Newly crowned ‘World’s Ugliest Dog’ Zsa Zsa dies

"I'm sad to share that Zsa Zsa passed away in her sleep last night", reads a message from her owner, Megan Brainard, a pet groomer in Minnesota. He says she appeared fine the day before, so it was a shock. "It's kind of like when she won [the World's Ugliest Dog contest]".

Zsa Zsa herself was rescued from a puppy mill and put up for adoption on PetFinder.com, which is where Brainard found her, and subsequently named her after the Hollywood legend Zsa Zsa Gabor.
