Bulldog from Minnesota wins World's Ugliest Dog title

Champion Zsa Zsa an English Bulldog is carried by owner Megan Brainard during the World's Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair on Saturday

Zsa Zsa takes the stage at the World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, north of San Francisco, California on June 23, 2018.

Zsa Zsa, an English Bulldog owned by Megan Brainard, stands onstage after being announced the victor of the World's Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif., Saturday, June 23, 2018.

The annual competition, which helps organizers publicize the many pets available for adoption, allows owners to flaunt the imperfections of their dogs.

The dogs and their handlers walk down a red carpet, before being evaluated by a panel of judges.

After her photo was posted on a pet finder website, she was adopted and lives a retired life in Anoka, Minnesota.

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.

Himisaboo, Chinese Crested and Dachshund mix, struts her stuff during the World's Ugliest Dog Contest. After all, we don't want her taking up space where a TRULY ugly dog could shine.

Last year's World's Ugliest Dog prize went to a 3-year-old, 125-pound (57-kilo) Neapolitan Mastiff named Martha. She will also be flown, with Zsa Zsa, to NY to make some public appearances and take part in a photo shoot. (AAP) Last year's victor, Martha.

Zsa Zsa's competitors included a blind, hairless Chinese crested mix, a dreadlocked terrier, a Pekingese named Wild Thang and a formerly overweight pup with sagging 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.
