THE BALLAD OF ASLAN AND ROSE
Aslan, a 17-year-old Syrian teenager refugee has walked more than 300 miles (500 kilometers) to the Greek Island of Lesbos in his quest for a new life with Rose, his puppy.
“I love my dog. I need her,” Aslan said.
GOOD LUCK, ASLAN AND ROSE!
A teenager walked more than 300 miles to escape war-torn Syria with his puppy.
Refugee Aslan, 17, took his dog Rose all the way to the Greek island Lesbos as he felt he couldn’t leave his pooch behind.
The Syrian teenager is one of 300,000 migrants who have arrived in Greece this year, even making a passport for Rose.
