Zsa Zsa takes the stage at the World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, north of San Francisco, California on June 23, 2018.

Christy Gentry, a spokeswoman for the event, said: "The world's ugliest dog contest is an iconic tradition of the Sonoma-Marin Fair".

The dogs walk down a red carpet and are evaluated by a panel of judges, with the victor taking home $1500.

"She was a puppy mill dog for 5 years in Missouri, and instead of placing her in a loving home at her end of breeding, she was put in a dog auction", Zsa Zsa's profile on the competition website reads. The fair will also make an in-kind donation to Underdog Rescue.

While older and smaller dogs have traditionally been the best performers, this year's World's Ugliest Dog prize went to a three-year-old, 125-pound (57-kilos) Neapolitan Mastiff named Martha. It took several surgeries before she was able to see again.

This year's dogs include a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund mutt and a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin.
