Rex and Flor are swapping Portugal for Cyprus

Rex and Flor are swapping Portugal for Cyprus

Pointer Rex and his companion Flor, a Boerboel, are off to join their owner Isabel in Cyprus.

Because she cares so much about these two, Isabel wanted their journey to be as stress-free as possible. But they’re both big dogs, and there were no easy routes for them to take from Portugal.

Fortunately, her very kind trainer Claudio was able to drive them from Lisbon to Calais, in northern France, which is where Animalcouriers met them yesterday to bring the dogs to the UK. Courier J2 spent some time walking them and getting to know them, ably assisted by a handful of best British bangers!

From the UK, Rex and Flor will fly to Cyprus. They have to wait until 9 December for a flight that can take two such large travel boxes. So we have arranged for them to stay at a kennels near Heathrow airport until then.

      They’re not that common but we moved two others recently. Great big lovely dogs with a tendency to look mournful 😉

        They are great, I thought it’s a nordic breed, for the name what sounds a little like Smørrebrød, but I was totally wrong, it’s a breed from ZA – wow!

      They are very friendly (especially if you have sausages in your pocket) 😉

    It looks like the weight of Flor’s head is almost more than Rex can handle. And the nose pointed toward the pocket is indicative of good things inside. 🙂 Curt

    It’s so hard to say goodbye to our pets, even for a short trip.

      Yes, Isabel has had a long wait for her babies. She’s going to get a pretty rapturous welcome come 9 December!

      Yes, you don’t see Boerboels very often – they’re lovely dogs.
