Mini Bull Terrier Peabody (aka Boy) travelled with Animalcouriers from Greece to the UK to take part in Crufts. When he met John for the first time, Peabody stood his ground. But once John spoke to him in Greek, there was a complete transformation. Wagging his tail, Peabody leapt with excitement and threw himself at John!

Meanwhile Daisy, who came from the Filozoikos Shelter in Athens, arrived at her new home with Sarah, an old friend of the shelter. This lovely dog grew in confidence during the course of the trip and has quickly settled in to her UK home. Sarah sent some lovely photos and wrote to say:

“Thank you for bringing Daisy safely over. She will be just fine and is already wagging her tail!”

We also reunited Dalmatian Snoopy and his cat companions Billie and Charlie with their owners. These three amigos travelled with us from Toulouse in France and received a rapturous welcome at their Bristol home. The cats will remember it well, as they lived here before the family moved to France, but it’s all new for Snoopy. He’s such a self-assured chap, we’re sure he’ll soon put his Gallic charm to work and win over many hearts.
