A 9-year-old English bulldog has died just weeks after winning the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog contest.

Zsa Zsa was known for her protruding teeth and especially long tongue. "I'm in shock still", she told CNN sister network HLN.

She is survived by her owner and two "fur brothers" a pug and a Frenchie.

After winning the annual contest in California, Zsa Zsa was flown to NY for an appearance on the morning shows, including NBC's "Today Show" and "Fox & Friends". 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.

An English Bulldog recently dubbed the World's Ugliest Dog has passed away.

The couple and their 15-month-old daughter, Mareslie, held a farewell ceremony for the dog.

Seria A Ronaldo to retire after Juventus 1 hour ago
Cristiano Ronaldo's decision to end a nine-year Real Madrid stay to sign for Juventus is the right move, according to Pele. His dream of winning the World Cup eluded him as Portugal crashed out in the Round of 16.

After her big win, Zsa Zsa's family said, "We are so excited for her, she deserves this". "She is so handsome in my eyes", she said.

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. "We were all saying our goodbyes".

She seemed to relish the victory.

Brainard told TODAY that Zsa Zsa's passing was "devastating".

"She knew she was special".

Organizers of the annual contest say the event is "a fun and silly way to advocate that all animals deserve a safe and loving home".
