And it ended up being worth it after her pup beat out 13 other ugly doggos to win the grand prize of $1,500 as well as a special trophy.

Among Zsa Zsa's winning traits: a tongue as long and unwieldy as Trump's neckties, a gait as wide and boxy as a dump truck, and teeth as jagged as the Black Hills.

Like most years, bald Chinese cresteds and churlish Chihuahuas featured in the close run competition but Zsa Zsa won the judges' hearts.

Zsa Zsa, rescued from a Missouri puppy mill, now calls Anoka, Minnesota, home. The dogs and their handlers walk down a red carpet as a panel of judges score them.

NBC News correspondent and contest judge Jo Ling Kent, explained: "It was a very hard decision, we loved all of the dogs".

Zsa Zsa's victory unseats "Martha", a supposedly gassy-yet-gentle 125-pound Neapolitan Mastiff that took home the prize previous year.

The contest is in its 30th year.

No dog is ugly.

Zsa Zsa-named for actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, who passed away in 2016 and who nearly certainly would have been honored at the namesake-took home the prize at the annually held contest in Petaluma, California, over the weekend.
