She seems like an evolutionary anomaly in every sense of the word-or, at the very least, a cruel joke of nature: Meet Zsa Zsa, a nine-year-old English bulldog who was just crowned the "world's ugliest dog". She's seen here with her owner, Megan Brainard of Minnesota.

Zsa Zsa-named for actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, who passed away in 2016 and who nearly certainly would have been honored at the namesake-took home the prize at the annually held contest in Petaluma, California, over the weekend. The victor takes home $1,500.

Zsa Zsa - who was rescued from a Missouri puppy mill five years ago - is named after glamorous Hungarian actor Zsa Zsa Gabor, and that namesake flair was on display via pink toenails and a rhinestone collar.

Then Zsa Zsa's current owner bought her from the animal rescue group. "From the moment we saw her lovely face, we knew we would be her forever home".


The special dog won a trophy and a $1,500 prize.

On Sunday, Zsa Zsa flew from San Francisco to NY for an appearance on the Today show. The Brainards flew on Jet Blue - which allowed the dog to sit in her own seat in the cabin, Zsa Zsa's owner wrote on the dog's Facebook page.
