A car fanatic gave his pet dog away after he was left distraught when she chewed a hole through the wheel arch of his prized £80,000 Aston Martin.
Builder Royston Grimstead, 42, was devastated when he came home to find his border collie spaniel cross Luce had chewed through the fibreglass panel of his luxury car - causing £3,000 of damage.
Mr Grimstead, from Chedzoy, Somerset, said he had already been considering re-homing the dog, which he said did not get along with his other dog, but the damage to the car was the final straw.
A dog behaviour expert has suggested it was likely Luce, who Mr Grimstead claimed had never chewed any of his possessions before, went for the car after she became stressed while her owner was away.
Mr Grimstead said: 'I came home and saw her covered in white stuff and I thought she had got a bird and it was feathers - but it was the fibreglass from the car.
'She had chewed out a huge chunk. I just laughed. I mean, what else could I do? I'm not a crier and she knew she had done something wrong because she had this guilty look on her face.'

I’d take that dog in a minute. Just look at that face.
What, no ejector seat?
For the want of some attention and a dollar chew toy an Austin Martin was trashed.
I’m siding with the dog on this one.
When my black Lab was a puppy he would have eaten the entire fender, scratched up the hood, and holed the tyre. Then he would have napped for 45 minutes and started on the next part of the car...
Yum yum. Better than a big mak?
He must have ran over a big Mac or roadkill or sumthin’,, damn,, nice looking dog.
Judging by the grime on the car and the tire wear, I am inclined to believe that this car owner should not be allowed to have any pets as well as an Astim Martin. I think that’s he’s better suited for a bicycle or just public transportation.
It’s a “she” dog, but her face looks just like the male Golden Retriever I lost last year to Pancreatic Cancer.
She has tears in her eyes, poor thing.
Looks like it was a bad match of dog and owner. He had a dog that is a working dog and needs something to do to occupy its time. Absentee ownership is not good for any dog, IMO; it’s particularly bad for Border Collie-type dogs. She’ll probably be a great dog for someone else.
It’s was a dog. That’s what they do.
Send him to me.
He’ll never be yelled at and never want.
Ill take him just the way he is...
Terrible lisp you have...
“Judging by the grime on the car”
That’s not grime. That is where the dog pawed the car.
