Kanellos the Greek Protest Dog

This mysterious stray in Athens showed up at every major protest in the city for the two years before his death in 2008. Nobody seems to know a lot about him, and photojournalists were always puzzled that he kept showing up in their pictures. He’s become somewhat of a celebrity in Greece, and even has his own Facebook page.

Lots more shots here.

  1. We are currently in Greece where we have experienced the strikes and seen the stray dogs…Funny thing is we have only seen them bark at policemen or policecars and otherwise just wander or sleep in the sun.
