Vacations are supposed to be a time for relaxation, but for Plymouth University student Georgia Bradley, of Cornwall, her trip to Crete almost turned into a nightmare. The young woman was alone on the beach when two men asked her to go for a drink, and then turned violent when she refused. Thankfully, a stray dog courageously came to her rescue and scared the assailants off. But when she returned to the UK, Bradley faced a new, unexpected, problem.
“When I got home I couldn’t stop thinking about her,” Bradley told the Daily Mail. “I took the soonest flight back out that I could, which was two weeks later. It was a real risk because we may never have found her again. But when we saw Pepper on the beach, it was the best feeling ever.”
It took Bradley several trips, totalling thousands of miles and dollars in expenses, along with a long quarantine, to bring the dog back to the UK. And the biggest surprise? A week after landing, Pepper gave birth to six puppies! “It has been such a crazy journey. But I am over the moon. Pepper has settled in brilliantly,” says Bradley.
