Animalcouriers met up with Annette in Torrevieja, Spain, to collect her 12 pets for their journey to Livingstone in Scotland. We then scooped up three young pups bred in Scotland, heading to new owners in England.

Heading south with three puppies

Having delivered Annette’s family safely to their Scottish home, we then rounded up three puppies for the journey south.
