English Bulldog Named World's Ugliest Dog Dies At Age 9

Zsa Zsa, the 'World's Ugliest Dog,' dies

Her owner Megan Brainard, from Minnesota, posted the sad news on Zsa Zsa's official Facebook page.

English bulldogs typically live for about 9 years - so Zsa Zsa had a pretty good run.

The nine-year-old Zsa Zsa came from a hardscrabble background, spending five years in a puppy mill in the USA state of Missouri and being sold at auction before she attained ugliest dog immortality.

"I'm in shock still", Brainard told CNN sister network HLN.

On top of that Germany is just paying just a little bit over 1% whereas the United States is paying 4.2% of a much larger GDP.

The beloved English bulldog, known for her iconic look featuring pink toenails and a lolling side-swept tongue, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Tuesday morning. "It's probably going to be the same with her passing".

"She's been staying over at my dad's house". It was attended by Brainard, her husband and their one-year-old daughter, Mareslie. "We were all saying our goodbyes".

"She knew she was special", Brainard told the Today show. "It was sweet. She was waving at her".

They drove 30 hours from their home in California so Zsa Zsa could compete for the crown. "We take millions of pictures in my family, so now we have her face everywhere to remind us of her", added Brainard.

Zsa Zsa's family held a farewell ceremony for her in their back yard.
