A college student who was harassed by two men while vacationing in Crete, Greece, has spent thousands of dollars to adopt the dog that saved her from the attack.
SWNS25 year-old Georgia Bradley says she was approached by two men on the beach. After she refused to go “have a drink” with them, one of the men grabbed her by the arm.
To her surprise, a stray dog suddenly appeared and did not stop barking at the pair. The small, black dog stood by Bradley’s side until the men walked away.
Bradley, who’s decided to name the dog Pepper, told the Plymouth Herald: “She saved me. Pepper shot out of nowhere, jumped up at me and began barking and licking my hand, and that made the men think twice. She must have noticed something was wrong.When I went back to the apartment she followed me and finally let us stroke her. We had an instant bond.”
SWNS“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.”
Bradley would fly over 6,000 miles back and forth to the Greek island over a span of five weeks searching for her rescuer.
“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.”
Pepper was microchipped, wormed with a rabies jab and given a pet passport. After adopting Pepper, she flew her home to the UK.
Pepper then had a further surprise for her new owner, as she gave birth to six puppies.
SWNS“It’s been such a crazy journey,” Bradley added. “But I am over the moon.”
