Whitby’s historic steam bus will be carrying an extra special passenger this summer to meet and greet visitors...Millie the rescue dog.
Vernon and Viv Smith who operate Elizabeth got the two year-old Staffie from Whitby Dog Rescue last week where she had been handed in following a marital split and she is already a regular on the bus route.
Vernon said: “We always used to have a dog but he died two years ago and we said we would never have another. But Viv went soft and I went even softer and we ended up with her.
“Millie is absolutely loving it and passengers have given her biscuits and left money to buy her treats with.”
