After a 2,000 mile journey a young pup is now settling in to life in the UK .
The journey from a dog shelter in Santorini took approximately one month which included a stopover in Athens for the required canine jabs and health checks. The final leg of the journey was in a converted horsebox and the dog has acquired his own pet passport. The Wright family who brought the pup into the UK decided to rechristen him Maximus after a favourite Russell Crowe character from the film Gladiator.
Anyone wishing to make a donation to the Santorini Animal Welfare Association where Maximus came from can do so at: www.justgiving.com/EmShervington.
