Couriers M and Paul have enjoyed a trip taking in Malta and Italy. Among our passengers were several dogs heading to the UK from Italy, as their families’ tour of duty at the NATO base in Naples comes to an end.
Super cute Briard Shepherd pup Bruno, just two months old, travelled with us from breeder Angie in Lincolnshire to excited new owner Derek in Veneto, Italy.
Kobe and Fletcher
Podenco mix duo Kobe and Fletcher have been living on Gibraltar with owner Rugile. We collected them from our colleagues Automascotas at La Line de la Concepcion — just north of the border between Spain and Gib. Rugile’s work means a relocation to Malta, and her handsome boys travelled with us to join her there.
Darling Daisy, a Springer Spaniel cross, belongs to Robin and Lesley. She travelled with us from Malta to Worcestershire.
Emanuele spotted Brittany Spaniel Chico living in a small cage on a piece of waste ground between two buildings. The dog was never walked, and his only shelter from the elements was a box that was too small to contain his whole body.
Emanuele managed to track down Chico’s owner, who lived in a block of flats nearby. He eventually persuaded the owner to let him buy Chico from him. Now Chico is travelling with us to join Emanuele for an immeasurably more enjoyable new life in the UK.
Booboo and Mallery
Black beauties Booboo and Mallery belong to Sarah, who’s swapping Naples for Uxbridge. Sarah went on ahead to get everything ready for her cats’ arrival, so we collected them from the rather nice cattery at the Lega Pro Animale, a pet charity supported and staffed by kind and helpful Germans.
Stunning Weimaraner Tess, born in Italy, belongs to NATO serviceman Andrew and family, who are leaving Italy and heading back to Yorkshire.
Another NATO collection in Naples — Barnaby belongs to Joe and Agnes, who are on their way back to Kent.
Yellow Cockatiel Cochin joined our trip in Naples. She’s the beloved companion of Giorgia, who’s swapping the Italian sun for the delights of London.
