Oscar – The Traveller Dog
A dog called Oscar has laid claim to the title of the animal kingdom's most intrepid explorer after visiting famous landmarks around the world. His travels include five continents, 29 countries and stopping off everywhere from the Eiffel Tower to the Taj Mahal.
Oscar was rescued from a South African kennel by owner Joanne Lefson five years ago. In May the pair began an epic journey hoping to inspire millions to help save his fellow canines living as strays on the streets. The £250,000 six-month trip - which Joanne funded by selling her home - also took in 15,000 shelter dogs and at more than 50 charity-run rescue centres.
