ATHENS, Greece – Peanuts have met with several visiting European leaders since becoming Greece’s top dog in April.
On Thursday, the gold-haired former misguided decided to introduce himself more forcefully সং briefly interrupting a press conference held by the prime ministers of Greece and Slovakia.
Greek Premier Kyriakos Mistotakis expressed support for the country’s Balkan neighbors’ efforts to join the European Union, and peanuts were heard chirping loudly a few meters away from the prime minister’s official residence.
Mitsotakis turned to Slovakia’s Edward Hager, saying, “The dog we recently adopted is back to Slovakian Edward Hager, who laughed when he heard an interpreter.
“This is the first time he has intervened during a press conference. Usually, he greets guests at the door and is more polite, ”Mitsotakis said.
He received peanuts after meeting with animal welfare volunteers on World Wandering Animal Day in April. The dog, who usually wears a blue bandana on his collar, is seen roaming the rooms of the official residence, known as Maximos Mansion.
The government of Mitsotakis has led efforts to crack down on animal cruelty.
Parliament last year voted to make serious animal cruelty punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Last week, lawmakers approved a plan to create a national pet registry with DNA samples from cats and dogs that has not been sterilized.
Last year, Greek President Katrina Saquelropolo, a former senior judge, adopted Calypso, a cat rescued on Carpathos Island.
The two were photographed together for a social media post.
