Georgia Bradley was on holiday in Greece when two men approached her on the beach and asked whether she would like to join them for a drink.

When she refused, the men immediately lost their cool and grabbed Georgia violently by the arm. Poor Georgia suddenly saw her life flash before her eyes. Terrified, she tried to call for help, but was much too far down the beach for anyone to hear her.

A real hero

That’s when out of the blue, a scruffy stray dog came running to her aid and started barking loudly at her attackers. The men took fright and eventually let go of Georgia’s arm. That’s when she started running back up the beach towards her group of friends.

Once Georgia was finally able to calm down, she realised the little stray who saved her life had followed her all the way back up the beach. When she walked back to her apartment, she followed her there as well. Georgia thanked her new friend profusely for what she’d done for her. She gave her water and fed her, all the while showering her with cuddles.

The happy ending they both deserved

Sadly, Georgia had to fly home to England a few days later. By then, the pair had formed a strong bond. In fact, the little stray ran after the taxi when Georgia headed off to the airport. The scene was heart-breaking.

Once home, Georgia couldn’t shake the feeling that a part of her was missing. So, two weeks later, she flew back to Greece. She spent days searching for her little friend. When she finally found her, she immediately started the process of getting her a pet passport. Within a few weeks, she was able to fly home with Pepper, as she named her. Now the two best friends are living happily ever after in the UK! What a wonderful “tail”!
