Meet Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog from Anoka who was crowned champion of the World's Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, California on Saturday. 

We had no idea there was such a competition, but hey, the dog is a world champ and no one can take that away from her. 

Zsa Zsa is very ugly. 

Her tongue hangs out of the side of her mouth, nearly dragging on the ground. She's got buck teeth and a classic underbite. The claws on one of her front paws are different colors. And since she's a bulldog, we'll just go ahead and assume she sounds like a car without a muffler when she sleeps.

The 9-year-old bulldog is owned by Megan Brainard of Anoka, who also owns K9 & Kitty Kutters, a pet grooming shop with locations in Andover and Minneapolis. 

According to Zsa Zsa's profile from the competition, she spent the first five years of her life in a Missouri puppy mill before being auctioned off to a rescue group, at which point Brainard saw her and "had to have her." 

Congrats, Zsa Zsa!
