Meet the Dog Addicted To Curry
A curry-mad dog has been banned from his favourite food after wolfing down too much of the spicy stuff.
Pauline, 48, of Chorlton Green, said Dante got a taste for curry when a former lodger started to feed him leftovers from takeaways.
Chorlton pooch Dante has such a taste for tandoori that he refuses to eat dog food and regularly turns up outside takeaways and restaurants begging for leftovers.
Now vets have told his owner Pauline Rawsterne to put him on a strict no-curry diet because it has given him a tummy problem.
Luckily for Dante, Mohammed Asdar Ali took pity on him and created a healthy chicken balti which will not inflame the dog's tummy problems.
Ali said: "No curry-lover should be deprived of their favourite food, so we came up with something that Dante can enjoy without giving himself any more health problems."
Dante was also put on a fitness regime to get him down to size because of the pounds he had put due to his unhealthy diet.
"He's in good shape now - he even comes out with me on my bike rides," Pauline said.
