Amazing dog with long neck looks like giraffe or dinosaur after car accident
An amazing dog was left with a long neck comparable to a giraffe or long-necked dinosaur after a tragic car accident.
Brodie, who is an Azawakh, a sighthound breed related to the greyhound and whippet breeds, was rescued by Louisa Crook as a puppy after he was hit by a car and then neglected.
Unfortunately, Brodie had to have one front leg and shoulder amputated following the accident.
Azawakhs already have extremely long necks, but the amputation makes Brodie look even more elongated.
Marketing consultant Louisa, from the Middle East, described Brodie as "the most beautiful dog" she has ever seen, despite his condition since the accident.
She explained: "I’m a sighthound fan and Azawakhs are one of my favourite breeds.
“Even in the state Brodie was in when I first saw him – unable to walk and in such pain – he still took my breath away.
“I had never seen an Azawakh in the flesh before then as they are not a common breed.
“He does have a very long neck, but it looks ridiculously long from certain angles because his missing shoulder makes him slimmer at the base of his neck.

"So sometimes it looks like he is just one big neck with legs attached, albeit only three of them."
Since Louisa saw him, the pair have formed a "special bond" as he has taught her "not to give up so easily" after persevering through the hard times.
Thankfully, he seems to be happy with his new home.

She said: “He is incredibly sweet to me. He loves early mornings in the kitchen with me when none of my other dogs is awake and he gets me all to himself.
"He is the only morning person I have in my life.
“People always ask what he is when they see him. Not too many people know the breed. And then of course, what happened to him was that he lost a leg. Mostly, people love his freckles."
