Memorial Grows for Rescue Dog Killed in Stockholm Truck Attack

A rescue dog who was adopted in Dublin and moved to Stockholm, Sweden, with his owners was among the victims when a truck killed four people after ramming into them on Friday night. Markus Krantz and his girlfriend, who live nearby, visited the scene of the attack on Saturday and noticed the dog who lost his life, Iggy, hadn’t yet been recognized there. They returned with a small memorial to Iggy: dog treats, candles and a collar that had belonged to their own dog, who passed away last year. They later returned again to leave a message on behalf of Dogs Aid Dublin, the group Iggy was adopted from in 2012. The touching memorial has now grown to include dog drawings, bones and toys in memory of Iggy. “[Iggy’s family] loved him so much and gave him the best life imaginable. His family would like privacy at this sad and traumatic time,” Dogs Aid posted on Facebook on Sunday. — Read it at BBC News
