Dog lover Gritta is YouTube hit

A dog lover is swiftly becoming a YouTube sensation after uploading a video of her playing with her four-legged friends - many of whom have disabilities.

Gritta Goetz, who works at an animal sanctuary in Lanzenhainer, Germany, has adopted more than two dozen dogs, with eight confined to wheelchairs.

She says the dogs enjoy fetching a stick: "They are fast enough to get it. And the smallest paralysed dog is the one who can protect the stick against everybody. If she gets it, even the leader has no chance any more."
