After nine-month journey, Melek finds forever home in Omaha
Melek had to have her left hind leg amputated after she was hit by a car in Turkey. Welton, who adopted her officially on Friday, says he shares a kinship with Melek: He also has been struck by cars, while on his motorcycle.

A three-legged dog who traveled from Turkey to Omaha only needed to get one paw in the door before her new owner realized she was a keeper.
Melek, a 2-year-old English setter-mixed breed, was officially adopted Friday from the Nebraska Humane Society after a two-week trial in Dave Welton's home.
