Share

Zsa Zsa, the English Bulldog whose long, floppy tongue and protruding underbite earned her the title of 2018's "World's Ugliest Dog" last month, died on Tuesday, her owner says. Brainard said Zsa Zsa's death was "devastating" and that she and her family were still processing her passing, according to the Today show.

A sad day in the world of dogs. She was 9-years-old. "Sweetest dog I've ever met".

U.S. news outlet Today reports the unfortunate - but loveable - pooch died overnight, New Zealand time, at her home in Minnesota with owner Megan Brainard present until the end.

Then her fortune charges on June 23, when she and Brainard won $1,500, "a very large trophy" and a flight to NY to appear on "Today".

The nine-year-old English Bulldog whose lolling tongue and crooked underbite made her the victor back in June died in her sleep, the post stated. "I picked Zsa Zsa up and took her outside and laid her down in the grass". We were all saying our goodbyes and [our 15-month-old daughter] Mareslie went right over and gave her a kiss.

Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog from Minnesota that captured hearts as the cutest World's Ugliest Dog, has died.

Brainard found Zsa Zsa on a pet-finding website.

Despite her appearance, she thought she was a star and was named after the Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor because, according to her owner, she would lie around 'like a handsome model'.

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