Meet the Stray Puppy Adopted by President Anastasiades (photos)

President Nicos Anastasiades presented to the assembled media, a puppy he adopted from a shelter for stray dogs.

I really love animals, said Anastasiades, presenting the six-month old “Frit”. He appealed to Cypriots to show respect, love and protection towards the animals.

The President said that he decided to adopt the dog a few months after the death of his previous dog, which was killed by a car.

Replying to a journalist who enquired whether small Frit will vote in favor of Anastasiades, the President replied: “I do not care what he votes, but in any case he is still a minor”.
