English bulldog Sza Sza crowned the ugliest dog in the world

by

A 9-year-old English bulldog named Sza Sza won Saturday night in the San Francisco area, the competition for the ugliest dog in the world.

The unsightly canine has won a US $1,500 purse from owner Megan Brainard of Minnesota. According to the organizing committee of the competition, the woman found Sza Sza at a pet adoption site.

Aspirants of the title had to walk with their masters on a red carpet and were judged by a panel of judges. Imperfections, such as uneven coats or hanging tongues, were rewarded.

Among them is a bastard – a mixture of dachshund and Chinese crested dog – covered with black dots, or a cross bulldog with an impressive amount of wrinkled and dangling skin.

Last year, it was Martha, a 57-kilogram (125-pound) docile Neapolitan man with a heavy face and flatulence, who had been chosen by the judges.

The competition, held at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, north of San Francisco, was in its 30th year.
