Courier Richard set off from the UK with three dogs and a cat heading for Italy; and returned to the UK with two dogs from France and another two from Italy.
Lovely little Yorkie Leone belongs to Simona and Stephano. After a couple of years living and working in the UK, Simona and Stephano and heading back to Italy with their two children. Leone is going on slightly ahead with Animalcouriers, and will be taken care of by Simona’s mum until the rest of the family arrives.
Jess, Cole and Maxi
Tremendous trio Golden Retriever Jess, Labrador Cole and tabby cat Maxi, who belong to Hannah and Ralph, travelled with us from Cheshire to Sarnico in Italy.
Rambo and Ralph
Yorkies Rambo and Ralph belong to George and his wife, who are relocating from Nice to Hampshire. Rambo has a bit of a bounce to his gait due to a historic operation on one of his back legs, but doesn’t let anything hold him back. Both dogs whizz about like cartoon characters and love having a fuss made of them.
Arya, a Lagotto Romagnolo, belongs to Stephanie, Luke and Marcelo. Lagotti were traditionally bred as gun dogs and water retrievers (Lagotto comes from the Italian word ‘lago’, meaning lake), they also make loyal and loving family pets.
We collected Arya from a kennels with the rather marvellous name of Fidolandia, in the Treviso area of Italy, as her family had gone on ahead to the UK. Arya proved to be a delightful passenger full of endearing antics.
Handsome Labrador Finlay (Fin to his friends) belongs to Gray, an international teacher. In the past, Fin has generally travelled by air when Gray has moved to a new job, but Gray felt that the trip from Italy to Scotland would be easier for him by road. Fin showed his chops as a seasoned traveller and was very much at ease throughout the journey.
