A nine-year-old English bulldog has been named this year's World's Ugliest Dog at a contest in California.

Wild Thang, a Pekingese, stands onstage during the World's Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, Calif., Saturday, June 23, 2018.

Dogs without hair, dogs with lolling tongues and other imperfections from all over the United States, as well as other countries, participate in the fair.

During the competition, now in its 30th year, the canines flaunt their imperfections as they walk down a red carpet with their handlers and are evaluated by a panel of judges.

Zsa Zsa's owner, Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, will earn a pretty penny for her victory-a $1,500 prize, to be precise. Brainard found Zsa Zsa on a pet-finding site, according to the contest bio. Zsa Zsa strutting her stuff during the competition.

At 9-years-old, Zsa Zsa is a victor.

It was a ruff night for her competitors, who included a bulldog with furrowed excess skin, a matted ball of fluff called Wild Thang (a Pekingese) and a Chinese Crested-Dachsund with blackheads. Most of the World's Ugliest Dog contestants are up for adoption and the event helps raise awareness of pet rescue and adoption.
