A few days ago Grant & Aileen Davies approached World Bike Girl about a remarkable story of holiday turned animal rescue. Last week the Scottish couple were holidaying in Kas, Turkey and witnessed a puppy being thrown out the back of a truck. Sightseeing was ditched and puppy rescue ensued! Grant & Aileen took Yoda to a vets and went to great efforts to ensure his safety, including covering all costs to get him to the UK.
But now they had to find him a home … and that’s where you guys came in.
It’s well known that the WBG community have a soft spot for animals and that we are a caring bunch. A plea went out to share Yoda’s story. And share you did with a wonderful home being found. Congratulations to the Hudson family from Suffolk! I’m super excited to introduce you to Yoda’s new family! As always, comments can be left in the reply box at the bottom of this page.
Well done everyone!
Bev Hudson & daughter Melissa can’t wait to have Yoda with them!
Husband Paul with Bev – he’s delighted.
Yoda’s brother Ben!
Yoda’s brother Alfie!
And Yoda’s sister Ellie … opening her birthday cards … hadn’t known dogs could read Bev!
A massive well done and great appreciation to everyone who shared the post below and to those who offered homes.
This happy ever after ending to a wonderful selfless rescue by Grant and Aileen belongs to each and every one of you!

This wee puppy is 12 weeks old and only a few days ago was tossed out the back of a truck in Kas, Turkey.
Grant and Aileen Davies from Fife in Scotland were holidaying in Kas and watched on in horror.
“We could see 3 other dead poisoned dogs in the back of the open truck. We were unsure if one of the dead dogs was his mother.”
Grant and Aileen discarded the sightseeing, scooped the wee pup up and took him to a local vet. They then went about putting everything in place and covering all costs to give Yoda the chance of a good, safe and loving home. The life he wouldn’t have had the chance of if he had not been thrown from the truck, in front of such an amazing and caring couple.
So folks, lets give Grant and Aileen a helping hand in finding a good loving home for Yoda in the UK. Please share this post on your social media and pass onto anyone you think would be interested.
Yoda will be arriving in the UK, all expenses paid, approx Jan 2016. He is super friendly and highly intelligent. Expecting to weigh around 25kg.
Use the contact form below which goes direct to Grants’ email account so he can get back to you asap.
Leave your good wishes for Yoda, Grant and Aileen on the ‘leave a reply’ box at the bottom of this post.
Good luck everyone! Wishing this rescue the happy ever after it deserves. WBG xxx
