The nine-year-old canine died in her sleep Tuesday morning, owner Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota told USA media.

With her floppy tongue, crooked teeth and pink manicure, Zsa Zsa captured the hearts of the judges at the annual contest in Petaluma, California. She lived life as an underdog, spending five years in a puppy mill before being rescued.

Brainard adopted her and named her after the actress Zsa Zsa Gabor because she enjoyed lounging about like a attractive model.

Brainard told NBC's "Today" that she was "still in shock" over Zsa Zsa's death.

Brainard named the sweet, lovable pup after the Hollywood legend Zsa Zsa Gabor, because the pretty pooch enjoyed lounging on the couch "like a attractive model". The hound was in good health and had been staying with Brainard's father, who woke up Tuesday to find she had passed, she said.

Soon after, the Brainards found her on PetFinder.com. She said her family held a small memorial for the pooch, known to love Slim Jims and burritos from the Mexican fast-food chain Chipotle.
