An English bulldog with an underbite and muscular, rounded front legs won the 30th annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest on June 23, 2018.
The 9-year-old winner, named Zsa Zsa, was found via a pet-finding site by owner Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minn., according to a biography supplied for the contest. Brainard will receive $1,500 for Zsa Zsa’s victory.
The cuddly competition, which helps organizers publicize that many pets are available for adoption, allowed owners to flaunt the imperfections of their dogs. It was held at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma, Calif., north of San Francisco.
Some of this year’s contestants had hairless bodies, others had lolling tongues. Others vying for the title included a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund mutt, a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin and a Pekingese named Wild Thang.
A 125-pound gentle giant Martha, a Neapolitan Mastiff with a droopy face, won last year’s competition.
