Tourist Adopts Stray Dog That Saved Her After She Was Attacked In Greece

They say that a dog is man’s best friend. It’s true. Time and time again, we are amazed by stories of character, intelligence and sheer loyalty by our canine friends and one woman who was saved by a stray dog repaid his kindness by adopting him.


Georgia Bradley was relaxing in paradise when her bliss suddenly turned to fear.

The 25-year-old tourist was soaking up the sun on a remote beach in Greece while her boyfriend was at a nearby cafe, when she was approached by two men she didn’t know.

Ms Bradley says they started harassing her and became aggressive when she rejected their advances.

Then, panic well and truly set in when one of them grabbed her.

“I decided to go for a walk along the beach, and found two Greek men who kept harassing me to go out for a drink,” Ms Bradley said. “I kept telling them I didn’t want to.

“Then one of them grabbed me on the arm and I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was on my own and it was a very scary and difficult situation.”

Help came in an unexpected form: A small, black dog suddenly ran over and started barking at the men, scaring them off. It even followed her back to her apartment.

She believes the dog, which she has since named Pepper, was abandoned as she had seen it wandering around the town alone and trying to get the attention of tourists.

Ms Bradley, a British university student, tried to get a local animal shelter to take the dog in but had no luck. Then, it was time to go.

“When we left to go to the airport, we looked back and Pepper was running after the car. It was heartbreaking,” she said.

“When I got home I couldn’t stop thinking about her so I took the soonest flight back out that I could, which was two weeks later.”

She searched for the dog for five weeks, and eventually found it at Georgioupoli beach in Crete, the same place where she had been harassed.

Once it was confirmed to be a stray, Ms Bradley adopted Pepper and brought it back to the UK. It was a process that cost thousands, involving microchipping, a rabies vaccination, a pet passport and 21 days in quarantine.

But it was all worth it.

“It has been such a crazy journey, but I am over the moon. Pepper has settled in brilliantly.”

This is wonderful and a match made in heaven. Good things come to those who do good and that is true for dogs as well. Thankfully, this pup’s kindness has been repaid by being offered a warm place to sleep and a new loving family.
