Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, Zsa Zsa's owner, called the dog's death "devastating", as reported by Today, July 11.

"She is just so ugly, she's handsome", Brainard told the New York Times last month.

One June 23, Zsa Zsa - with her barrel chest, slobbering tongue and a pink manicure - won the 30th annual World's Ugliest Dog contest in California.

Its upper teeth were nearly horizontal and it also had a pronounced underbite.

Brainard says Zsa Zsa never really showed much excitement, but that she knew she was special.

Journalists of NBC said that the dog MS, MS, received the title of ugliest dog in the world died.

The dog mum said she named Zsa Zsa after the Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, as the pup enjoyed lounging on the couch "like a handsome model". The dog had previously been rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri when she was 5 years old, according to the newspaper. "We were all saying our goodbyes". She named the dog in honor of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. "We take millions of pictures in my family, so now we have her face everywhere to remind us of her", added Brainard.
