A moving reunion
The tourists who saw disembarking Pretty wondered where she was coming from. They then took her to the local police who took care of her and then entrusted her to a local shelter. After checking her microchip, the trainers noted that she was domiciled at Denmark. A disturbing fact.
Before they had time to find her owners, a woman at sea near Calpe, a coastal town nearly 250 kilometers away, contacted them. She had heard the news and wanted to know if the event was real or if she had dreamed it. She couldn’t believe her ears.
The couple therefore reached the port, rented a vehicle and headed hastily towards the refuge ofAguilas.
