Dog Chews Through Sports Car

There are a lot of dogs with chewing issues out there, but one dog went above and beyond with her compulsive behavior.

WTH? Is The Mangalitsa A Genetic Experiment Gone Wrong?

They look like the love children of a forbidden love between a sheep and a pig with their thick, curly hair and their blunt snouts. Or perhaps a science experiment gone wrong.
