  • Champion Zsa Zsa an English Bulldog is carried by owner Megan Brainard during the World's Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair on Saturday

To refer to it by its full name, that's the "Sonoma-Marin Fair World's Ugliest Dog Contest".

The dog's owner, Megan Brainard, found the dog through a pet-finding site and she has now won $1,500 for Zsa Zsa's win.

With a seemingly three-inch-long lolling tongue and a jutting jaw, Zsa Zsa prevailed over 13 other contestants in the Ugliest Dog contest, a mainstay of the fair for more than 30 years. The dogs and their handlers walk down a red carpet.

The 9-year-old victor, named Zsa Zsa, was found via a pet-finding site by owner Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minn., according to a biography supplied for the contest. The tongue dangled at least four inches under her jaw while Zsa Zsa rested, similar to the melting watch of Salvador Dali's painting "The Persistence of Memory".

The organizers of the World's Ugliest Dog competition aim to promote dog adoption.

Last year's victor was a 57-kilogram gentle giant named Martha - a Neopolitan mastiff with gas and a droopy face.

At 9-years-old, Zsa Zsa is a victor.
