Sometimes they look like Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog who was crowned this year's World's Ugliest Dog.

Dogs in the annual competition flaunt their imperfections - some have hairless bodies, others have lolling tongues.

Zsa Zsa's owner, Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, will earn a pretty penny for her victory-a $1,500 prize, to be precise.

The bulldog, whose tongue hangs out of the side of her mouth and nearly touches the ground, was adopted by Megan Brainard, told CNN that "from the moment we saw her attractive face, we knew we would be her forever home".

England will face Panama in their second group game in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday. He said: "It's a bit of fun for the World Cup ". England are a bit more direct than Belgium.

Zsa Zsa was a puppy mill dog for five years in Missouri. Zsa Zsa won the contest.

If you're worrying about the feelings of all the little four-legged guys taking part (I was; I'm not going to lie) then worry not - the ugliest dog competition aims to raise awareness of doggy adoptions and reminds people that all dogs, no matter how unconventional they may look, deserve to be loved.

The event, at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds, north of San Francisco, helps organisers publicise that many pets are available for adoption.

"Wild Thang" was one of Zsa Zsa's fiercest rivals.

Ms Ardern posted a photo on her Instagram account showing her and partner Clarke Gayford with the baby at Auckland City Hospital. At 37, Ardern is the world's youngest female leader, and is the second elected world leader to give birth while in office.

"She has come so far and she is just so lovely in my eyes", said Brainard, who operates a dog-and-cat grooming shop.

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

During the competition, she often plopped down on her side on stage with her droopy face spread across the ground when she was supposed to be showing off.

It was a ruff night for her competitors, who included a bulldog with furrowed excess skin, a matted ball of fluff called Wild Thang (a Pekingese) and a Chinese Crested-Dachsund with blackheads.

And he listened to the whole song, and he said: "It's very nice", he said. Sir Paul sits down at the piano and plays When I'm 64.

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