The nine-year-old spent her final weeks travelling and making television appearances.

After earning the mantle of "World's Ugliest Dog" just last month, English Bulldog Zsa Zsa died Tuesday morning. "I'm in shock still", she told CNN sister network HLN.

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.

Brainard told the Today show she drove 30 hours from her home in Anoka, Minn., to give Zsa Zsa the opportunity to participate in the contest, which is put on every year to raise awareness for dog adoption. She called Zsa Zsa's passing "devastating".

The dog won the ugliness title at a contest last month in Petaluma, California.

"From the moment we saw her attractive face, we knew we would be her forever home", her owners said in a statement on the contest's website.

She picked Zsa Zsa up and took her outside and laid her down in the grass for the family to say their goodbyes. Brainard named the sweet, lovable pup after the Hollywood legend Zsa Zsa Gabor, because the pretty pooch enjoyed lounging on the couch "like a lovely model". "She's so handsome - ugly", Ms Brainard said after winning the title against some stiff global competition. "She never really showed much excitement but yes, she was definitely living it up after she won".

Zsa Zsa was known for her protruding teeth and especially long tongue.
