Last Easter whilst in Kassiopi, our friends fell in love with a dog very similar to an English setter, he is now happily residing in Kent with his new girlfriend Ruby a Dalmation thanks to help from Cheryl at CARE and is named Pano, he was very under weight but gradually getting fatter and is obsessed with chasing birds.
We left Corfu on the 21st April and Pano arrived courtesy of Dave by van on the 4th May after being cared for by Cheryl, such a worthy charity and when I see him it still makes me well up, he's so happy and so are they.

Susie, how lovely to hear of a happy ending for a little stray. Our little dog, Bella, also looks like an English setter but is much smaller. She was also a stray and has been a wonderful pet for six years now.

Bella is just like him and has the same black ears but she doesn't have the eye patch!

He's gorgeous!

I've owned English Setters for over 30 years here in the UK and they are like hen's teeth!!  I was absolutely amazed at the amount there are in Corfu!!  Two in cages in Sidari which seemed a little sad knowing how much exercise they like and then on the beaches!!

I think I would like to adopt one when we finally get settled this year, hopefully.  We will be bringing two dogs with us but I'm sure there will be room for one more!!  (Don't tell the husband)!  ;D

If they are in small cages they are almost certainly for transporting when hunting.

Remember that legally, dogs aren't permitted on beaches although we and others have taken them on the beach. Some people will object.

They were in kennel size area, two setters and a small white dog.  It's good to know they go out hunting though.  Just out of curiosity, what do they hunt? My setters have always been the 'show' type.

I think ours was a 'bird' dog. She still chases after them but obviously she was of no use to the hunter if she was terrified of the guns.

They are often kept in cages because they are usually working dogs not pets, unlike our softies! They are worth a lot of money so it's probably best that they are not left in the gardens.

Hi Trisa,

Our local paper has just done an article about our friend John who adopted Pano and CARE have added it to their website if anyone fancies a read.

I do so love a happy ending! What a great story!

It is also good for others to read that it is not nearly as difficult to transport a dog back to the UK as it used to be!

It sounds like Pano is having a wonderful life!

Thank you for sharing the story.

Hello everyone. I'm sorry for my bad english. There is a problem: we are found a homeless persian cat at Perama, he is very poor, his eyes fester, we sad and worry about him, because we live in another country and can't bring him with us. We give him food and water, but we already flight back to home and worried, because he home cat and cannot find food by himself, only from people. Cat is sitting near cafe-tavern Nisos http://nisoscorfu.gr (which is across the road from hotel Aegli and some steps to left), at the corner of parking (you need some steps down from hill). He usually sits under green Opel or near. GPS coordinate 39.586639,19.913714
I take some photo to your understand where he sits.

Maybe anyone can came to Perama and take him to home or to animal shelter?

Hi Max
Not sure if you are aware but the cat you were concerned about has been collected and is being looked after.  :) :) :) :) :) :)

Well done for raising his plight.  :D
