Japan smitten by puppy love

Jul. 13 – A puppy born with a heart-shaped pattern on his coat becomes a symbol of luck in northern Japan.

The long-coated baby male chihuahua was born in May, one of a litter, to a breeder in Odate, northern Japan. Dog shop owner Emiko Sakurada says it’s the first time a puppy with the marks has been born out of a thousand she has bred. Michelle Carlile-Alkhouri reports.
