Megan Brainard of Anoke, Minnesota, owner of the 9-year-old homely hound, confirmed that Zsa Zsa died in her sleep in a Facebook on Tuesday night.

Zsa Zsa's winnings include a trophy and $1,500 - a cash amount that was also given to Underdog Rescue, the group that rescued her.

JOSH EDELSON via Getty Images Zsa Zsa was crowned World's Ugliest Dog last month in a competition meant to raise awareness about rescue pets.


With her crooked teeth, underbite and tongue hanging out of her mouth, Zsa Zsa won over the competition's judges and collected a $1,500 prize as the victor of the 30th annual contest. "It was sweet. She was waving at her", Brainard told Today. She called Zsa Zsa's passing "devastating". We were all saying our goodbyes and Mareslie went right over and gave her a kiss. "We take millions of pictures in my family, so now we have her face everywhere to remind us of her", added Brainard. He says she appeared fine the day before, so it was a shock.

"From the moment we saw her lovely face, we knew we would be her forever home", Brainard said.

Brainard and Zsa Zsa drove for 30 hours from their home in Anoka, Minn., to compete in the World's Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif. "She never really showed much excitement, but yes, she was definitely living it up after she won", Ms Brainard said.
