'When people gave up on Wylie, Wylie refused to give up on people.'For a street dog born in the city of Kandahar, Afghanistan, to be crowned top dog at Scruffts, a competition for rescued crossbreeds held during Crufts, the largest dog show on earth, is nothing short of a miracle.
But for Wylie, the gentle, cropped eared ball of fur, miracles seemed to happen quite regularly.
Beaten and abused while being used as a bait dog, Wylie suffered terrible injuries that needed urgent treatment.
Rescued close to death, with hacked off ears and a severed tail, he was attended to by soldiers who feared he would not last the night.
Astonishingly he did, only to return days later with new injuries.
However a lifeline came when he was handed over to animal welfare Charity Nowzad and flown to Britain in the hope of finding a new life.
But would anyone take a chance on a seemingly nervous and undomesticated stray?
Luckily for Wylie his biggest adventure yet was about to begin...This is the incredible and heart-warming story, full of tragedy and triumph, of a dog who never gave up hope.
