Dave and Julie Evardson of Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire in England, recently shared their story of taking home a Cyprus stray in the hope of getting more done to help abandoned animals.
In a report in the Grimsby Telegraph last week, the animal lovers revealed how they had taken in an abandoned dog—who they have named Droushia after the village near where they stayed —during one of their frequent trips to Cyprus four years ago.
“They found her wandering in the fields near their apartment in the Akamas region of Cyprus, and when they took the dog to a local charity they were unable to find her a home,” the newspaper reported.
According to the report, Dave told the Grimsby Telegraph: “Having just lost our lovely Bernese mountain dog Portia, we were perhaps vulnerable but agreed to set wheels in motion to take Droushia back home to Cleethorpes.
“This entailed a quarantine period at Paphiakos’ clinic, then a flight to Manchester where we collected her some seven months later.
