Safe arrival of the Greek contingent

Safe arrival of the Greek contingent

Apart from Ares and Pavlina who have to wait in Calais until they can cross the Channel in early January, the dogs from Greece have all arrived safely in the UK.

Courier M took all six for walks in the woods this morning, and all of them were fascinated by the new sights and smells around them. Even on encountering some local dogs out for their morning constitutionals, our six behaved very well and didn’t let the side down.

Zoe did bark at a cat however — but it’s a cat that’s very disdainful of dogs and didn’t seem to be bothered at all. But Zoe’s new owners might want to look out for that behaviour — and her somewhat ironic fondness for cat poo!

The dogs are now settled in at Treetops Kennels in Guildford, from where they will doubtless be scooped up in no time by their new owners. They’re all lovely, gentle dogs and we wish them well.

    Thank you for delivering our lucky little group! Four were indeed scooped up today by their new families – Zoe, Phaidon, Jenny and Asproulis are all now at home, exploring their new surroundings! Thanos will be picked up by the lovely Hannah who will foster him until his perfect home is found, and Erasmia will go home on Saturday. What a fabulous Christmas present for everyone……

      Hi Carmel, Can we have some follow up photos for the many people who followed our trip and to encourage them to take on an Athenian Rescue dog as well. We have never had so many gentle, calm dogs. Is it the Greek personality we ask? We think maybe it is more to do with they are raised.

    I too would like to thank animalcouriers for their fantastic care of the Greek dogs. Asproulis couldn’t understand why he couldn’t jump over into the back seat on the way home, but the kids managed to block him for most of the journey! Although a little unsure of his surroundings, he is settling in well. He didn’t christen our Christmas tree, which is a relief – infact he was clean throughout the night, which is always an added bonus. He stands by the front and back door a lot, wanting to go out, which he has on several occasions. He has even had a nice walk and wants more! His first reaction to seeing an open expanse of countryside was classic. Thank you again for giving them this chance of happiness.

      We were so impressed at all the dogs, they were all clean for the whole trip, and from the way they rushed at trees and lamposts you could see they were hanging on. Asproulis was our gentle giant!
