    Hey guys! I live in Portugal which belongs to the EU and If I were to move to the UK with my dog what would be implied? I looked for this on the internet and it wasn't conclusive :S can you help me?

    Portugal is on the list of the " pet travel scheme " so you don't need to leave your Syrah in quarantine when entering the U.K . You will have to have her microchipped first ( in case she isn't ) , and then she needs proof of rabies vaccination ( at least done 21 days before entering ) also she has to be treated for Tape-worm by a professional ( not less than 24 hours and not more than 120 hours before entering the U.K ) not too bad , isn't it ?
    By the way she is beautiful !!

    thanks guys icon_biggrin.gif but it's not about Syrah. I'm gonna get a "German Malinois" next month. My first dog that is actually for me, not for my dads hunting activities, and she/he is gonna be registered under my name icon_smile.gif so even though i've grown up with more dogs at home, this is the first one that i can train my way, take everywhere and call really mine...

    Your dog won't be very happy moving to UK.

    Why the hell not?

    I am assuming that the German Malinois is the same breed we refer to in the U.S. as the Belgian Malinois. They are very active and intelligent dogs. They are not a sedentary dog at all and they are happiest when they are given lots of exercise and are challenged with lots of mental stimulation.

    I meant "German Malinois" because it's a mix of a German Shepherd and a Bergian Malinois.

    Im not gonna get her anymore icon_sad.gif but still im getting a dog this year and im gonna move away and take the dog with me.

    Anyway! a friend got me the info i needed which was very helpful and I will post it here for you. This works for anywhere around the world that wants to move to the UK with a pet.

    either the german shepherd or the belgian malinois are dogs well suited for winter and cold weather, but thank you for mentioning that icon_smile.gif
