The victor of the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog competition, Zsa Zsa the English bulldog, has died aged 9.

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. The American Kennel Club said her breed typically lives eight to 10 years Zsa Zsa was 9. Zsa Zsa's nine fruitful years were forged in hardship - she spent her first five years in a puppy mill, before finding her family by way of a nonprofit.

Zsa Zsa gained worldwide attention after winning the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog contest last month, which was held in the San Francisco Bay Area. "I'm in shock still", she told CNN sister network HLN.
