Animalcouriers are on their way to the UK with 12 dogs travelling from Greece.
Billy hails from Kozani in northern Greece. This big strong fellow, who is also a real softie, and has a foster home waiting for him in the UK.
Peaches, in contrast, is our smallest traveller, but makes up for her diminutive size with a big personality. Raised by Rebecca of Lesvos Stray Dog and Cat Adoptions, Peaches is on her way to a foster home in Manchester, where would-be adopters will doubtless flock to her.
Robbie was a last-minute addition to our passenger list. Raised with Peaches on Lesvos, he has a new home waiting in Wilmslow.

This trio of gorgeous dogs are on their way to Sarah. She fell in love with them and decided to adopt them all! They’re among a group of dogs that used to live on an old military site. Rebecca from Lesvos Stray Cat and Dog adoptions is working hard to rehome them all, as support for the colony has now ended.
Starlight Barking, who work closely with Lesvos Stray Dog and Cat Adoptions, were asked to find a special dog for a little girl who will benefit, it is thought, from having a dog to look after. Aris, who has a very gentle personality, was selected to join the household and become part of the family.
When Eleanor was on holiday on Lesvos earlier in the year, she was found by and fell in love with Roula. Eleanor asked Rebecca from Lesvos Stray Dog and Cat Adoptions to look after Roula until she could travel to the UK.
