Alice is swapping Sweden for the UK

Having dropped off Fudge and Angel in Germany, Animalcouriers headed via Denmark to Sweden to collect Swedish Vallhund Alice.

Her grandpa drove her over 1,000 km from Sweden’s skiing region to meet us in Malmo, where it was strangely quiet after the Eurovision song contest the night before. Alice is on her way to join the rest of her family who’ve moved to Watford. We know some little girls are waiting impatiently for this most important member of the family to arrive!

    • Very interesting and her owner gave us this further info: “Alice is a Swedish Vallhund or as they are called in swedish. “Västgötaspets” an old viking breed used for looking after the house and the cattle. they are related to Welsh Corgis and very rare, even in Sweden. there is however atleast one breeder in UK/Ireland. They are the most wonderful family dogs.”
      We hope to encounter more, they are really lovely if Alice is anything to go by.

      • Ahhh… last night I was trying to think of the breed she reminded me of. Brain fog prevented the connection to Corgis even though I have two as neighbors (and had four next to me at the previous house!) Now that you mention it, I can certainly see the resemblance.

  5. That’s one yummy looking desert but I’d still pick Alice everyday of the week cause she’s scrumptious. I’m in love with that smile!
