Martha a Neopolitan Mastiff who won the 2017 World's Ugliest Dog Contest looked ready to hand over her crown

The dog's owner, Megan Brainard, found the dog through a pet-finding site and she has now won $1,500 for Zsa Zsa's win. But all dogs are not handsome dogs (on the outside, at least). A panel of judges evaluates the ugliness of a dog and decides the victor.

Zsa Zsa, a 9-year-old English bulldog was happily named the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog in the annual contest that took place at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma, CA on June 23 and became an internet sensation! Some people think she's too conventionally cute of a dog to be claiming such a loud title.

Zsa Zsa bested a field of 15 dogs in total to win the World's Ugliest prize.

Other contestants included a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund mutt, a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin and a Pekingese named Wild Thang. The pup was attended to by a glam squad, who painted her nails pink for the event and was elegantly dressed in a matching sparkly collar by an unnamed designer. Zsa Zsa and Brainard traveled all the way from Anoka, Minn., to compete for the crown.

Last year's victor was a 125-pound (57-kilogram) gentle giant named Martha - a Neopolitan Mastiff with gas and a droopy face. It took several surgeries before she was able to see again.
