Is large dog allowed?

Can we take our large dog (20kg) on the train in Turkey? He will not fit in a cage. We wish to travel from Bucharest to Istanbul and then Istanbul to Sofia. Do you know if we can also take him on the train in Bulgaria? 


Dogs are allowed only in cages  which can be carried on knees and only in standard carriages (not in sleepers or couchettes) in Turkey.

You can follow up-to-date details about trains at Bucharest-Istanbul and Istanbul-Sofia trains.
