnesota wins World's Ugliest Dog title

Brainard found Zsa Zsa on a pet-finding site. Here she stands onstage after being announced the winner

Going into this year's World Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, Linda Elmquist of Tucson, Arizona, had high hopes that her dog could make another run at the title.

A bulldog named Zsa Zsa won a coveted honor on Saturday: she's this year's ugliest dog.

Dogs without hair, dogs with lolling tongues and other imperfections from all over the U.S., as well as other countries, participate in the fair.

The dogs and their handlers walked down a red carpet, as a panel of judges evaluated them.

The dog's owner Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, will receive $1500 for Zsa Zsa's win.

Ms Brainard found Zsa Zsa, who has an underbite and a noticeably long tongue, on a pet search website.

She fought off stiff competition from Wild Thang - a Pekingese with a shit-ton of fur - and Rascal Deux, which looks like a cross between a bat and some Poundland hair extensions.

The organizers of the World's Ugliest Dog competition aim to promote dog adoption.

As well as Zsa Zsa, this year's competitors included a blackhead-covered Chinese-crested dachshund mutt and a bulldog bitser with excess wrinkly skin.

The contest is usually held on a Friday night, but organisers moved this year's competition to Saturday in an effort to draw a bigger audience.

The World's Ugliest Dog contest-now in its 30th year-aims to celebrate diversity among pooches.
