A Neapolitan mastiff named Martha has been crowned the winner of the 29th annual World’s Ugliest Dog contest.
The gassy 57 kilo (125lb) beast was a favourite of the northern California crowd from the start, often plopping down on her side on stage with her droopy face spread across the ground when she was supposed to be showing off.

She was rescued when she was nearly blind, but after several surgeries can see again, according to her handler Shirley Zindler.
She lumbered away with $1,500, a flashy trophy and a trip to New York for media appearances, all things she could hardly care less about.

She beat out 13 other dogs, most of them the kind of older, smaller dogs who dominate the competition.
