Love at the first sight

How many of us have fallen in love with a mongrel to the point of wanting to take it home? That was what happened to english tourist Debbie Edwards when she saw a mongrel terrier begging for food at a restaurant in Marmaris, Turkey. She couldn’t resist the dog’s look and decided she wanted to bring him home. She paid £3500 to fly him with her and now Hector is living in New Port, Wales with the family.
