Zsa Zsa was crowned at the World's Ugliest Dog competition, an annual event at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif.

Zsa Zsa won the title on Saturday in the competition where dogs with hairless bodies and lolling tongues flaunt their imperfections.

The long-tongued English Bulldog was declared the victor of the competition, now in its 30 year. Ann Lewis's dog Wild Thang was one of the hopefuls.

World Cup match report Nigeria v Iceland 22 June 2018
The 2018 World Cup came a little too soon for the Super Eagles, but they will be a force to be reckoned with in the near future.

Last year a three-year old Neopolitan Mastiff named Martha took the crown.

During the competition, she often plopped down on her side on stage with her droopy face spread across the ground when she was supposed to be showing off.

While older and smaller dogs have traditionally been the best performers, this year's World's Ugliest Dog prize went to a three-year-old, 125-pound (57-kilos) Neapolitan Mastiff named Martha. Some people think she's too conventionally cute of a dog to be claiming such a loud title.

This year's dogs include a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund mutt and a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin.

Good causes underline the World's Ugliest Dog awards.
