Zsa Zsa's competitors included a blind, hairless Chinese crested mix, a dreadlocked terrier, a Pekingese named Wild Thang and a formerly overweight pup with sagging skin. She will also be flown, with Zsa Zsa, to NY to make some public appearances and take part in a photo shoot. "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", the profile reads. Most of the World's Ugliest Dog contestants are up for adoption and the event helps raise awareness of pet rescue and adoption.
