Keighleynews –A rescue dog recently saved from Crete is back at home after a traumatic adventure in the  Lothersdale countryside, North Yorkshire,  Keighley News reports

Harley fled his new ‘forever’ home after being alarmed by a tractor starting up on the road outside.

A massive Facebook appeal revealed several sightings in the area but a frantic midnight search by his adoptive family failed to unearth him.

Hartley’s new  owner,Kathy Robson slept downstairs after hours scouring Harley’s last-known locations, she heard him scratching on the door at 4am when the god found his way home after missing for 18 hours.

Harley and Hector were brought to the UK this year – Harley only three weeks ago – after Kathy and her family fell in love with them during a visit to the Gouves Animal Shelter in Crete.


Kathy said: “Some amazing volunteers in Crete make it possible for these poor souls to be brought to the UK to have a loving home.

“Harley had been at the shelter from being a puppy and been outside in a cage all his life. It’s only in the last couple of weeks that he’s come out of his shell.
