Having picked up Swedish Vallhund Alice in Malmo yesterday, Animalcouriers started the journey back towards the UK via Denmark and Germany.

In Sulsdorf we collected adorable Giant Schauzer puppy Zentaur. He’s off to join his new owners in Lancashire where he’ll be known as Tor.

We then stopped off in the centre of Hamburg where laid-back cat Oreo joined our trip. He’s travelling with us to start a new life in London.

Zentaur has a final hug with his breeder — bet his new owners can't wait to cuddle this big bundle of joy too!
