Holidays are meant to be fun, relaxing and enjoyable. They can come in the form of a trip abroad, the countryside or even a few nights on a nearby beach.
Whatever the case, the last thing one wants to have while on holiday is a traumatizing experience.
25-year-old student Georgia Bradley was on holiday in Greece when one such incident occurred.
Georgia took a small evening stroll on the beach by her hotel one evening when she noticed that two strange men were walking behind her. She thought nothing of it at first, but eventually realized they were following 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,” Georgia told the Daily Mail. “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,” Georgia said in an interview with Daily Mail.
Suddenly, rescue came in the most unexpected form. A rather hairy form, in fact.
“She shot out of nowhere, jumped up at me and began barking and licking my hand, and that made the men think twice. She saved me. She must have noticed something was wrong,” Georgia said.
The two men were scared off by the dog, quickly disappearing from the beach and at last leaving Georgia alone.
The little dog followed Georgia all the way to her hotel. Georgia asked around, but could not locate the dog’s owner. Georgia decided to call the dog Pepper and they ran into each other several times during the remainder of her holiday.
“Pretty much every evening, we saw her around outside the bars and restaurants trying to get the attention of the tourists,” Georgia explains. “Several times, she followed us around and we wondered what we could do. When we left to go to the airport, we looked back and Pepper was running after the car. It was heartbreaking.”
An important decision
But upon her return to Britain, Georgia made a decision. She had to do something. She would adopt Pepper.
“Pepper,” a stray dog, defended British tourist Georgia Bradley after two strangers approached her in Greece.
Georgia booked a trip back to Greece and was aided by an animal organization in her adoption of Pepper. After getting all her shots, a chip and passport, Pepper could finally accompany Georgia home.
And just one week after Pepper arrived, Georgia discovered that she was pregnant. Soon, Georgia had a house crowded with six lively little puppies — and a very proud mother.
