In March this year Animalcouriers transported a four-month-old puppy from Rimini in Italy to the UK.

At the time we weren’t allowed to reveal her identity, so were forced to rely on artist’s impressions of her instead of taking photos.

Now her owner, Julie, has been in touch to tell us all about the mystery pup and her award-winning ways:

“The ‘Mystery Dog’ is revealed as Pia Dei Sanchi who is a Bracco Italiano (Italian pointer). She will work and show. She entered her first championship show last weekend and won best Puppy in Breed. Thanks to Animalcouriers for taking such expert care of her. We would happily recommend you to other dog owners.”
