Desy travelled with Animalcouriers from Florence in Italy last month. She spent 10 days in kennels, waiting for her new home in Chesterfield to be ready. Now she’s on her way, with the kennels waving her off saying what a very good girl she is.

Well behaved Desy

Cats Lemmy and Igor travelled with Animalcouriers from Belgium to Warwickshire and got straight into exploring their new home. In Igor’s case, under the washing machine turned out to be the most enticing place, so he wasn’t available for a photoshoot!

But here's Lemmy proudly showing off their new multistory play bedroom.

This is Claude or, to give him his full name, 'It's me neo Claude'. This cool young dude was born in France and is travelling to Northern Ireland where he'll be trained as a therapy dog. Right now, though, cuddles are top of mind. Maybe he'll also get a sip of Guinness when he arrives!

Gorgeous red tabby Xenia, saved from a life on the streets, is celebrating her 4 months birthday. She's travelled from Italy to France, across the Channel to the UK, and is now heading for her new home in Dublin via the ferry from Holyhead. A special fishy birthday supper seems in order!

JJ and Ike are a beautiful pair of Swedish Vallhund puppies with great personalities. JJ is into everything while Ike watches, worrying that JJ will get told off. Impossible to be cross with those little short legs and big black eyes — they’d melt the hardest of hearts! These two were born in Ipswich and are being big and brave on their journey across the Irish Sea. We’ll meet their new owners in Dublin who’ll drive them to their new home in the Republic of Ireland.

      Courier S had lots of fun and games with the pups. Claude has the most wonderful face 😀

    How beautiful they are! And JJ and Ike have the total “Awwwww-factor” :o) I don’t know much about this breed, but I will ask Mr. Google now, they look interesting :o)

    What breed is Desy and how big is she? I like her looks. –Curt

      Desy is a mix – not sure what of. She’s roughly Alsatian size but doesn’t look nearly so big in this photo. She’s gorgeous and very well loved.

        Thought she had a mix look. I could tell she was well loved. Thanks. –Curt

    OMG, Desy looks just like our Spike!! They could be TWINS, and we thought Spike was some random mixed breed of questionable heritage – only to find he has a European cousin!! 🙂

      What an accident of fate that is as we think Desy is a random mix too. They’d make a fine couple 😉

    OMG, they’re all so gorgeous :). What a trip it must have been for them. Bless their sweet wee souls.

    Xenia looks lovely and what a happy ending! Hooray! All the woofers are cute too! =^.^=

    Love the endings for the animals that are rescues. I’m curious of why a dog needed to be brought from another country to be a therapy dog. Oodles of dogs are right in one’s backyard so to speak. Apparently this one that looks to be bloodhound or some such breed must have some sort of special abilities or do you know. Just very curious about that.

      Think it’s just that they’ve always had French Mastiffs and that’s where they got their latest from. They obviously train them up to be useful 😉

    Love your posts and photos. OMG, Claude aks neo Claude, is going to make a lot of people smile. What a perfect little/big guy for a therapy dog. So darn cute. xoxo

      He is destined to be a great therapy dog – everyone will want to give him a big hug!

    The puppies stole my heart this time around.

      Haven’t had too much puppy porn recently but these two are a delight.

    What a fantastic job you all have! To spend the days with these precious little souls and get them to their forever families with care is beyond a gift. The only thing that would make it better (for me anyways) is a people sized kennel so I could ride out back with the likes of JJ and Ike and just snuggle them all the way 😀

      We do get a lot of requests to travel along with our crew but the accommodation always brings you up short!
