Loukanikos, the Greek riot dog

I couldn’t help dedicate a post to Loukanikos, the Greek Riot Dog. I love dogs, especially if they fight against repressive forces. Loukanikos, named Louk as well, is fighting in Athens since 2008.

R.I.P. Loukanikos

Loukanikos passed away on 21 May 2014, although the news wasn’t known until 9 October. His health had been affected by the tear gas, and had breathing problems. “He was on the couch sleeping, when suddenly his heart stopped beating” Loukanikos’ carer told.
