WHERE IS LOUKANIKOS? THE GREEK STRAY.                   

In 2007 demonstrators in Greece mourned the death of Kanellos, the stray that always accompanied Loukanikos, another stray protest dog in Athens, Greece.They both avoided police and fire and joined forces with the lines of demonstrators in the Greek capital, to become famous. They have been mentioned in The Huffington Post, The Guardian and even Buzzfeed.

The heroic actions of these two wonderful Greek strays has gained widespread recognition in the Greek riots of 2008, up until today. A local college student helps Kanellos, who by 2008 had developed bad arthritis and needed a dog wheel chair.

But where is Loukanikos today?

To everyone in Greece, please update us all on Loukanikos, your heroic Greek dog.We all miss him.
