Animalcouriers collected Max, a very handsome Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, from Linda Parke, an award-winning breeder in Norfolk.

He’s off to Malaga in Spain, to live with his new family in the Mijas Golf area, near Fuengirola.

Max has taken to travelling very well indeed, although he’s rather hard to photograph as he won’t stay still!

We’re not sure whether he’ll be taking up the local pastime of golf, but the hills behind Mijas Golf are a wonderful walking place in the cooler months of the year.

His owners are very much looking forward to his arrival.
