Meet Kanellos, the Greek protest dog

Font Size:

For the last two years, one demonstrator has never failed to attend a protest in Greece’s capital – a dog called Kanellos.

Greek photographers capturing riot footage started to notice the pooch when he kept appearing in their negatives.  Their photos show the mutt appearing at nearly every clash between angry locals and the police in Athens.  Not surprisingly, he surfaced again during the recent protests during a nationwide strike.
