A builder decided to re-home his dog – after the mischievous pet chewed through part of his £80,000 Aston Martin.

Royston Grimstead, 42, came home to find that border collie spaniel cross Luce had gnawed at the fibreglass wheel arch of his luxury motor.

Mr Grimstead saw that his four-year-old pet ‘was covered in white stuff’ so gave her away the very next day – after claiming Luce also didn’t get on with his other dog.

The impatient pet owner, from Chedzoy, Somerset, said: ‘She had chewed out a huge chunk. I just laughed. I mean, what else could I do?

‘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.

‘I’m not a crier and she knew she had done something wrong because she had this guilty look on her face.’

Divorced Mr Grimstead, from Chedzoy, Somerset, got Luce three years ago, and claimed she had never snacked on any of his possessions before she chewed on his car last Wednesday.

He justified giving away the border collie by stating that Luce does not get on with his other dog, a 10-year-old border collie called Jess.

Mr Grimstead gave Luce away by putting an advert on a dog rehoming website last week. Her new owners also live in Somerset.

He added that he was already considering re-homing her before she chewed at his vehicle – which he described as ‘the final straw’.

  1. Perhaps the lesson is to get the type of dog that suits your lifestyle, Collies need to be stimulated not left alone all day. That said, if one of my dogs ate my car I would be looking to see what I was doing wrong, after I finished laughing. 🙂

    • Some people get pets without thinking I used to have dogs and chose them according to me surroundings but I did have a border collie who was out of control and she had 2 acres to play around in
