Who Is The Winner in 2018 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest?

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual contest held in Petaluma, California, as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair, to decide which of the dogs entered in the contest is the ugliest. Along with the title of “The World’s Ugliest Dog”, the winner’s owner receives a check for 1,500 dollar, a trophy and a free trip to New York City.

There is significant media coverage, and as many as 2,000-3,000 people attend the contest during the fair each year. The fair now holds an all-day Dog Lovers’ Festival preceding the evening contest.

The judges used the dog’s hair, defects, presence or absence of teeth, protruding tongues, and other distinctive features as criteria for judgment.

Zsa Zsa, a 9-year-old bulldog from Anoka, Minnesota, won the 2018 contest. Her owner, Megan Brainard, noted the dog had been rescued from a puppy mill. Her distinguishing characteristic was an extremely long tongue that protruded almost to the ground.

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual event, which has a history of 30 years. One of its organizers stated that when it was originally held as a town party, but now it is a national and worldwide event.

For nearly 30 years, the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest has been a testament that the pedigree does not define the pet. Dogs of all breeds and sizes have warmed our hearts and filled our lives with unconditional love. This world-renowned event celebrates the imperfections that make all dogs special and unique.

The contest is a spice of life that will make the world more relaxed and beautiful. While fun and entertaining, the contest speaks to the importance of advocating for the adoration of all animals and the benefits of adopting. Many of the contestant dogs have been rescued from shelters and puppy mills, to find loving homes in the hands of those willing to adopt.
