Her death was announced by her owner, Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minn., who said the dog had died in her sleep.

Brainard told NBC's "Today" show website that the 9-year-old dog had been staying with her father. "I haven't even processed her winning and fame".

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

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

"Looks are deceiving, some thought she looked scary, but she was the most gentle dog", said Larson. The English bulldog spent her first five years in a puppy mill in Missouri before she was saved by Underdog Rescue, a nonprofit pet rescue rehabilitation and placement organization. She bested 13 other dogs to claim the top spot.

Zsa Zsa' winnings included $1,500, "a very large trophy" and a flight to NY, where she and Brainard appeared on the "Today" show. Brainard took him a year later.

Zsa Zsa was up for the title of Ugliest Dog against some fierce competition: a blackhead-covered Chinese crested-dachshund mutt, a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin and a Pekingese named Wild Thang.
