Dobbie the House Elf

on the road with Animalcouriers

Meet pets travelling to and from France, Spain and Portugal

On our most recent trip taking in France, Spain and Portugal, we met pets of all sizes — from a diminutive rabbit to a Mastiff weighing 60 kilos!

Lucia

Gorgeous Italian Spinone pup Lucia travelled with us from her breeder, Mary, in Fareham to Wendy in the south of France.

Pixie

Rescue cat Pixie travelled with us to her new owners in Spain. We met them in France, near the pretty town of Ceret, which is very close to the Spanish border.

We collected Georgie, a Jackchi (Jack Russell–Chihuahua cross) from Essex, and drove him to Barcelona to rejoin owner Louise.

Yoshi

Fabulous Bengal cat Yoshi has relocated from Sweden to Spain with owner Maria and her husband. We collected him in Sweden and he spent a few days with us in the UK, before continuing on to Oliva in Spain on this trip.

Louie

Lively Collie mix Louie belongs to Denise. We collected him in Norfolk and he travelled with us all the way to Alicante in Spain, where Denise was eagerly awaiting his arrival.

Dobbie

Sam is leaving the Spanish coastal town of Javea to return to Canvey Island. He’s taking with him Dachshund Dobbie.

Dobbie is named after the house elf in Harry Potter — the resemblance is uncanny!

Like his fictional namesake, Dobbie was abused by his previous owners, even suffering a broken leg. Fortunately he's found a good friend and protector in Sam.

Pelut

Pyrenean Mastiff Pelut is a gentle and well behaved giant who charms everyone he meets. We collected him from Armanda in Vallgorguina in Spain, and took him all the way to Renfrewshire in Scotland.

Mirabelle

We met beautiful tabby cat Mirabelle in south west France. She travelled with us to Middlesex, where owners Franke and Sophie have moved for work.

Such a pretty girl!

      Dobbie couldn’t be more appropriately named! We were careful to keep on his good side as we didn’t want to find out about any magical abilities he might have 😀

    Dobbie definitely resembles his namesake! And that rabbit could talk me out of a carrot in an instant, AC. –Curt

      Dobbie couldn’t have been named more appropriately. Luckily he’s living the life of Riley now.

We'd love to hear from you
