Too Hot To Handle star Francesca Farago styled her pet Pomeranian Romeo as a service dog as she travelled with him to the UK on Wednesday night.
The Canadian beauty, who landed in London on morning Thursday to move in with her girlfriend Demi Sims, took to Instagram to document her transatlantic journey with her four-legged friend, who was carried onto the plane in a Christian Dior bag.
Romeo, who last month was flown by reality star Francesca over to Cancun, Mexico – where she’d enjoyed an extended ‘work’ trip with Demi – was shown wearing a black vest emblazoned with the words ‘service dog’ as they embarked on their journey.
According to Gov.uk, only travellers arriving in the country with guide or assistance dogs are permitted to travel with them in aircraft cabins.

Journey: Too Hot To Handle star Francesca Farago styled her pet Pomeranian Romeo as a service dog as she travelled with him to the UK on Wednesday night
The site states that British travel companies ‘usually recognise guide or assistance dogs trained by organisations that are members of either: Assistance Dogs International [or] International Guide Dog Federation’.
States ADI on their site: ‘Assistance dogs partnered teams which are not trained by a program accredited by ADI or International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF) are currently assessed on a case-by-case basis by the individual airlines.’
It is not yet known if Romeo underwent the extensive training required to qualify under either banner, though Francesca did share on Instagram that she endured ‘three weeks of paperwork’ to bring her dog into the country.
Francesca, who was left behind in Mexico by Demi as she readied herself for the big move, had previously expressed concern about being able to get Romeo into the UK.

However, she appeared to have had all issues ironed out by the time she was seen embarking on her journey, which saw her departing from New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport to fly to London’s Heathrow Airport.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Francesca Farago for comment.
Just three weeks ago, on January 30, Francesca shared footage of herself excitedly welcoming the arrival of her fluffy white pooch to Mexico after he was flown in.
‘He’s finally here,’ Francesca wrote as she posted footage of the dog meandering around a glistening swimming pool.

Francesca was joined by her friend Chris Georges on the journey to the UK, where the brunette beauty told her Instagram followers she will remain before jetting off to Los Angeles on receiving her US visa – while she’ll also spend some time in Toronto.
She explained how she initially wanted to fly to England with her new flame following their romantic ‘work’ trip, but had to complete ‘three weeks’ of paperwork in order to travel with Romeo.
On her journey over to the UK, Francesca took part in a Q&A with her followers on her Instagram Stories, revealing her travel plans and speaking about her romance.

Elsewhere, she was asked how she and Demi met, and responded matter-of-factly: ‘She slid into my DMs.’
Last month, the blonde and her TOWIE star girlfriend, 24, shocked their fans on social media as they got their names tattooed on each other’s bottom and wrist, just days after going public with their relationship.
The pair were among a host of reality stars who switched their ‘work’ trips from Dubai to Mexico amid a ban on UAE flights.

The couple spent time together in the country with Demi’s sister Chloe, 38, while her cousin Frankie, 33, flew back home to the UK earlier in the month.
Canadian Francesca first garnered attention for her role in the Netflix original series Too Hot to Handle last April, when she briefly dated her co-star Harry Jowsey.
