Three-legged dog helps turn young boy's life around

Help

A three-legged dog who helped transform the life of a seven-year-old disabled boy has been nominated for an award at Crufts.

Haatchi had his leg and tail amputated after someone tied him to a railway line and was then hit by a train.

Owen's father Will Hoskins told BBC Radio 5 live's Tony Livesey that his son has formed a "magical connection" with the dog.
