Iran's Unwelcome Dogs Find Care at Rare Shelter

Man's best friend is seen as anything but in Iran, where city workers gun down strays and conservatives view pet dogs as a corrupting Western influence.

Islamic tradition holds cats in high esteem, and in much of the Muslim world people leave food out for feral felines. Stray dogs, on the other hand, are often seen as a public nuisance – overgrown rats with wagging tails.

San Luis Obispo, California, radio personality Adam Montiel said he noticed his dog was getting into the fridge and freezer. "We couldn't figure out how she was doing it, so I hooked up a GoPro to find out," he writes on YouTube.

What happens when your mom is an animal lover? You'll probably be one too, and little baby Alia is getting started early.
