A nine-year-old English bulldog called Zsa Zsa has won this year's world's ugliest dog contest.
The annual competition, which helps organizers publicize the many pets available for adoption, allows owners to flaunt the imperfections of their dogs.
The dogs walk down a red carpet and are evaluated by a panel of judges.
Zsa Zsa's owner, Megan Brainard of Anoka, MN will get an impressive $1, 500 for the win and of course, bragging rights for her precious pooch!
