Zsa Zsa, the English bulldog from Minnesota that captured hearts as the cutest World's Ugliest Dog, has died.

She passed away peacefully in her sleep Tuesday morning, as reported by Today.

Zsa Zsa, who is named after actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, spent five years in a puppy mill in Missouri before being adopted by Brainard and her husband.

Zsa Zsa won the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog contest a little over a week before she crossed the rainbow bridge Tuesday morning.

Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova
Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich . She probably should have done her homework on Williams, who crushed the upset-minded Italian after dropping the first set.

"I'm in shock still", Brainard told CNN sister network HLN. "It's probably going to be the same with her passing". Zsa Zsa was staying at Brainard's father's house. "We take millions of pictures in my family, so now we have her face everywhere to remind us of her", Brainard told Today. "We were all saying our goodbyes".

Brainard described the dog's death as "devastating" in an interview with Today.com, which first reported the news.

On June 23, Zsa Zsa won the World's Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma-Marin Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in the San Francisco Bay Area community of Petaluma, Calif.

Zsa Zsa is known for her pink toenails and long tongue.

"From the moment we saw her attractive face, we knew we would be her forever home", Brainard said at the time.
