A Hampshire dog with a remarkable story is to receive a special award from the International Fund for Animal Welfare at the House of Lords. Anatolian shepherd dog Haatchi suffered horrific injuries as a puppy after being tied to a railway line and hit by a train.
After surviving the amputation of a rear leg and his tail, Haatchi struggled to find a new home. His future looked bleak before he was eventually adopted by Colleen Drummond, her fiance Will Howkins and his seven-year-old son Owen, in Basingstoke.
