Includes a metal grate door, storage compartments, optional wheels/handle for easy transport, and a partition/divider to accommodate growing puppies. Measures 21" w/ 27" l/20" h (about: 53 / 68 / 50 cm) and take your dog back to the UK with you?

Hopefully you will consider taking the poor animal to the UK, I have looked up the procedure and have reprinted it below, the financial outlay would undoubtedly be considerable, but if I were you I would consider it a small price to pay for the sake of peace of mind.
The Pet Travel Scheme ("PETS") is a system which allows animals to travel easily between member countries without undergoing quarantine. A Pet Passport is a document that officially records information related to a specific animal, as part of that procedure. The effect is to drastically speed up and simplify travel with and transport of animals between member countries, compared to previous procedures, if the regulations are followed. Pets can only travel through Animal Reception Centres that are currently licensed with DEFRA.
One example is the Anglo European company, based at Robin Hood Airport, Doncaster Sheffield.
PETS was originally introduced for the benefit of animals entering or returning to the United Kingdom from other E/U countries, since historically the UK had very strong controls to safeguard against rabies including a compulsory 6 month quarantine period on imports of many animals. On October 1, 2001, several E/U countries introduced the PETS scheme, under which animals from any member country may freely travel (with the correct procedure) to any other member country on approved carriers. A correctly prepared cat or dog may be imported without quarantine into the United Kingdom from Greece under the Pet Passport scheme, but only by an authorised transport company:

I am still working on finding new homes for them the dogs home is a way off yet.
