Tributes Paid To Irish Dog Killed In Swedish Terrorist Attack
Four people tragically died when a lorry was driven through a busy pedestrian shopping district, while 15 others were injured.
One of the victims of the attack was a rescue dog called Iggy, who was originally adopted from Dogs Aid in Dublin.
Iggy moved with his family to Stockholm in 2012 and was being walked in the city when he was killed.
Dogs Aid revealed the sad news on Facebook and extended their condolences to Iggy's devastated family.
They wrote: "We are deeply saddened to learn that one of our dogs was killed in the terrorist attack in Stockholm.
"Dogs Aid Iggy found his beautiful home in Sweden in 2012. R.I.P. beautiful, special boy.
"Run to the Bridge dear one, all of your Dogs Aid friends will be waiting for you. One hundred thousand stars will light your way."
They continued to say that many animal lovers are marking the spot where the lurcher died.
They said: "A memorial in tribute to Iggy where he took his last walk is now full of flowers, candles and candy. Our thoughts are with Iggy’s family.
"They loved him so much and gave him the best life imaginable. His family would like privacy at this sad and traumatic time."
