Zeus, Chloe and Phaidra — and Caesar who still needs a new home

Zeus is a fine-looking chap who's on his way with Animalcouriers from the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens to his new home in the UK. Also on board are sisters Chloe and Phaidra.

Collecting dogs from the Filozoikos Shelter

This trip we are bringing a number of dogs to the UK from the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens, on whose behalf the UK-based Friends of Animals — Nea Filadelfia group works extremely hard, especially finding new homes for the dogs.

Billy the Pug is moving to London

Billy the Pug joined our trip to the UK in Athens. This character dog was brought to us by his owner Eva, and her mum. Pharmacist Eva is moving to London to work, and Billy is going too. While we checked Billy's paperwork Eva told us he likes sleeping, tends to snore, and doesn't like to be woken up too quickly. Sounds like a typical man to us! we said, and everyone had a good chuckle. Billy with Eva and her mum Billy gets settled in for the trip

Sam is with Alexander

Animalcouriers delivered Sam, the fourth of our Raisdoodles puppy passengers, to Alexander in Glyfada yesterday evening. There was great excitement all round. If our experience on the trip is anything to go by, Sam will be a very loving and lively companion for Alexander. Sam gets a very warm welcome… …and plenty of cuddles
