IT was love at first sight.
Queen Sofia has adopted a three-year-old ‘mutt’ from a Granada animal charity after she spotted it at a pet fair in Madrid.
Paquita, a mixed breed dog, had been abandoned at the Ladridos Vagabundos Association and needed a new home.
“Now our little Paquita is living in a palace,” said a spokesman for the volunteer-run association.
“The Queen came over and said she reminded her of a dog she’d had that died of old age.
“Then she said she wanted to adopt her. We are very happy the queen was interested in adopting a ‘mutt’.”
